With ref to a Y8 finals place, my DD was in this situation 3 years ago when she was one of six lucky enough to be invited to finals to compete for the one place available. I understood at that time that 5 had been invited the year before so it will be a very select few recalled. Hope that helps for those among us (myself included) who find the stats  useful!

 

Congrats to all so far. 

I can confirm dancefanatic, four years ago there were only four  invited to finals for year 8 WL, two  girls from the UK, a Spanish girl and a Swede. unfortunately none of them were selected.

Hopefully London 3 tomorrow? My DD is fine with it all, I think it’s us parents (def me) doing all the stressing!  So amazed by the resilience these kids have, and I’m in awe of their attitude to it all 😊

Hi - so did they just leave that year with an empty place, then? How strange.

I don’t think there is ever a set number of places in each year at RBS. My uderstanding is that they make space for someone they feel will suit their particular form of training, and each year has different numbers of students.

Evidenced by places being offered from Summer School and after the start of the school year.  Could it be that MDS numbers are limited but if you don’t need funding there are still places for those they want or are from overseas?

Much of it comes down to the number of beds available as most are boarders. So if the year 8 place isn't filled they may take another dancer from a different year.

They don’t mix dorms - if a space is available in Year 8 next year, it won’t be given to another year student based on beds. RBS is a very particular style of ballet and if they see someone they want, they find a space and add beds. If they don’t see what they want, they will leave empty spaces. Spare beds are often used for international exchange students and as was mentioned previously, students can be chosen and offered a place at any time.

So the simple fact is that there is always a chance of a place for the right person, so never give up on the dream.

Correct - last year, a place was offered from summer school to an international student and then another student in that year left part way through the year. It can be very fluid. I don’t think it’s down to MDS, just talent.

They audition throughout the world and invite students for trial from the big international competitions.

Best advice - do not try to overthink it and annalyse. We will never understand the full story. 

If it’s a no - now or at final then see it as a not yet, and if it’s a yes for finals, enjoy the experience.

That's fantastic news, richieN! Very well done! Do you mind if I ask, has your DD been going as an Associate? My DD was at the same prelim audition and said there were a couple of Associates who knew the teacher and one in particular really stood out - maybe it was your DD! Good luck!! :)

DD is at Centre pointe, which is a vocational college in Manchester. They do normal evening classes. I highly recommend them.

There wasn't a place, as no one was assessed out, they will make a place though if they want someone they feel has what they want.
