Tring 6th form auditions (2014 entry)

261 posts in this topic

Hi mum in a spin

We were there on the 21st , I thought the chappie that spoke 1st in the meeting said they wouldn't be sending out results until all dance auditions had finished. If this is the case I believe they have the 4 th yr auditions on Tuesday . I think if this is the case then we should receive the dreaded letters by the end of nxt wk or early part of the 2nd week in February . :)

My dd was there yesterday and we got told that it was the last day for the dance auditions and letters would not be sent out till the end of the second week in feb

He did say that, and I thought that very fair. Although when I was waiting for DD at the end (she is ALWAYS the last one out), the ballet mistress came and spoke to a family who had travelled over from Poland. She said how well their DD had done and they would love to have her, she needed to perform more but they will definitely be seeing her again. I was not eavesdropping, they were standing right by me and I couldn't help but hear. Perhaps they made an exception because they had travelled so far. Anyway, DD had a lovely day and we will hear around mid Feb like everyone else  ;)

Dd really enjoyed the audition yesterday too and was very impressed with the school.

We were told we could get a waiting letter as they had lots of auditioning to do.  The last audition for our group is the 6th Feb so maybe they are just holding out for that.  It has been a long three weeks for DD but hopefully worth the wait!

OK, it sounds as though there is still a long wait ahead of us, then! i wonder why it takes them so long when they have seen everyone and must have made some sort of decisions as they go!!

 

Pas de Chat - did your dd audition for 6th form? I wonder if perhaps the system is slightly different for lower school as the auditions are spread over such a long period of time whereas 6th form auditions have been back to back!

 

How nice for the Polish girl to have been given instant feedback!!

Yes we not 6th Form but Junior Dance.   We thought we might have heard by now too as DD auditioned on the 13th!  On the flip side the nice thing about not knowing is that you are still in the game! :)

Not expecting anything but a No as my dd isn't really ballet more jazz and she was very disappointed on the time they spent on the jazz section of the audition and thought they were definitely looking for more classical dancers than anything else, although if you are lucky to get a place you can go down the jazz route in year 2!

This thread was started to discuss 6th form auditions so To save too much confusion, can I respectfully ask that comments about lower school are kept to one of the lower school threads - or maybe start one just for Tring lower school

Hi I wonder if anyone would possibly be able to tell me what the funding audition is like ?

And also what's expected from you eg another solo etc ?

Thanks in advance

Ooh, Mad House, does that mean that you have had good news or are you just planning ahead? Fingers crossed!!

 

I really cannot be sure but I don't think that they have to do another solo. I have an idea that it is just a ballet class and then some are invited to see the physio. Can any one add anything to that?

 

Surely it must be soon now if the letters are not out or on their way already.

Hi Mad house. DD did the funding audition last year.

 

They had to do a ballet class and then they learnt a jazz routine in class. After that some were selected for a physio examination.

 

DD thought is was quite relaxed and she enjoyed the whole experience, even the physio was charming and chatty.

 

Hope this helps. Good luck to you all and may the wait be mercifully short!

Oh, OK Mad House, I was hoping that the letters were coming out!

 

I hope we don't ahve long to wait either as it is only 2 weeks til the finals now and would need to make arrangements if dd is lucky enough to get that far. Still not sure she could go even with a dada but taking it one step at a time!

Does anyone have an estimate of how many they looked at, how many are usually asked to go to he final nd how many places and DaDas might be available for the dance course? Does everyone offered a place get invited to the final at 6th form level?

We were there in the morning of the 21st - it seems like months ago now. Hope the letters are out before the weekend - I'll be grey by the end of this process!!!

Hi there, all new to this!!! Dd auditioned for drama on the 17th and then dance on the 30th, and we still haven't heard anything for dance yet alone drama. DD said she'd talked to a girl at her drama audition and they said the results would be posted this week or next? Bit of a poor show as at the drama one we weren't told anything about results and the principal wasn't even there! I'm slightly panicking as it's dd's birthday on Monday and we are away, I don't want her elder sister ringing with bad news!! :/
