    Tips for Tring dance prelims

    For any parents hanging out while auditions are taking place. Really recommend Jack and Alice's just at the bottom of the drive.

    Dance School of Scotland and Scottish Ballet associate scheme

    Applications are high for both courses and places are limited. Not sure of exact stats but i think about 300 applicants for mids places with Scottish Ballet last year. So I would go for both initially and see where it takes you.

    Audition leotards/What to wear

    A leotard that is comfortable and doesn't encourage lots of fidgeting. If getting something new try wearing it for a class first to see how it feels on.

    Ballet newbie - late-starters and associates

    There are quite a range of abilities in the audition. Everything is well explained and yes it takes the form of a class. Enjoy it and show the panel how much you love dancing.

    Ballet newbie - late-starters and associates

    Competition for mids places is high as only 5 centres offer mids where junior classes are offered in 8 centres.

    Any advice for a newbie?

    Most of the children seem to love the audition class and come out smiling and excited so a lovely experience if you just treat it as a fun day out. As to whether or not a place will be offered, it is difficult to guess but as others have said a no is really a not yet and try not to be put off if it is what you dream of.

    RBS Junior Associates 2018

    No idea exactly how they choose from all the wonderful dancers that apply but an obvious love of dance is important at junior level.

    JA Auditions... flexibility

    The numbers are very difficult to work out and i got a similar answer when i asked how many places there are. They take who they want. There must be a maximum number depending on the size of the studio. I didn't realise at the start of this journey that it is not a whole new intake each year as some younger ones already have places for the following year making the chances of a place even smaller.

    Split sole or full sole shoes for Junior associate auditions ??

    I agree they look nice but some of the RBS teachers are very particular about shoes having single elastic.
