Northern Ballet (Leeds) - associates auditions

Recommended Posts

Hi

Im new here so not sure where to post! I have a daughter who is auditioning for associates at Northern Ballet Leeds, I have had confirmation they have received her cheque and form, I also have a younger daughter who would like to audition but her form was sent later. We haven’t heard anything back from them so I’m worrying they haven’t received it and the closing date was yesterday. So my question is , has anyone else sent the form and payment but not heard anything back yet?!

Hi there,

 

I sent off my daughter’s form last week and haven’t heard back yet. I was going to wait until next week to give them a call and ask. 

 

Can i ask, did you hear back via email or letter?

We had an email yesterday saying we’d hear with an audition time in the next few days.

Both my daughters applied and I only got email confirmation to say they’d received the application for one of them, however both cheques were processed by my bank. 

I also called NB to check both applications had been received and they had.

Thank you, sorry for the late reply! I heard back via e mail and then this evening was given a time but no name! I emailed to explain I had two daughters and they replied quickly with times for each of them. Good luck to you both , exciting but nerve wracking!

Best of luck for the auditions. My DC is with Northern Ballet and the programme is fantastic! The teachers are great and they are all really friendly when dealing with queries via email or phone. We love it there.

Thank you, the lovely lady sent me another e mail this morning confirming the two separate times for my daughters. My eldest daughter really enjoyed the open day so fingers crossed it goes well!

Good luck for the auditions! DS goes into his 5th and final year in the associate's in September and he loves it there. The training and studios are first class.

She was absolutely terrified of all the super-flexible stretching going on in the waiting room! BUT, she came out of the audition saying it was brilliant! 

 

Its her her first experience of an audition and I think she’s hooked!

Learning to ignore the competitive stretching is an important part of audition prep!

After watching the ‘comedy’ audition stereotypes video on here a few weeks ago, I had a chuckle to myself!

My daughter was in the 3pm audition too ( my youngest!) first audition as she’s only 8 years old, she said it was a fabulous class and enjoyed herself so that’s all that matters , it’s going to be a long week though😬

Nothing through yet for the Juniors. I’ll try and get on with some work (whilst refreshing my email inbox more often than strictly necessary!)

Hi,

 

My 8 year old also has a recall! Heard nothing yet about my older daughter either, so I assume they’re sending emails out in age order maybe?

That’s great news! I’m just worrying ( and hopefully overthinking it) but someone earlier in the post said their DS had a recall for intermediate, so I’m thinking are they doing the yes pile first 😂
