amum/Cathy Posted October 7, 2012 Share Posted October 7, 2012 I thought I would post the details for this. The date has recently changed from the w/e of the 8th to the following w/e. Link to application form here. Boys do not have to be doing RAD ballet to take part. http://www.rad.org.uk/article_pink.asp?id=278&realCat=360 The event will take place on Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 December 2012, at Trinity Labanâ€™s purpose built studios in South East London. Trinity Laban, our Boys Only! partner for a third year running, are a Centre for Advanced Training (CAT), an intensive training programme for young people aged 13-18 who have exceptional talent and potential in dance. Part of a national initiative funded by the Department for Education, the CAT aims to identify young people with exceptional talent and potential and provide them with the highest level of dance training regardless of their personal circumstances. As part of the CAT, Trinity Laban is committed to delivering an extensive outreach programme in order to identify potential in younger children and guide them towards appropriate dance training to nurture their potential and help prepare them to audition for the CAT if they wish. As such they are delighted to partner with the Royal Academy of Dance to produce Boys Only! The weekend in a nutshell The weekend is suitable for boys aged 8-18 years, from beginners through to more experienced dancers. Workshops in three different dance styles: Ballet, Street and Contemporary dance will be taught by experienced and inspirational male teachers from the Royal Academy of Dance and Trinity Laban. Students will be divided into three groups and work with boys of a similar age and level of experience, taking classes in all three styles over the two days. The weekend finale will provide an opportunity for all the students to perform what they have learnt to a supportive audience of parents and guardians. Ds has never done the London one, and I'm not sure we can make it. Has anyone done the London one before, and was it at Laban? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
