Lower School Auditions 2016

Recommended Posts

We got the MA result last year around 4pm on 30th March.  We got a phone call with a place offer in early June (my DD was short listed) after a lot of the vocational school shuffling had sorted itself out, even though there was still shuffling going on in July from memory.

Not exactly ballet related, but my elder daughter auditioned this week for Arts Ed school in London for signing and drama course and I got a call this morning she has got a place for year 9! She will be so happy.

Just have to hope we have good news in next few weeks for younger DD who is waiting to do finals for YDA and Elmhurst ...

 

I'm going to be broke though ...

Good luck to all those still to audition. Just wanted to offer a few (hopefully) wise words having the benefit of hindsight. My DD auditioned for Hammond Associates towards the end of Year 6. Totally unexpectedly we received a telephone call offering her a full time place for Year 7. We had never considered this and as my DD was quite shy and home loving, we turned it down and she just did Associates whilst carrying on at her very good dance school. My DD is now in her 2nd year of the Hammond Professional students doing dance so I guess if it's meant to be it will be. Don't be disheartened by a no. My DD had no's along the way, she also had yes's. It's a bumpy ride not for the faint hearted but somehow the right path will show itself at the right time.

Does anyone know of any Yr 9 places given out from White Lodge for girls? Or even a wait list? DD is Ok and has Summer School to think of now!

I know of 1 girl who has been potentially been offered a Year 9 place, although like the Year 8 offer it seems to be subject to a dance class alongside the current pupils. The year 8 one is happening today so I guess they should know soon.

Waiting mum - is this a new thing then? I'd never heard of the place being conditional on doing dance class with current year before?

No I'm not aware of it happening before. The year 8 candidate had to come a dance in one of the year 7s ballet classes yesterday, don't know why they have started doing this - to make a better comparison I guess!

Thanks waiting mum - are they from YDA? Do you know if they offer waiting list places at this point?

I'm not sure where they are from. I guess they will need to make a decision on the whether the prospective candidates are offered a place before they go to the waiting list but only know what my dd is telling me - sorry!

I thought there were 14 already in year 7 and 8, so are they going to 15 potentially then?

At the audition insight day we went to in October Mr Powney did say they could take up to 15 in a year.
