Re: Dance question

I've had loads of students who have 'made it' as straight actors without any dance training whatsoever. MT is a totally different kettle of fish. If he hates dance, he would be better off learning accents, reading plays and enjoying live theatre so he can get as many ideas for improv as poss. Best o...

Re: KM Casting 11-16 year olds

Crikey! It’s finding the time to learn the script we struggled with! What with that and finding a song he can play and sing to with his ever lowering voice it got a bit tricky! Luckily we had no singing to do. :D I'm sure if it had been snowing where we are she'd much rather go sledging too so good...

Re: KM Casting 11-16 year olds

Our self tape was done all in one take in 15mins in the midst of the most manic weekend ever, so I'm really not too hopeful either!!! :?

Re: Are we going in the right track

My DD is a similar age and I have the same worries as she is so keen on doing MT in the future-she has been involved in literally show after show from the age of 6 and does 12 hours dance/gymnastics a week but recently I have really been encouraging her to just have fun, chill out and enjoy being a ...

Re: NYT

One of my students has got into one of the projects that starts 2 weeks before she starts her A level exams and she is going to have to leave school early and take her exams at another centre if she wants to take part fitting in rehearsals around her exams which seems crazy! It does seem odd that th...

Re: Dance confusion - please help!

I'm not really sure about what grades he needs (if any) but I have students who have got into Bird, Central, Laban and the MTA and they have all done A levels with a smaller BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Performing Arts( equivalent to 1 A level.) They didn't do the full BTEC worth 3 A levels and they g...

Re: Laine Theatre Arts

This course looks to be tailored towards those already working in MT who want to gain a degree level qualification- it works around professional hours so is very different to the other full time courses. A great idea for those needing a degree who have obtained a diploma so far too.

Re: University offer for Musical Theatre

No, they can't just take an offer away. It's good that you have all the evidence there though I'm sure they will have to honour the first offer. Good luck with it all, though I think all this would put me off the uni entirely no matter what course was offered! Best of luck.

Re: University offer for Musical Theatre

Something similar happened to one of my students- they were offered a place for a different course- sounds like a very simular course to the one your daughter was offered, but I don't think they had been told anything different through ucas first. She wasn't that bothered and as she'd gone for the t...

Re: Ideas needed for audition song

Mr cellophane from Chicago? Not too technical- definitely one you could speak sing if he really struggles plus he could really act it which is probably what they most care about. Possibly too well known though I'm not sure it's really overdone.

Re: Changing the colour of character shoe elastic - tricks?

We've used various types of black tape to cover it- seemed to work fine but probably quite temporary!

Re: Stage School

Just watched 15 mins of it as that's all I could stand. One of the strangest things I've ever seen! Channel 4 I think. Definitely not my cup of tea!

Re: Acting or Musical Theatre?

Thanks very much for your help pg and Caroline A-C. That is really helpful. I'm thankful we still have years before making any decisions but it looks like we better start saving now!!! Guess there are no guarantees with any career choice in any case.
