  1. Please ask questions about Upper School/6th Form auditions in this thread. Do also make use of the "search" facility (top right of the forum pages) in case your question has been asked before. :-) I apologise for not tagging all Upper Schools but tags are limited in number. If anyone has questions or info about auditions at schools not listed, please do post anyway. Thanks, Spanner

    Central one day intensive - 30th May

    Is anyone else going to the Central one day ballet intensive on the 30th May?
  4. Dd has eventually made her decision and accepted her offer from Central so we are now looking at accommodation. I believe a lot of students stay at Liberty Living. Are there any forum members thinking of Liberty House which seems the closest to the school? All require sharing. Any insights into how you find a like minded roomie? I am quite stressed at the prospect of sorting this out as it's so important to get it right!

    Central finals

    My dd has central finals at the weekend and we are hoping that this could be her big chance - but not expecting it to be !! Does anyone know anything about the call backs? I'm sure that last year some were called back for an interview or maybe an extra class or something? Does anyone know why this was? Was it the ones that they weren't sure about? Good luck to everyone else there this weekend!!

    Central Spring Course

    Hello! does anybody have any idea whether the Central spring course is first come first served or by selection? Just because you have to send photos in, I'm not sure. thank you! Feel free to add any other info about the course! I'm debating whether to do Central or Ballet Boost, as I can't make MBS dates this year 😪
  7. Just to say my dd went to the Central audition in Glasgow at the weekend. It was fairly relaxed and friendly. There were 16 female and 2 male dancers. There was a 1 1/2 hour ballet class (about Inter to Adv 1 level) followed by a basic contemporary class. (DD has done only a small amount of contemporary and found it fine.) They were numbered in height order smallest first. The girls wore leotards of various colours - some camisole, some cap sleeved. Mostly single colour leotards, not much lace etc. From what I saw most wore discreet/low key make-up but some wore none. Sorry can't remember what boys wore but must've been fairly standard as I didn't notice! They were told results would be out soon!! I am happy to answer any questions if I can.
  8. Has anyone received any information regarding the prelimary audition this Saturday 9th December at London we haven’t heard any info about times etc they are leaving it a bit late!
  9. Hi need some advice dd keen to audition for central & Elmhurst, feeling concerned that if offered a place how do they cope at 16 with cooking, cleaning etc as well as studies? Seems very young & surely at that age would need house parents for guidance, does anyone have dc at these schools? Thanks 🤔
  10. Well this looks exciting! Lovely new premises, to include accommodation, hoping to be ready for the start of the 2018/2019 academic year. http://www.standard.co.uk/goingout/arts/central-school-of-ballet-set-to-move-centre-stage-to-the-south-bank-a3494916.html

    Central School of Ballet Holiday Intensives

    Hi guys! Quick question... Does anybody have any experience of Central School of Ballet's holiday Intensives (especially the spring/Easter one)? 4 days at Central would cost about the same as 2 days of Dance Forward, so was wondering whether it was good quality. On that note, what about Dance Forward? Thank you
  12. I've just picked this up via Twitter. Good news for the students at Central. http://new-adventures.net/the-red-shoes/news/new-adventures-central-school-of-ballet-announce-student-associates-programme
  13. Deal all, I am looking for affordable accommodation for my 15 year old daughter in London during Central Summer School from 27.7.2014 till 9.8.2014. Can anybody please give us tips or advice? I am also happy for her to stay with a "dancing" family. Thank you.

  17. Hello, i have searched for info but cant find it so apologies if this post is in the wrong place. Does anyone have any experience of where the students live when they attend ENBS or Central. My DS wants to audition for both (almost out of time for central so need to get a move on!!) but i am concerned about living arrangements as he will only just be 16. Does anyone know anything. Thank you

    Central auditions

    it's time to fill in lots of forms again! After last year roller coaster of DD1's auditions, time to start again with DD2's... As we live abroad, DD2 has a choice between auditioning with the overseas contingent and do it all in one weekend or come to the UK at least twice to audition with the UK contingent. And we don't know what's best... Could some people with experience of each or both tell us more? Do you know if the auditions are made of small groups or else a big class? Are the classes smaller in one case or the other? Etc... All in all I'm after your experience and advice about these auditions... Thank you all!
  19. Third year auditions have happened. Do the students get informed if they have made it verbally or by letter. I presume if nothing has been said then they are successful???
  20. Central associates and Summer school Hi, does anyone have any experience of this? My DD is starting Prep 3 in September and also doing the summer school.
  21. My dd is attending for the first time. The programme arrived today and looks exciting and comprehensive. Just wondered if anyone else's dc is going? Edited for typo
  22. Hi all I'm new to the forum & to the upper school audition experience ???? & I just wondered what the general opinion was of the CSB audition process ? This was my dd's 4th audition & in comparison to the others, we were both really disappointed. I had been told about their not so great premises & facilities but of course they do have a good teaching reputation which is more important. The "welcome" was non-existent, no tour or talk to parents & no interaction whatsoever between the handful of current students there on the day & the auditionees. my dd said she felt she had performed well & that she had felt fairly strong in the class. She was very upbeat & smiley when she came out which is always a good sign as she wears her heart very much on her sleeve at all times However, a very abrupt & exceedingly poor template "No" arrived yesterday........2 days after our very expensive trip to London. We are honestly fine about the "No" but I just think they could have made much more of an effort in general. I also heard several accounts of a member of the panel who apparently watched certain auditionees with his head in his hands! .........how encouraging! ..........not to mention rude imo! Then again perhaps we are just naive in thinking the schools should make the same effort the auditionees & their parents do to meet the various school's audition requirements. TJ x

    Tring or Central?

    My DD wishes to apply for 6th form at both Tring and Central. Can anyone tell me which of these has a better reputation for classical training?
  24. I'm looking for some advice on this please. We were unable to attend the Central open day, and although a pack is coming, that will be in a little while. DD is 16 and living away from home for the first time - where do most of the Central students stay x

    Central Assessments

    Just wondering if anyone else has a DD in prep 3 at central ballet. DD missed the last week of term due to being abroad on a school trip. Just wondered if anything more definite was said about when the assessment results would be released. We are very anxious to know, as are lining up other associate auditions in case she hasn't made it to pre- seniors, but don't want to waste time and money on these if they are not needed, especially as one involves a whole day of school. Staff seemed quite vague about when results would be released when she was last there. Am pretty sure she will want to continue there if she is successful. It will be up or out this year, as she has already repeated. Prep 3 once. Thanks
