I have 2 students auditioning this evening. One very determined senior who narrowly missed out on the scholarship last time! 

 

Good luck to your DD hope the result comes through quickly for you!

Good luck to them both. 

My dd was really hoping to participate in the class - do you have any juniors attending? If so, could you share a few of the things they Do?

I have one junior going this evening so will check in with her later this evening and let you know. If I remember rightly from last time the entire class was in the centre and there is a set step they had to demonstrate for the scholarship bit, I remember a Waltz definitely being mentioned.

My Junior has just been in touch- she has a place! 

 

Audition comprised of Ports de Bras, pirouettes, plies and leaps amongst other things!

Does anyone know how many audition for each section? Nottingham auditions are huge. Over 170 for Juniors.

Wow that is a lot! There were 52 seniors last night - but I’m sure the amount they take depends on the venue. Buxton doesn’t have a very big stage so I’m sure I remember being told previously that the cast is smaller at Buxton than our local venue in Stoke.

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

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 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.

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.

Hi Dancertaxi

 

I can understand your frustration 😟

Why don't you email Miss Lewis and ask when you might hear  - I am sure she must understand that your DD is finding the wait difficult .

(That said I emailed Miss Lewis this evening and have received a reply so you may still hear tonight 😀)

Really hoping it's good news !

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
