My dd had a wonderful time at the year 6 auditions on Tuesday - it was her first audition for JAs and she went in looking rather nervous but came out so happy and joyful! Great experience, whatever the outcome. She says she'd love to try again next year, even if she never gets a place. Lovely teachers and judging panel too. Phew!  :)

Katia05 what time were you in? We were in the first one not enjoying the rain!! I did wonder how many ballet coers might be there!

We were there for the 11-12:00 class! Was this the first time you'd been too?

No we are seasoned triers! Twice for each DD, mostly just for the fun of it!

I think that's what we'll become after my DD enjoyed it so much this time! A great experience all round, we thought! Good luck, anyway! I guess there's always that little chink of a chance.  ;)

Hi everyone, this is my first post!!

I'm interested to find out if anyone has had results for JA audition yet. My daughter auditioned and we were told July for the results but I spoke to other dance mums who said the results were sent out last week. Does everyone hear at the same time? Thanks

They always say July, but from past experience it's always been early to mid June. Usually start sending them out the week after the last auditions, in order of venue, so Newcastle probably sometime this week, followed by whatever venue was next etc, with London results being emailed out last. It's not definite of course but in my experience (1st DD got a no on her 1st try, then a yes on her 2nd. No 2 DD got a no last year, so this year is her 2nd attempt) that's how it's been done.

Hopeully not too much longer to wait! :)

We were at the Newcastle audition on May 4th (the first centre to audition I think) and were told July. Haven't heard anything yet but hoping it'll be sooner rather than later. It's been a long wait!

Good luck to all who have been waiting a long time! We only just had the London auditions last week. They said we'd hear at the end of June.

Newcastle first. They send out the emails in order of the auditions. London will probably be next week sometime or maybe the week after. That's how it's been done for the last couple of years anyway ????

Hoping it's not too much longer for everyone xx

My FB memories feed has told me today that we found out on this day (7th June) 3 years ago that my DS had got a JA place, auditioned for and place at Newcastle! So thats a further year to back up what Dancing Pickles has said. I think they manage expectations by saying July so we don't all start phoning up and pestering them!!! 

 

Having said that, I'm pretty sure my DS audition 3 years ago was 30 April (before the May Bank Holiday) in Newcastle rather than this year's audition which was 4th May after the Bank Holiday. 

 

Either way, I'm glad my waiting DD still thinks we won't hear until July as otherwise she'd be asking me every day if we'd heard yet!

 

Good luck to everyone waiting to hear!

Hi All, My dd's first audition was London on Tuesday 11-12. We both loved the experience, it was great just being in the RBS building, a very exciting day.  We had to shelter from the wind and rain, where I met a lovely mum in the coffee shop, around the corner before we went in, which calmed my nerves. But now there back!!! Fingers crossed, Good Luck All! x

Hey AuntieNora, lovely forum name! Glad you both enjoyed it, how did your DD find the audition? I was in the waiting area as DD2 was in the first audition and have to say there were some gorgeous looking dancers getting ready to go in for the 11am. Such a lovely experience for them all :-)

Hey, Auntie Nora! We were there for the same class in London and like you, had a wonderful time! We must have seen each other - did you stay and wait? It was such a positive experience and my dd loved it. No expectations whatsoever now, but I think the teachers did a lovely job of making the girls feel inspired and encouraged. Did your dd talk about the 'imagine you're a piece of seaweed' extemporisation piece?! Sounded curious but fun!
