Their web sight says three weeks after a live audition date.

 

We have just booked studio space for half-term so hoping that places will still be available in a months time.  Will going back to the old venue reduce places - I assumed the new site would have more space - just worried that the cost of applying will not be worth it.

It’s a  very good Summer School Newdancermum. So if you can you can still go for it, would be definitely worth the effort. I am sure if you’re Dd meets the requirements, there will be a space for her.

 

Thank you - at the very least it will be nice for her to do a one-to-one coaching session.  We have allowed plenty time to do normal class work and then work on the video.

For those who were at the 2nd Feb audition, is this be the day we need to keep refreshing those e-mails I wonder? :unsure: 

Hope so. The email had said 14 days. Probably a mistake but I need to sort out summer hols.

This is my concern as if I don't get my dates in I may not get the time off.  We are not very confident about a place so will have to start looking elsewhere anyway and dates of what we are looking at are different.  If I book leave now I won't necessarily be able to change it.

 

We are starting to feel that this was a waste of time.  So many places have already been given out (DD heard recently - through Instagram no doubt - about places being offered to those who did well last year without having to audition/send in videos) and they will no doubt have to keep some for the applications that will come in right up to the deadline.  I was wondering if the decision not to move the summer school to the new premises is causing a problem.  The change to the new format was predicated on using the new studios.

 

We will remain hopeful until we hear but I will stop refreshing and get back to enjoying half-term!

So we managed to get a DVD done and off to ENB.  I thought the web site said a response within two weeks but I can't find this now and we have been told that we wont hear anything before the start of April.  Anyone else heard anything back about a date for outcomes?  I did see that they had an international audition for summer school this week.  I am beginning to think this wasn't worth the effort and cost.  I know RBS is also a long shot but at least, for now, they only ask for photos.  Feeling quite despondent for DD.  :mellow:

We have, so far, managed to avoid the dreaded video. Know it will catch up with us soon though and having nightmares already. Like you say, such a lot of effort, time, money for studio hire etc. So many of the schools requiring this now and as Dd gets older and wants more international experience, there’s no escape.

But you’ve got to be in it to win it, as the saying goes and although all these international auditions sound daunting and your mind can run wild, thinking you’ve no chance, it’s simply not true. Fingers crossed for your Dd.

Thank you - you are right.  I would love a summer school abroad - for me as much as DD so maybe next year.  Ideas welcome - somewhere warm and sunny with good food and wine and nothing to do but read.  Usual dance mum territory - but swapping the bad weather and coffee and cake!  :)

 

PS - It does say three weeks on the web site but April is still nearer five - I don't get any more patient as I get older - that's for sure! :rolleyes:  DD as usual will take it in her stride!

Would anyone's 14/15/16 year old DD going for the first two weeks of the summer school like to chat/make friends with my DD.  She is 15 and doesn't know anyone going - it might make things a bit easier if she knew someone also going on the first two weeks.  Shes quiet and shy, loves books and animals!  PM if interested :)
