Tring lower school dance audition date through!!!!

Recommended Posts

It all seems so real now!

DD's audition date for the dance course has arrived. 3rd November.

Now I am already feeling more stressed than I was before. Goodness knows how bad it will be on the actual audition day!

Audition dates aren't on their website yet.

I sent the form off weeks ago as it's DD's top choice!

Have sorted photos for others but that's as far as it has got. I do need to sort those other applications out.

I have just noticed that the dates are on the website now. It looks like for Y7 all the auditions are in a month time 3, 5, 6 & 7th of November. Does it mean that there will be no auditions later in January? Or will there be more dates later?

I think that probably means that's it. As they appear to have all audition dates set out for the year, as they did last year.

I've heard back from Tring and they said that they might have more auditions in January but they are not sure and advised to apply soon. So I've sent the forms yesterday and was impressed getting the confirmation email today with all the details. So my DD will be auditioning on Wed 5th Nov, in 4 weeks time exactly (scary!!!!) only today after class she will start to work on her solo with her teacher. I did my bit - I've booked a hotel near Tring. Anybody else will be there on 5th?

And a question: do DC need a costume for their solos? It says on the form that girls need just a plain leotard and tights but DD's teacher said that 2 years ago her other student had a proper tutu for her solo.

My dd just wore the audition leotard for lower school. She didn't mention anyone having anything else....

3 years ago my DD & DS did their solo's in their audition cloths just wore correct shoes to match solo Genre. Both were offered a place and funding final.XX

The bottom line is they are really just looking at the dancing potential, nothing else. And if it's for an MDS only the ballet.

 

I too felt really stressed about leotards, shoes, solos etc but it becomes clear as you go through the process that what they are looking at/for is very basic.

 

I think they probably decide within the first 10 minutes or less for lower school finals - before solos have even been reached.

Great, I agree that simple leotard is good enough, thanks for reassurance.

So, anybody else auditioning on 5th Nov?

Wishing everyone who is auditioning for Lower School at Tring this week the very best of luck!  

 

If it's anything like the auditions days we experienced last year you'll have a great time and hopefully hear some beautiful singing as the school prepare for the Christmas Carol concert - we loved hearing them and seeing the dance classes that were happening...and now this year DD is amongst them all!  It really doesn't seem like a whole year ago that we were auditioning.

 

Enjoy it all :)

Oh dear Happymum, your poor DD. Perhaps you can tell your DD to put all she feels for her pet into her dancing, all the happy times they shared and how special they were to each other?

Good luck for your DD tomorrow - maybe tell her that her pet would want her to do her very best and to dance in tribute to him/her?  Sad timing for you though x

Thanks for kind words. My DD can't stop crying :-( it was her pet, her dream come true Birtday present 2 years ago... Her name was Tutu...

Hope DD feels better tomorrow and will be able to dance well and smile on Wednesday at Tri g auditions.

I feel for you both, how distressing.My dd's hamster died on Xmas eve and it was hideous - she had auditions in January.

 

Our tactic was 'Smarties would want you to do your best at the audition.'

 

Good luck tomorrow xx
