  1. Audition disaster!

    We're doing Tring, Elmhurst, RBS and also YDA as she's an associate there. She's had a straight no for RBS JA's 2 years in a row, so not really thinking that's going to happen Tring was her favourite after attending the open day earlier this year, but now prefers Hammond (even before they said yes to her!). We've never visited Elmhurst so interested to see what that's like.

    Thank you all for your kind words and wishes, she is over the moon. She understands that there is still the funding audition to go, but I think she's just so made up to have got this far.

    I'm not sure if it's usual as she has never auditioned there before - the letter was dated the 15th so was sent the day after the audition. We were told it would be a week!
  4. Audition disaster!

    Thank you! Fingers crossed for some funding now ...
  5. Audition disaster!

    Well, I think all your positive stories and vibes worked as she's been offered a place!!
  6. Audition disaster!

    Thank you for sharing your stories, so brilliant so many have succeeded despite illness. One moment of light relief from yesterday that I keep giggling about: when asked by the physio if she'd ever had any serious injuries, DD replied that she'd sprained her little finger once... ๐Ÿ˜€ Not sure that's what the physio was expecting to hear!
  7. Audition disaster!

    Thank you all. She does have flat turnout ( let's hope she remembered to engage it properly!), all three splits, long legs, and her solo went without a hitch, so there are some pluses!
  8. Audition disaster!

    DD has just had her first Lower School audition today at Hammond. She woke up with a runny nose and sore throat, and even though she had a fantastic day, burst into tears after I collected her. She's distraught as she feels she messed up most of the dance audition. In the ballet she couldn't spot properly in turns as her nose was running and she fluffed some basic steps๐Ÿ˜”. In the modern section she froze and forgot a sequence of steps too. She's used to auditions, and has had both positive and negative outcomes, and taken the 'nos' well, but I think this is the first time she's felt she's not done her best. I've never seen her like this, she's heartbroken. The school and teachers seemed so lovely which made it worse. Any advice or words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thank you x

    Fingers crossed you hear soon - how stressful!

    DD is through to finals - fingers crossed there's others on here with good news?

    Definetly try again. Unfortunately there always has to be someone at an age disadvantage, my daughter is a late August baby so it's been a constant part of our lives as she is almost a year younger than some of her classmates! I think it's given her a bit of fighting spirit as she is always the youngest (and often the smallest!!). There will be some in the LCB auditions who won't have birthdays until as late as December too. Best of luck for the future.

    Good luck to everyone auditioning today. DD has been recalled so over the first hurdle.
  14. The Canterville Ghost 2018 by LCB

    Last year from a class of 30, DD was one of 7 recalled. In the recall class there were 30 nine year olds altogether. In the final, the class size was around 30 and a mixture of 9 and 10 year olds.

    Forgot to say - it says on the website that finals are the 19th Nov this year. It's a lovely experience, but still heart wrenching to see the girls whose numbers are not called out
