  3. Hi all, Ive been trying to compile a list of summer schools for this summer that are in person rather than online. This may be somewhat optimistic - but I’m aware that some deadlines are looming so wanted to do some information gathering sooner rather than later! My dancer will soon be thinking about whether she wants to apply to vocational school and if so, which ones. I’ve therefore been restricting my searches to summer schools that have post 16 courses. I think this might give her a taster of the school generally. She’s not yet sure whether she wants to go down the classical route or aim for a more varied dance education. Just to restrict things further, I haven’t gone for any London locations - we’re not ruling them out but thinking that maybe next summer we will have a closer look at those as options. So far, our list for summer schools consists of: Elmhurst, Northern Ballet School (couldn’t find this on their website as the page link states it doesn’t exist, however when using google I came across the application form for this year), Tring, KS Dance Moorland (missed the deadline for this one). I can’t seem to find any info on whether Hammond is going ahead. Maybe someone has some info on this? I haven’t included RBS as I’m sure the deadline for that has passed. I was desperately hoping that RCS would go ahead this summer, but I received an email today that suggests it is online only, which is frustrating. This one was at the top of our list! Have I missed any others that are worth considering? I know there are a few amazing summer schools that aren’t attached to vocational courses - but we wanted to kill two birds with one stone really, and try and get a taste of a school whilst attending a summer course. Also if anyone does recommend any London based summer schools, please do suggest them. Any guidance or suggestions gratefully received!
  4. Has anyone got any experience with it? I don’t know much about it at all!
  5. I wondered if anyone felt it would be useful to share thoughts and experiences on the dance/ballet Easter or summer schools their children have taken part in this year? I thought it might be useful, given that there is often a choice and they can’t do them all (even if they would like to!) for people to share any experiences that they have had... It’s a good way to find out what is out there too! I am happy to share my DDs experiences this year if others are similarly interested 😊. She has really enjoyed both of the courses she did this year and found them very different from one another!
  6. Looking at this & rather confused....maybe I have missed something Am I right that for selection process you can choose to either send in an audition video or attend alive audition? For latter it states that you must write preferred date/venue on application form & refers you to audition page on website for dates. These dates seem surely to relate just to entry for Full Time Training? Or are these for Summer School also? From people's past experience, by roughly what time do people hear if they have been selected for SS? I imagine it to be a case of the sooner accommodation is booked, the cheaper it is..... And are there are scholarships/funding routes at all? Ever hopeful
  7. Hi there My first post here, so thank you for reading. Have any of you ever done the Tring Summer school with boarding? Just the four days? My little girl will be nearing 11 and is really keen to give it a go, but with the age range from 9-18 and her being only 10 at the time, I worry she would be the youngest by years and would feel well out of her depth. Do younger children board too? She thinks it's a dance camp! Thank you
  8. Does anybody have any experience of this summer school? My 15 year old daughter is keen to go but I’m reluctant to sign her up as she won’t know anybody and she will need to stay in accommodation provided as we live too far away to commute. Classes finish at 4pm so I’m wondering what they do in the evening? The last day to register is tomorrow as I’m leaving it all to the very last minute........ Thank you in advance
  9. Hello does anyone know of any ballet summer schools or intensive workshops in the summer holidays in the south east? Asking for my 8 year old daughter, who will go spare without ballet over the long break.
  10. Hi all We are looking for a summer school for my DD that doesn't require an audition and is open to recreational dancers. She loves ballet, and is currently working at RAD Grade 6 and Intermediate after moving from a previous school which kept her from progressing at all. She doesn't want to be professional, but wants to be the best she dancer she can be. Ideally the location would be Yorkshire or Scotland due to family reasons. Any suggestions?
  11. Iam over in Australia but wonder if a website/list/topic already on here exists of all summer schools offered in dance in the uk..... looking at UK summer 2018 for a 11 year old dance crazy girl So far iam aware of RBS Elmhurst Yorkshire ballet summer school do others exist which are RAD ballet focused? any tips wrt numbers applying for these would be very helpful thanku x
  12. Dear ALL We are extremely honoured and excited to announce that Director, Oliver Matz from Tanz Akademie Zurich will be joining our International Summer Schools in 2019. Possibly one of the most influential teachers/directors on the planet. Oliver travels the globe sharing his knowledge, judging the BIGGEST competitions in the world, successfully training the winners of many major competitions. He is an extremely busy, and important figure in the Ballet World today, and to have him choose 'Woodside Dance Retreat' as his only UK Summer School in 2019 is a big deal. A BIG, BIG, DEAL. If you have not secured a Summer School for 2019, then please email nicola@woodsidedanceretreat.com to get the final few places and ask about our payment plan to help spread the cost until next summer. Oliver Matz will join our already confirmed incredible line up below to share his extensive knowledge for a full day with our lucky 12 students:- Edward Watson MBE (Principal Dancer Royal Ballet Company) Ricardo Cervera (Ballet Master Royal Ballet Company) Anita Young (Royal Ballet Company and RBS) ONLY 12 students. Be seen by, helped by, and work with some of the best teachers/professionals in the business. Don't be stuck in a room of 35-40 and disappear to the background. Personal care, personal correction in a warm and friendly learning environment. Be the best you can be. Plus a few little extra's as normal :- 2 x professional photo shoots, one on location. 1 x West End theatre trip and return by Limo. Course fee's £1,395.00. We are not the cheapest Summer School, but we feel we offer something incredible, personal and a once in a life time experience which could change your dance career forever. We hope to hear from you soon Many thanks Nicola Moriarty Principal
  13. Hi my daughter wants to apply for the RBS spring intensive and summer school for 2019. She isnt bothered which one she attends if she is even lucky enough to receive a place (she knows its a huge long shot). Question I have though ....can we do one application and one application fee to cover all 3 options? Or do we do a seperate application for spring intensive and one for summer school? I have emailed and asked but no reply yet. Also has anyone applied and know when we will be notified of results? Is a week for spring intensive long enough? Has anyone had a child attend? thanks
  14. Could anyone recommend a Summer School for all types of dance not just ballet, we are Midlands based but willing to travel, many thanks

