  1. It's a no for us this time (yr 5, Birmingham) 😔 I'm a bit gutted, as last year my DD was on SWL for JA and got a place at Elmhurst Young Dancers. But this year I guess RBS think she has less potential than last year? Her video wasn't the greatest, so I'm not totally surprised.... She's OK with it and loves her classes at Elmhurst. So we'll put this behind us and try again next year when 🤞🏼 auditions will be in person again! Very well done to all those that were offered places this year, congratulations to you all 🎉💕🩰
  2. @Dancedreamerit could be a definite yes, you just can't tell! My DD only had a few seconds viewed last year and was offered SWL in a year when hardly anyone was given real places. And even a no this year might turn into a yes next year. Good luck 🍀
  3. They've had views now too 🙂 So hopefully there aren't many left now and we'll hear soon!
  4. I wish I knew what all of this meant! We're applying for the same group. All videos watched thoroughly once, then each watched again for just a few seconds last week 🤔 I hope we find out soon!
  5. I know people who haven't had any views too. I suspect that different centres are being looked at by different people? Our friends with no views are Bath. Or perhaps in in the order videos were submitted? They were near the original deadline for submission.....
  6. They really do!!! I've given up trying to second guess 🙃 Which year group and location have you applied for? Ours is yr5 Birmingham. Good luck!
  7. It looks like we had a really brief 2nd view of each video yesterday, but analytics haven't loaded properly for those yet. Friends of ours still haven't had a single view yet, so I wonder if it will still be a while before results are announced?
  8. @SarahG1881 my DD friends haven't had views yet.....
  9. I think everyone is different and RBS seem to look at potential more than current ability? My DD has been dancing since age 2.5 and takes several classes a week. But don't let this put you off, as it means nothing and I have no idea how she'll fare this year! I think they look at physique, flexibility, musicality, potential and who knows what else??!! Good luck to your daughter x
  10. Absolutely! You're not alone, I have no idea 😬 It literally could mean anything!!! X
  11. That's interesting, as we're both Birmingham yr5? I wonder if they have had the same judge looking at them? X
  12. We've now had views on all three videos, they were watched on Thursday afternoon. 12 mins, 10 mins and 14 mins respectively. I don't know if its good or bad that they took so long to make their minds up?! 🤔
  13. Same. No views here either. I'm also pretty sure there haven't been views for Bath yr5 as well. It must be taking them ages to watch all the videos individually like this.......as opposed to typical years where there are several applicants in each audition group.
  14. That's actually already happening, as her local teacher is very much from the RB background, so a few positions/postures clash between her and the YD teacher. My DD accepts this and tries to remember whose class she's in 😂
  15. Thank you for all your replies, they are reassuring! We can just about fit it all in around our son as well, who is a competitive swimmer, so also requires a taxi service 😂 (though personally, I long for school holidays for a rest!!) Both children are happy and I'd never thought of this as a potential problem until this weekend. I'm glad you all think a 2nd associate scheme (should she ever be accepted) is OK. I also thought it would be a good experience for her, and she could enter any future auditions having had her eyes opened to what might be available. X
  16. Hi. Does anyone here have children that attend weekend classes at more than one vocational school? Is it possible? Would you recommend? The reason I ask is that my DD is an Elmhurst YD. She got SWL for Birmingham JA last year. We were hoping if she got accepted this year (I know this is far from guaranteed!) that she could do both YD and JA. But this weekend I heard via another parent that they were told not to apply for both as it was too much? They had been told to choose one school only. They were also surprised at the number of classes that our girls attend. My DD does 2x ballet, 1x modern, 1x competition/Performers. Her friends do this plus 1x tap. Can I have others opinions and experiences please? My DD teacher recommended all these and my DD is happy Thanks
  17. Still no views for us yet (yr5 Birmingham). Hoping we don't have to wait too much longer! It's good to hear the videos are being watched thoroughly this year 🙂
  18. Good luck 🍀 It's far away for us too, we live near Bristol!! But worth the trip, in our opinion x
  19. Thank you! She's already at Elmhurst and loves it, so we turned down JEP as the times clashed. I just hope that doesn't count against her this year, as there was a tick on the application for JA if you were a current JE dancer 😕 Is your DD doing JEP?
  20. Congrats! Fingers crossed for you this year 🙂 My DD is also entering year 5, but for Birmingham.
