    When to go for associates?

    There is a girl at my daughters dance school who got a place on the Northern CAT. She had to give up her lessons at the school and she does have to go over to Leeds during the week as well as on a Saturday. I would say there's more demand on parents to get them over there. Which is why when it comes to it we are going vocational rather than CAT.

    Your daughter sounds exactly like my daughter! She was 8 (Year 3) when she auditioned for RBS JAs, and grade 2 and was just about to start at her dance schools associates too - she has just finished her first year with the RBS JAs as a Year 4, and has loved it. She also just auditioned for the Cecchetti Associates and got a place on that too for September start - I think doing the JAs gave her more confidence with the audition as she does get nervous - but was able to come out of it and say it was easy and could do everything in the audition. So in my opinion doing the JAs has helped her massively - and that's only after one year!

    My DD auditioned for the Northern Associates last Sunday and we got our acceptance letter on Friday, so we found out really quick. My DD really enjoyed the class and can't wait to learn some new things. They are looking for potential and always known that children sometimes freeze in audition classes. Good luck 🤞

    RBS Junior Associates 2018

    My DD was on SWL last year. We got a phone call a few days later from Sylvia Hubbard to say they had a place for her It's all to do with who accepts the places as people sometimes audition for more than one scheme etc.
