We are trying out and auditioning for different options for DD who will be Year 11 next year. Any ideas of the respective merits of Tring CBA, London Studio Centre, London Senior Ballet and

Stinson Academy? Bit of a decision progress and want to try to do the best. Thanks.

Hi Lilac,my daughter loved Tring CBA and felt that the tuition was very good.One drawback might be that it is bi weekly. Not a problem for us as she did this in addition to a Saturday associate course. Apologies but I can't advise on the others as we have no experience of them - I'm sure that others will help although Stinson Academy is probably a bit new for comment (tho it does look very exciting :)  )

Definitely take a look at the Stinson Stage Academy Associate programme, they offer a Musical Theatre and Classical Ballet Course.  It is very different to other programmes that we have experience of and they will accept 16+.  The team are all professionals who have a wealth of experience and the invited guest teachers compliment them brilliantly.


My daughter has been attending since they opened at Easter and her local dance teachers have commented on the change in her dancing.  The ballet that Alessia teaches is much more like the kind of ballet they would experience as part of a company and really stretches them to think for themselves and pushes them beyond in a firm but fair way.


Currently they run out of DanceWorks in London and are happy for prospective students to attend for a taster day which would also act as an audition, this costs around £28, alternatively I believe they are also offering auditions on particular days.  In September they are moving to Arts Educational School and the facilities will be excellent.


I really can't praise them enough but feel it is well worth a look for any aspiring performer/choreographer or anyone looking for a career in performing arts.
