  1. Hi all, Has anyone been offered a place off the waiting list for Central yet? I'm interested to know if there has been any movement. In fact, does anyone know anything about the timeline? When do prospective students reply to their offers? Also, does anyone have any idea if there are 100 or 20 on the waiting list, its hard to gauge if moving from on the wait list is a realistic option or a nice pipe dream..... P.S. I must say that I really appreciate being a member this forum, it seems to me that people genuinely want to help each other and that is precious. Than
  2. I honestly dont know! In our experience this year, it is clear some schools are using their own standard "no" & "waiting list letters." Including the wrong entry year is a give away. I'm pretty confident that there are standard "yes letters" in use too (gold ticket is coming to mind ðŸĪĢ). I guess it would be impractical and inefficient not to use a standard approach if you're replying to hundreds of applications. My heart feels sure that there may be a few people who get a more tailored "please try again letter" ðŸĪž although my head is not so sure if this is necessary
  3. Hi Janet, the city is lovely, but yes youre right it is expensive and funding is an issue ðŸĪĢ But I'd still like to find out some more about the school if anyone else has any experience of it.
  4. Hi all, My DD is in the fortunate but unexpected position of receiving an offer for the 3 year diploma programme at this contemporary school. Does anybody have any knowledge of the school? She is 16 and definitely has a flair for contemporary/modern dance. She is a strong classic dancer but her language is contemporary and her physique suits this too. However, she is torn between continuing along classic route until 19 and then switching to contemporary. Does anyone have any experience they can share??? I need help - this is beyond my mothering skills and
  5. Hi all, our DD got a wait list for Central Foundation course 😃 - we are so amazed! We are definitely viewing this as a win!!! Now I guess we just wait to see how long the wait list is. Do people actually get places off the wait list?? Sending so many good vibes and good luck thoughts to all others waiting. PS RCS is out today too
  6. I think thats a great slant DD Driver ....thanks for saying it! sometimes its not easy to see the wood for the trees ðŸĪĢ
  7. Hi all, glissade - thanks for the thoughts and idea....I might go down the second opinion route....i think we need some honest feedback so we can establish a plan! our dance teachers are not the best at giving objective feedback. Balletpower - I think our teacher maybe a little naive in how competitive the dance world is these days! glowlight - yes thanks, I did read the thread and i took some courage from it 😄 i think its best we focus on some mid term future such as summer courses etc To everyone - i badly need to improve my skills for qu
  8. Hi all, after submitting many video auditions my DD has received a nice selection of rejection emails. She is 16 and looking for training from Sep 21. We are aware life is not a fairytale, so we tend to live by the mindset that if you work hard and the gods smile on you, you may get a chance 😆. Rejection is disappointing but it^s a huge part of a dancers life. So I'm hoping someone has some advice on how to take a "no" and learn from it and improve...I find the lack of feedback is soooo hard as a parent. Maybe the problem lies in that she simply isn't talented enough,
  9. Hi Meghan, Congratulations to your son. We're looking at european schools, and am just wondering how the process compared to the british audition process. After sub,itting an initial video was there a live online/zoom audition?
  10. Thanks all for this. She was so worried that something she writes places her application in the "no pile" before they even look at her...after much persuading she accepted this was unlikely to happen... I will encourage her to write from the heart without any diva or drama if that makes sense.
  11. Hi All, My daughter was looking at the application for Rambert School yesterday and discovered you need to complete a Personal Statement. She has not written one of these before and was stumped what to include and how long it should be. What kind of information do you need to include in the personal statement? Can anyone help explain what kind of things are worth mentioning? Thanks for any help. Wishing everyone a good start to the week 😊
  12. thanks for the imovie & film from floor tips 😊 ill be sure to anticipate some midnight candle hours ðŸĪŠ
  13. Thanks Aklf and Peanuts68 🙂 I think my internet browser was automatically loading a stored page ðŸĪŠ I'm happy to learn there is no compulsory video. On the topic of dance videos I welcome any tips or hints that others have learnt whilst making audition videos.... Our dance school is not so helpful with making videos .... they charge for the studio time and do not help with the music or exercises. It is up to the child to decide what to include. They dont even stay in the room. It's really a hands off approach. 😝 I appreciate schools have different requirem
  14. Hi Aklf, Thats really useful to know. Could you please explain where you got this info from...I've been checking their website and cant find any info for 2020/21. We will be in the audition trail next year and I'm afraid I'll miss the deadlines! Thanks.
