Im afraid that if you are not resident in the UK she wouldn’t be eligible for a DaDa so you need to look at schools that offer school scholarships.  

We don’t live in the U.K. but part of GB. Sadly many scholarships are for English pupils only. Which I learnt on my detailed quest in obtaining details on fees charged. Elmhurst and ENBS were just two.  🙁Challenging as so many schools bury their fees  within their own website.

Auditioning is not cheap, but then nor is full-time training.  Then if you manage to get through your training, auditioning for company contracts can be a horrendously expensive business, once you factor in flights and accommodation costs for what can sometimes be a 10 minute audition.   

 

I take it you don't have any full-time upper schools in your home country? Some schools hold auditions abroad; ENBS included. 

ENBS confuse many applicants. Their website quotes that they offer funding to enable pupils worldwide to seek training at their school. In reality their funding is by way of a DaDa. Which excludes prospective pupils who live outside the  U.K./EU residents. I believe true ‘overseas’ pupils receive funding from their own countries. Thus avoiding the limited funding available.

Yes she is a Mid Associate so we will get some feedback, Year 8 and above are very hard years as there are very few spaces which we knew. Her skin is defiantly getting thinker, not a tear!!!!

It was had to work out but approx between 7-10 per age group, so not many at all!

Sorry to hear that AN but isn't she great for taking it so well. 

 

Good luck to everyone still waiting - I still clearly remember our letter turning up for my son all these years on (yes, it was before they started doing emails!) and the excitement that followed. Been on the end of a "no" letter too with my daughter who was really upset (for about 15 minutes then decided to be a vet!!).

 

We've also been on the other end of the "other" letter after assessments in year 9 (I'm always here for anyone who goes through the same) followed by delight at getting into Elmhurst, so have experienced highs and lows over several years. 

 

Thinking of you all, whatever stage you're at.

Good luck and safe travels to everyone going to Richmond for White lodge finals tomorrow. The snow must be the last thing you need to add to the stress! Hope you all get there ok.

Good Luck to all those attending upcoming finals. 

 

My eldest DD woke up to her final audition with ankle deep snow having fallen overnight (a few years back) much to everyones shock and surprise. 

 

We slipped and slid our way to the venue, with totally inappropriate footwear and were congraulated upon by the teachers for making the effort as "nothing stops a dancer". Unlike an Academic student seeking University place according to the staff. That little conversation certainly broke the ice (excuse the pun). The day went brilliantly and she secured her place. 

 

So boys and girls don't be put off by a little thing called snow/ice and freezing conditions, allow extra time for your journey, wrap up warm and then show them what you are made of. :wub:

Wow, a lot of success it would appear. Do we have the Mum (or Dad) of the next Frankie Hayward or Yasmine Naghdi among us, I wonder?!

Sorry for your DS, well done for your Elmhurst Final. My dd was so upset not getting Elmhurst finals year 8.

We got WL finals, but a no result, so her Tring finals has given her a much needed boost. Good luck for your DS next week, go smash it!

Thank you AuntieNora, it's all very strange I think each school must look for different quantities each year. Good luck with your DD

It is an eye opener isn't it?  My DD will be at Elmhurst finals next week too, also for year 10 entry, so see you there!  The nerves are really kicking in now.

We got an offer of a place so very exciting news indeed, but no funding audition sadly so she ticks some boxes but not quite enough I guess. Unfortunately we can't accept - our DD knew the score so has been ok with this... She's even more keen to try again next year though and wrote down a massive stretching/exercise plan that she intends to do daily.

It’s great news to get an offer, it shows she’s got what it takes! Keep going dd! If it doesn’t happen for us this year, we will keep trying too, unfortunately we are not in the position to accept without funding either, which dd understands, unless we have that lotto win!
