  1. Massive Congratulations to those with yeses and waitlists, and please please please if your DC has got a no, this doesn't have to be the end of their dreams. DD didn't ever make WL finals. She got an MA place for y9 and trains with an excellent after school pre-professional school (not a full time vocational school). She is in y11 now and has got finals for RBS upper as well as other top schools in Europe. She has worked very hard, never taken anything for granted and never given up. A no for year 7 is most definitely not the end.
  2. I Believe the plan for international candidates who can’t attend is there will be a review of videos and then another selection and those selected will do a zoom audition after Easter - this is for upper school.
  3. Yes emails came out on monday for UK applicants and some international applicants have had their results also, as they have posted on this topic.
  4. Yes that is what our email said. Congrats to your dd too!
  5. Hi Vivian grace is that enbs or royal? enbs email says there is a zoom option but royal haven’t said that. The email just said live audition on 27 March and if you can’t attend they wouldn’t discount you. Is that what your email said?
  6. Does anyone know how many girls are normally at finals for RBS upper? I say normally as this year is obviously anything but normal ...
  7. Hi VivianGrace The email said first day was audition class and second was medical and physio. Not sure how long the results will take. They don't have boarding but I think a lot of students rent shared accommodation and I think the school help them co-ordinate this. I would email the school and ask for more info on this. RBS has boarding yes. You can find a list of destinations of graduates from ENBS on their website. Good luck with it all - particular if you are travelling from abroad for the audition at the moment, is that possible with all the travel restrictions currently in place? The email said if you couldn't attend in person due to travel restrictions they will provide a zoom audition I think.
  8. Yes email arrived yesterday afternoon from ENBS.
  9. Are you saying then most if not all who go onto upper school are students who joined later eg y10?
  10. Also I saw on their website a few weeks ago that enbs are not going to require an initial video this year to select for prelims.
  11. Enbs cancelled their non residential intensive on Friday
  12. I got a pair from dancia by post at end of March - the brighton shop I think
  13. As finals are cancelled this year instead there is a virtual scholarship round for those invited to finals. RBS are one of the partner schools listed on the scholarship form finalists have to fill out as part of the virtual scholarship process. They haven't attended YAGP finals for a few years but it appears that was changing this year, until CV-19 prevented the finals taking place in New York. Yes, it seems to be the case DD Driver.
  14. Definitely would recommend Princess Grace in Monaco also. DD spent two weeks boarding there this summer, exceptional training.
  15. SA results for London are out, yes for DD. Well done to all who have a yes for associates and those who got SWL. xx
  16. Last year they were on the first Monday (i.e. next Monday) of the easter holidays - they posted them on the Friday, second class. Good luck to all waiting.
  17. Yda doesn’t have an upper school so there is the fact that a child doing associates with royal may be thinking of future vocational training connections and opportunities once they have graduated. On a personal level DD was offered full mds last year at one of the big vocational schools but decided to stay and train at Yda.
  18. Yda have Saturday morning classes for those who aren’t associates with royal. Most vocational schools have Saturday morning classes. If a child at Yda is an associate at royal they do those classes instead of Saturday morning classes with Yda not as well as. I think if a child auditions for royal associates and gets a place then they are deserving of that place, they will have been given the place on merit. Many things about the ballet world may not seem fair but ultimately it is a competitive world and if your child is training for a potential career in classical dance you have to get used to that and the fact that places at any vocational school or prestigious associate scheme are hard to come by.
  19. The year my dd did funding audition only people taken to physio were offered mds places initially. However some of these turned them down as they got offers elsewhere and they subsequently offered mds to people on the reserve list who hadn’t all seen physio. Good luck to all waiting.
  20. It sounds like what you are talking about is an associate class. So JAs is the junior associate class for royal ballet school, central have an associate scheme, as do Yda and Tring (their associate scheme is called CBA classical ballet academy). There is also London junior ballet on a Sunday at Artsed in Chiswick. Associate schemes will be more than just a class, they will be comprised of a ballet class but also some kind of body conditioning and learning some rep even. As such they tend to be 2/3 hours long. All of them will require your daughter to audition but royal is accepted to be the hardest to get into because of the numbers applying for that being so high. I don’t know what they all cost but they will all be reasonably expensive (isn’t everything in ballet!) If your daughter thinks she might be interested in ballet as more than a hobby getting into one of these schemes may be a good starting point. Good luck!
