    I may email tomorrow morning - it may prompt a response of some description though I m sure if it was a yes we d have heard. In my education world the expectation of responding by our own stated deadline is faily indicative of reliability /service. So I m not impressed really. Hey ho... We shall endeavor to attend an audition at some point in the coming years. Good luck to all those in the new production next week x

    Yes I ve double checked email inbox and spam..I only use a particular email address for dance only stuff so things are easy to find. More annoyed with lack of reply than getting a no.

    We have both given up dd said this evening she gathers it's a no as they didnt email when they said they would. If I get the courtesy of an email that would be good but as cinderella starts next week I m guessing this Fri/sat/sun will be show prep stuff.

    Still nothing. Really irritating when people dont keep to their own deadlines. Not a problem waiting a week but they shouldnt say day after! We have assumed its a no. But looking forward to watching hopefully

    We didnt expect to be able to audition at all so the dvd option was a bonus.

    Sorry Tatasmum we didnt attend and waiting to hear result. Hopefully Bluebird might know
  14. Hi. My dd was istd and they did a grade in each subject each year - getting distinctions in exams so dd must have been fully prepared. We have moved to an idta school and dd now grade 5 for all So this will be taken after 12-18 month. ( Inc time to go over difference in syllabus/steps for below grades for free work part of exam) I think generally as the grades get higher they take slightly longer but at grade 3/4 I d have said a year. If you wanted to move you could ask the new dance school to assess her to put her in an appropriate class - its ok to miss a grade if they say so. I m not sure about doing exam on own steam sorry. It does sound odd mixing with grade below
