So, if you had a choice to go to John Cranko or Ellison to study, which would you choose?

John Cranko school if the funds were available. There are so many more opportunities that can come from that school.

I’d pick John Cranko. They have an entrance examination. I’m not sure how many time they have the examination annually. My daughter took it last Saturday and was accepted. She’ll start her class in September. As far as I know, her classes are on Monday to Saturday. They have boarding but she won’t be in there since we’re currently live in Stuttgart.

What do you exactly think about Vienna? My daughter should go there in september, is it a very good Academy? She is 13, I don’t want to let her go if it is not good……

My daughter got accepted to John Cranko ballet through an entrance examination this year. She’s set to start in September. From what I understood, it’ll be intense program. They informed us that it’ll be 6 days a week practice (Mon-Sat) starting in September for her age group (11 years old). This is her dream to attend John Cranko ballet school.
