Re: Panto rehershals with Jordan Productions

Hi. My dd did a panto with Jordan productions a few years back. They were a great company to work with, very caring to their juveniles. If I remember correctly the rehearsal period was quite intense. Two weeks solid after school and weekends just before opening. I think you’ll find the company very ...

Re: Urdang Recall

My ds is at Urdang in his 2nd year. In the first year everyone does the about the same amount of dance classes although streamed and it is full on, usually 2 or 3 95min classes a day along with various singing and acting classes. The standard is incredibly high (I watched a few in house videos) watc...

Re: What do people mean by "scholarships" for performing arts courses?

May be worth being honest too, my ds was asked at his audition if he could afford full fees, he said no - and was offered a scholarship :D (could have backfired though)

Re: Passing the time

If you like exploring google "London for free" gives you loads of interesting options, London Museum, British Museum, Docklands Museum are all free, plus the more popular ones. Brick Lane, Camden Market are great for browsing. I have a English Heritage pass and love wondering round the gardens. Get ...

Re: Full time training 11-16... Italia Conti, Sylvia Young

My dd is at full time PA school, she was really sporty, very academic, offered 2 scholarships elsewhere plus place in a grammar school but turned them down and loves it 100%. My ds had the same opportunity but didn't take it and regrets it a little now. Pm me if you've any questions. A hard decision!

Re: Auditioning for 2017

Thank you so much for bringing this point up, so true we couldn't apply for a DADA for my ds as no point as our income was going onto the limit but they don't take our outgoings into account - we have two children going into performing arts,and we haven't even started paying our mortgage yet as our ...

Re: Sheet music presentation

You could always be super prepared and photocopy them and do both then ask the pianist which one they would prefer, I'm guessing they would appreciate that ;)

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

Hi
Done this a few times, pop to hobbycraft or similar and buy black elastic the same width or slightly wider and sew it on top of the pink elastic, just a simple running stitch (not too tight) usually does the trick!

Re: Stage School

I didn't watch it myself but like others have seen the very unfavourable coverage it's received from other who did. My DD is auditioning for Sept 17 entry this year and it was on her list to view/audition but she won't be viewing/auditioning now - what a shame, if they had made a real programme/doc...