  17. We received a nicely worded email from the Royal Ballet yesterday late afternoon inviting parents to audition their child for Summer School. It came from the Summer School email address not Auditions. Has anyone else received one yesterday afternoon? Not sure why we have one.X

  19. Has anyone been to this before? 17 year old DS keen to apply. Accommodation appears to be in a hostel quite a way from where they will be dancing. I can ring the school but thought I'd ask on here first ????
  20. I thought it would be great to get as much feedback as possible from all the different summer schools this year, all in one tidy thread! Dd is doing Hammond, York dance assembly, and NBT this year, but would love to try others next year so would be great to hear everyone’s experiences.
  21. We are looking for a two week course to send students on scholarship - they will be flying in to Heathrow or Luton. We are considering YBSS, but the journey up there from London seems to be too difficult without a chaperone. All the RAD summer schools are now only one week and we would prefer two. Does anyone have any suggestions??? Or alternatively ideas on how to get the girls to York safely????
  22. Morning Does anyone know of any summer intensive courses in the UK for the week of 9th August? Thank you

  24. Any other ballet co dancers doing this next week ? It looks exciting !
  25. Hi again, my dd will be 9 next year therefore able to go residential on a course. I know that at this age they are limited to where they can go but I still have a few questions about the places she can go. She does ballet tap and modern and at the moment her passion is ballet - in the future she would like to dance with a professional ballet company. At this age do you think she should still try both ballet only courses and mixed dance courses? Would she get a real feel of where her passion lies or is she still too young to decide even after doing course? Or at this age would she gain regardless of whether is all ballet or mixed dance? Second question. Out of the courses, there are photo requirement ones and non- photo requirement ones. Are there any differences between these courses? (I've been looking at YBSS and OPES to choose between for next summer). Thank you xx
