    National Youth Ballet Final Auditions 2018

    Hi peanut68 This year for NYB has rolled from summer school onto The Cresent and then finishing with the London Gala on the Sunday evening I think personally it works better as we know that we need to block out those two weeks, it used to go over three weeks so fitting everything around it was a pain. Unfortunately there is no option for the children to stay after the summer school, so parents book hotels nearby when at The Crescent, before the summer school was held in Tring then performances were in Tunbridge Wells or Guildford, then followed by the Gala at the beginning of September. My dd has been fortunate to have been involved with NYB for many years and loves it, she has made lots of friends, the performances are of a high standard, the costs involved are a lot but it’s definitely worth it! If you can come up and watch one of the performances, feel free to pm me if you want any further info 😊

    National Youth Ballet auditions - main company

    Just had the following email 😊 Dear All, Thank you so much for auditioning for the NYB this season. We really hope you enjoyed your audition. We just wanted to let you know that you will hear the outcome of your audition by Friday 16th March 2018, by email from info@nyb.org.uk. It is a good idea to add this email to your contacts to help this email arrive in your inbox rather than into your junk/spam folders. Have a good weekend. Kind regards, Katie NYB Team
  6. Hi Bluelou They are really quick at getting back to you, I’ve booked dd onto the 2nd week she will be 15 in March, the only thing I was surprised at when completing the online application form it doesn’t ask for the current dance examation/level , but did read this on the website students should be working at approximately Advanced Foundation level, or above, in ballet to benefit fully from the course. On the first day teaching staff will observe students as they participate in classes and stream them into groups appropriate to their level. The purpose of this is to ensure everyone gets the most out of the course and is taking part in activities appropriate for their experience.
  7. Hi two left feet I’ve pm you 😊

    Questions about Upper School auditions

    Hi Balletbean, DD is very much wanting to stay on the classical ballet route, so ENBS will be on our list, but it’s going to be a very long and hard journey, trying to gather as much information on courses/pastoral care and funding. How about your dd, is she doing auditions now?

    Questions about Upper School auditions

    My dd attended the ENBS audition workshop in Jan, we found it very useful as she’s a yr10 vocational student so getting as much info as possible where we can, they told us the reason behind them now asking for dvd audition application is that they have more time to look at each applicant, last year they had over 500 applications.
  10. Hi, I would be grateful for any feedback on the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland BA Modern Ballet Course and if they run a Ballet Summer School Course (re the summer course ideally what ballet level this would be aimed at). Doing a bit of research for dd auditioning in 2019. Thanks in advance 😊
