Summer schools 2020 (will any run)?

DS had a place on YBS summer school this year. He's done a few masterclasses with them and we'd hoped there would be something separate to the RBS offering. Thankfully he's now doing Central's online summer school and a set of weekly classes with Sander Blommaert so all is not lost!

I must of dreamt it😂 

I had it in my head that you booked for week 1 today and then week 2 next week and so on... 

Sorry! xx

 

If I recall correctly the weekly booking was for the Studio Masterclass

I;d check on the page, but .. 🙂

RBS emails out re: online summer school options.... more info early July. Interesting that no mention about costs of the various options yet! Hmmm....But seems pretty much open to all....some smaller groups with visuals & corrections possible (first cone first serve....bet it’ll be like trying to buy top concert tickets with the whole world of ballet parents all logging on at same time minute they are open to book 🤣) but most sessions will be limitless numbers of attendees so no visuals for corrections etc of students....

Bet this will become an annual money spinner event in addition to traditional audition entry intensives!! 
Have heard that (individual?) current RBS pupil/s getting ‘invited to join masterclasses for ‘free’ which goes against what the webpage says - no concessions/funding - but who knows what’s genuine feedback? 
I feel sad for those who had gained places at intensives & feel that rather than making this an open to all money maker they should have honoured the success of those pupils & provided aN exclusive course just for them (my DC wouldn’t be amongst them btw, just feel those who succeeded should be rewarded!) 

My dd had a place at RBS for the cancelled intensives and we are queuing with everyone. All in the same boat! 😁

I thought I read this morning that the week by week booking was for the Private Group Classes - but after an hour of trying and one successful logon only to find that just the teacher training webinars had a "book now" button and then that crashed me out I am taking a break ;)

A very  welcome correction, thank you 😉 

 

Is anyone aware if the intensive will be organised, like the on-site intensives, on a weekly basis? (we have a junior DD)

 

I expected their site wouldn;t cope with the demand tbh.I do wish them a more successful delivery of the intensive.

We cannot get on either. If you have a Dd or Ds yr9 or above then you can take class with Natalia Osipova or Camille Bracher as an alternative. Camille actually coaches yr 5 and over. These are organised by a lady called ‘Devoted to dance’ on Instagram. We have done a few of these and Dds have enjoyed

My DD (who's coming to the end of y4) has been doing these classes and really enjoyed them. Stretches her at times but at least she can see the competition!

My Year 4 student has been doing Camille's classes too. Again, she finds them challenging, but that's good for her, and it's excellent preparation for the Autumn's auditions for associate programmes too.

 

Anyone with children aged 14 and above should look into Sander Blommaert's SS. It is EXCELLENT.

Exactly! It's been a really good lesson to see outside of her small dance school bubble.
