Does anyone gave any details on this in terms of T&C’s? The course is open from age 9 but it also stipulates they must have passed Grade 4. Is that correct? Would a 9 year old have passed Grade 4 so young? Has anyone had a DC attend that hadn’t passed grade 4? My DC is currently on Grade 3 so nowhere near.

My dd took her grade 4 exam when she was 9 so there will be some. I guess if they’ve seen you at something like a pop up event and they like you they might let you go to the residential even if you haven’t reached grade 4.

Thank you. I have emailed them but hadnt heard back.

It’ll be because they can only cater for dancers of a similar standard - which is why they say G4 as a minimum, not that they expect the vast majority of even talented nine-year-olds to be at that standard. And remember, there will be children who don’t take any exams at all - mine didn’t, and anyway she wouldn’t have been anywhere near G4 at age nine. The G4 is just to give an idea of the standard that they feel able to work with.

I have just seen their instagram post just now it says from age 11, so they must have changed it this year. The scholarships are from Year 7 so it looks like she will miss out again. She has waiting to be old enough to attend but its not meant to be. We will just have to hope there are pop ups she can attend. She wants to attend a residential summer school and this one is close to where we live and has a great reputation.

If you are in the North, then try Moorlands Ballet in Clitheroe...  my dd did her first residential there to help her decided if she wanted to go to vocational school. She loved their course.

Another vote for Moorland. Excellent teaching and it’s a very full week of dancing. The performance at the end was incredible. It is also selective but they do take younger students.

Thank you. DD’s friend attended Moorlands this summer and had a great time. It is definitely an option. We like the look of Malvern too but its a bit further away for us. Harrogate is only 1 hour so ideal. I am sure once she has done it, further afield wont be as daunting.

When you apply, a confirmation page comes up. Followed later by an email thanking you for your application and that you'll hear back after the closing date. Good luck! 

Hi. I got the confirmation page but no email. I have emailed and they have confirmed they received the application.
