Am I right in thinking all the initial auditions are done for WL now?  Does anyone know how many they saw?

 

DD was at audition yesterday and there seemed to be a fairly equal split of JA leotards, and (presumably) JAs, but that might have just been our group.

 

I was in a bit of a daze (too early for me) - think they said we will hear by email in 2 - 3 weeks.  does that sound right to people hearing last year?

 

Good luck to all the DC, they all looked beautiful in our group.

 

 

 

Admin: I didn't see a post for WL auditions for this year so please merge if I missed it.

There is some discussion about this in the pinned "Information for lower School Auditions" post pinned at the top of the forum. Best of luck to your DD :-)

I think results arrive for preliminaries about 17ish days after the audition, Summer School results are meant meant to arrive on 1st March and Associates in early-mid April (for RBS anyway!)

Anyone received anything yet. The first 2 weeks waiting was ok, but the last week has been torture and getting worse by the day. Must be soon, fingers crossed. Xx

Wow what a long wait!!! Good luck to all your dcs and all the waiting parents. Wonder if they've decided to wait and review them all as one this year? Suppose would make sense but waiting is the worst!!

They always wait for the year 7 entry auditions to all finish before they review, but TBG is applying for year 8 I believe and the last year 8 entry auditions were done some time ago.

We were at London audition and I think they said results within 2 weeks but seems unlikely as the first auditions haven't heard yet. Waiting isn't easy but something to get used to I fear!

Well they do appear to make some decisions on the day if the snippet of conversation DD's associates' friend overheard on her way out of the studio at the end of the 22nd January session.  It was "well we don't want that one".  You would have thought they would have waited until the girls were out of earshot!  Good luck to everyone waiting on results!

DD's friend didn't think it was her and couldn't obviously see who it might be but definitely unnerving!

We've experienced this too, quite strange. Maybe they think the children are concentrating so hard they don't hear. Any news for anyone yet? Good luck!

Sorry to hear about the negative experiences...My DD had a lovely time...

I'm dreading the disappointment the letter will most likely to bring....

Some people just don't care, just because they are RB teachers doesn't make them all lovely people.

I don't always think it's negative things said when they are heard talking. Fingers crossed for you all.

What happens at the finals?? was the first audition just a class? do you then have to do a solo etc?? can I just ask how much ballet are your children doing a week? DD would like to audition next year.Are they all JA's??

I heard that they inform all the auditionees from all the centres at approximately the same time, which is why there is such a long wait for those who audition at the first centre. As all the auditions are now complete, hopefully it won't be long at all until everyone finds out. So tough on those who go first though! If they have been waiting for almost 3 weeks then it makes sense that they are judging the final auditionees from London before informing anyone. Fingers crossed for today!

Perhaps today for the year 8/9/10 results? All of the auditions for those were finished a while ago I think.

Hi Flowerpot!

In my DD case...

- the preliminary audition was just a class. DD found it rather enjoyable ..I gather .they look for overall suitability for RBS, like turn out etc...the usual suspects :) and that love of dance perhaps, that something extra....not an advanced technique at least not for Year 7...

- no solo, just some improvisation is required that, they share the improvisation time so music plays and each improvises ...

- based solely on leotards and without really counting them would think half JA and half were not (it can be misleading as some JA don't wear JA leotards) ... but definitely a mix of both JA and none JA ...

- DD does about 8 hours a week and a very late starter

- Don't have any idea about finals as it iwas DD first try for WL.

- if she ever makes it to finals, will post :) but it is a huge IF

Good luck!!!
