Recommended Posts

Thanks Dancefanatic & congrats to your DD too! And to others with funding & places....Last year was first attending & DD loved the dancing & social side. So happy she can go again....& proof that all in with a chance at auditions & value in motto ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try try again!’

Results of the auditions are certainly filtering out.  In a bit of a state of shock as my eldest DD has been offered a bursary (she felt she did really badly at the audition so I was fully expecting a thank you but no email).  Now trying to work out the logistics of actually getting her there and back.

 

Good luck to everyone still waiting.

Congratulations from us 😊♥️

I saw a post on social media today stating results would be out a week today. Good luck everyone.

So this is the extract from Instagram:

 

"We will be notifying students who have submitted a Summer School application of the outcome a week today. ~ 
If you wish to apply and know by next Friday we must have received your application by Thursday 28 midday. ~
Any applications received after this date may be considered and will be notified of the outcome after consideration. "

 

So does this mean that 1st March is no longer the application deadline date?  The other day they were still saying 1st March.  Hope those applying last minute pick up on this.

So results are out tomorrow......but we applied for a one week residential for week 1. Now, a friend messaged me and asked which week we applied for as doing a last minute application, and that option is no longer on the list!!!! Week 3 is only option for one week res. What's going on???? I emailed them but no reply? Anyone else noticed this? Or is it because they have designated places already which removes the option from the list? Do I do a last min application for week 3?

I had the same issue! I called and was told that any single week applications already submitted for week 1 were fine and would be considered. However, they had decided to close single week applications for that week for new applicants.

Thanks!!!! Wish they had said something instead of me finding out like this and having a panic 😂

So it's a no for my dd. She is beginning to get a bit disheartened. She is  RBS JA (will have had 3 full years of this) and a Cecchetti Associate, so she is good! She got a no last year for ybss, and a no this year for both RB and ybss :( I dont know how to cheer her up!

@sunrise81 we are in exactly the same boat (not RBS but other good Associate schemes). I think it's just that competition for places is so tough. There are lots of other good summer intensives to try for so hopefully you will still get a great one. I'm hoping we get a holiday!

Commiserations though, sounds like your DD is a brilliant dancer.

I really wouldn’t worry about not getting into either of these summer schools honestly! Why don’t you try Malvern Summer School - New this year but dd been to all the Easter courses and absolutely loves them! Gutted we can’t get to the Easter one this year cos of school commitments but glad we will be able to do summer instead!

Just had a look at Malvern but we are on holiday during both those weeks. We are up in the north too. She's too young for Northern Ballet. EYB are doing a performance in York that she had been told about, so might let her apply for that.

My DS went to Moorland last year and loved it the teachers are really positive and encouraging and excellent ballet teachers 

Thanks :) Just shown her and she seems happier now! I feel so bad for her as I can't answer her question of why she keeps getting a no. Not looki forward to auditions next year!

DD did the York Scholars Summer school a couple of years ago and loved it. 

She would go again, but has other commitments.

DD also did OPES, which i know isn't running anymore, but the Parkers are running something, near Nottingham...i just can't remember what it is called!

My DD also did York Ballet scholars a couple of years ago and loved it. Highly recommend especially for a first residential. Rooms are lovely, staff very friendly and a high standard of dancing. Food was good and they got to use the swimming pool!

My student got a no for week 2 - I gather it was closed ages ago, but after she applied.  Really disappointed for her - she was so keen.  I wish the schools like Central and ENB had chaperoned residences.  Is there another one in or near London anyone would recommend?

Obviously not in London but Elmhurst use the on-site boarding houses for the summer school.
