RAD boys only w/e London December


Recommended Posts

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.




The event will take place on Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 December 2012, at

Trinity Laban’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?
