  1. Creakingstool - It was a ballet class like RBS, yes, but the group seemed quite a bit bigger than RBS audition. Its all blurred a bit in my head now but i think it was about an hour. there was some just looking at them physically, but less so than with the RBS audition. there was preliminaries and then finals, with about a 3 week wait for the results of that if I remember rightly.
  2. Thank you. Clarifies the date.... doesn’t clarify the accommodation option as we had said we would do either. We still will, just need to know which, lol.
  3. The CAT open day was brilliant last year.’ They watched company class, miss Cara taught the children in a fantastic class and they had q&a with company dancers. It was a great experience. DD is a JA this year and very keen to join the CAT programme next year now shes old enough.
  4. Has anyone had a response as to which week/accommodation option their child has been offered?
  5. Yes for my DD, age 10. We applied for just one week and got the same block of dates and no indication of accommodation....!
  6. We both really enjoyed the insight days and it was red class not audition. No numbers and no panel observation etc. DD did it in one venue in y3 and got SWL for y4. She did it in London in y4, shes now a y5 JA at a different centre. We went to London to give her the experience of dancing in the RBS and it was really special to her. The class is welcoming and encouraging & we definitely thought it was a positive experience. .She absolutely loved it. As a now new JA mum, I also quite like that I had the experience too because we’ve not observed any classes since they started but I have an idea of what they’re doing.
  7. We love the summer school, DD has done the last three years
  8. Hi! DD is in the same class, I was sat behind you. And hello @Shelovesdance. I’ve also had people say to me they haven’t applied because their child would find it too boring and basic but my DD absolutely loves it. We knew Miss hatton already and love her as a teacher but DD also loved it in the RBS context. She can’t wait for Saturday again.
  9. Indeed, it’s very convenient, but unfortunately not. We are quite a distance away and there’s no bus option.
  10. Eurgh we have been grumbling about this too as we have northern and royal- and the parking app fee, haha. It’s so expensive.... I’m considering coming in by train in warmer months but for the middle of winter DD would be soaked/frozen by the time she got to class from the station.
  11. Two from DDs school heard about three weeks ago that they had places from reserves.
  12. The leotard we ordered new and came in two days. The tracksuit & skirt we bought from a friend. Don’t worry, it’s not yours being unusually slow x
  13. DD is going into y5 and “average height”, slim- to average body.’size 1 leotard arrived and fits well, aside from the too much fabric at the crotch. Age 9-11 tracksuit is generous but manageable. Bottoms are definitely baggy but she’s beyond thrilled. The pants are a bizarre specimen and we probably should have ordered the large but at nearly £7 the medium will do for this year! She is insanely excited with it.
  14. We were SWL last year and were told by DDs teacher that those offers come in via phonecall rather than email. It was the case for friends we know too. So one time Sylvia from RBS had to ring me about an insight day, she opened with “I’m really sorry this isn’t The Phonecall, but...”
