Easter dance courses

Recommended Posts

I know it's a bit last minute but does anyone know of any Easter dance courses this year? Dd is intermediate level ballet and also does tap, modern and jazz. We're in London but she would be happy to do a residential one.

Tring have one which is residential . There's one in London called Dance Forward where you can book on a daily basis.

Hot House Dance in Hitchin is running a one day course focussing on 'The Solo' if this is of any interest to anyone, search for it on Facebook or I'm sure it's on the website :)

My dd went to the October Dance Forward event which was really good.  She is booked for the Easter one.  It has the extra bonus of working alongside some of the stars!

I've contacted Tring, it's full but have added dd's name to the waiting list.  Will be more organised next time!

Actually I've just remembered that dd did an Easter course last year with the London Ballet Company.  I'll check to see if they're doing one this year.

My dd wants to do nothing!!

My DD also isn't going anywhere, she will be happy just to be at home :-) I know she'll be doing her exercises every day though...

 

My DS is going to Tring again.

Dd is worried about doing the Central one now as we think the other attendees might all be associates or full time students and she isn't.  Not sure what to do, I'm sure she will benefit from the high standard of teaching but I don't want her to be out of her depth.

I really wouldn't worry. The school will put each child in an appropriate standard class. There will be plenty who aren't at full time school or associates. It's natural to have worries as we want these things to be a positive experience. If your daughter is planning on auditioning for full time schools at 16, it's also a very good way of her guaging her standard against others, so she knows what she has to do to stand a chance against the competition.

My dd did Central course a number of years ago. There was a mix of dancers from across the board, non vocational, associates and vocational.

Does anyone know if MIDAS are running anything over the Easter holidays? I did have a quick look on their site but it had nothing listed under their courses section but wasn't sure if the website is just not kept up to date or whether they actually have nothing coming up? Anyway I'm sure I remember one of their teachers being a member on here so thought I'd ask.

As a side note, it would be nice to have the option of a day long course instead of always being 3,4 or 5 days as not everyone can afford residential courses on every holiday!! So a day long course or workshop would be a great cheaper alternative for those on a budget but wanting to break up the holidays!!

Central are also running some day courses at Easter and at half term in June. They are listed on their spring/summer intensive page on the website.

Also Dance Forward are doing four days at the RAD centre, you can choose to do one-four days.

£40 Primaballerina - you pay via the website's 'online payment'.

Normally for a dance day at Central, there is an additional £5 payable on the day if a parent wishes to watch. That is detailed on their dance days tab, although this set of dance days appear in a different section of the website so it will probably be different. The normal dance days are only aged 12+ and worth keeping an eye out for.

My dd did Central two years ago, when she was 13, not an associate or a full time student. She had a fantastic time, there was a real mix of students and she didn't feel at all out of her depth- just challenged in a really positive way.

 

Anyone know how much the day of dance at central is for 11-13 year olds??

My dd went to this a few years ago, probably when she was about 12. From what I remember they did ballet, pointe, contemporary and musicality. I think a lot of the dancers there were approaching audition age. However, all age and level of the experience was valued and taken into account. I took the opportunity to watch, some of the girls were so talented, it was a joy to watch.
