London Children’s Ballet: Ballet Shoes

Yes we are the same, my dd got a no but a waiting list for tour. 

Do they all get this?

It's a very nicely worded rejection and I wondered if they all get waiting list to soften the blow?

Just trying to manage expectations - don't want her waiting in hope.

Does anyone know of anyone who got a tour place from waiting list?

Congrats to all those who got a yes! Quite an achievement.

Well done to your DD @Betty they definitely don't all get this as DD2 was offered nothing at all after Finals (which was what DD1 got last year), so that's a big achievement!

Sorry to read about the nos, particularly those that tried again!

My DD didn't get past the 2nd audition last year, but got to Finals and waiting list for the touring company this year. 

 

In the meantime we've signed up for the Auditions Masterclass with Fiona Chadwick so that's lovely to look forward to!

My daughter played one of the spinster aunts in the last cast of Ballet shoes, as well as lots of other parts. It was a fabulous experience with so many likeminded children. She later met up with quite a few of them at Central School of Ballet, others went to Rambert and ENB. 

Enjoy, and for the record, no audition is ever wasted, all excellent experience for the later years, in a very tough environment.

Just want to seconded this. DD has just started her auditions for 18+ and is extremely grateful to all the experience she gained over the years with auditions. She had pleanty of nos but she  never gave up, often re applying to the same company. Every audition she took something away with her. 

Congratulations to those who got a yes, I am sure they will have a wonderful time. To those that got a no remember it just means not this time and to keep going.

Sounds to me that’s a place in the main company. That’s what DD’s letter said last year ...

Has anybody else who received the yes email still not received the postal letter? My DD is only 9 and I haven't told her she has a place yet, because the email said wait for the letter which was posted Monday...5 days and counting....

I would ring/email them first thing tomorrow to get clarification.

Well done to everyone who was offered a place, we have our tickets booked and look forward to seeing the final show.  It was a no letter for my lovely, whilst she was upset she is determined to try again next year and I think this is partly because of the positive experience offered by the LCB team and the wording of the 'no' letter is so positive too.  Well done all and have a wonderful time leading up to the production.

Hello, my dd got a no and a waiting list for the tour too. Until I read this I just assumed everyone got on the waiting list. Ive emailed LCB as the letter never arrived through the post just the email which is fine but wanted to ask about the wait list and thought I would pass on what they said. They said last year 12 were on the wait list and 2 from the wait list got places on the tour. Very interesting. Not sure if the same this year but our dd's should be proud xx

Hi all,

We have four tickets to the Final Show (Sunday 7th July) in the front row of the Circle. (Bought prior to results).

As it happens, that's not a convenient date for us to go now and we will ideally be looking to book on another date. If anyone is interested in the tickets please message me for details - it would be particularly lovely if friends or family of someone in the Production had them as they are great seats. 

If there are no takers, I will put this up on the tickets sale/exchange thread next year.

Thanks everyone!

Hi All

I bought tickets to see LCB Ballet Shoes but my daughter's dance school has since called a dress rehearsal for their annual show so we are no longer able to go, such a shame we were really looking forward to it.    If anyone is interested please get in touch, I booked 2 seats row C Stalls for the Saturday 530 pm, I paid £48 but willing to sell for less x
