Did you get into LCB after all those rounds? Our DD didn't really like the audition and felt she wasn’t challenged enough, which she was at the EYB audition (parents watched so I know she was asked to do things she never had done before). Her duet partner went through to LCB finals but didn't make the final cut. 

She didn’t get in after all those rounds - she really had her heart set on it, she loves the story of ballet shoes. I hadn’t really considered EYB as it’s so expensive  -  is it worth the money do you think?

It is definitely worth it! When I worked out the number of hours they trained and rehearsed, it wasn’t that much different than the cost of a ballet class hourly. The experience gave our DD so much confidence in her dancing and being on stage. She would love to do it again! ☺️

2 more Bath results, my DDs 2 friends (a yr5 girl and a yr4 boy) who applied also got a no. Bath has not been very kind to the forum this year! Is there a single Bath yes?

 

I hope the rest of the results come out this week so everyone knows where they are! Good luck all still waiting. xx

From our dance school we know of 2 yeses. 1 girl and 1 boy (yr 5 and 6)

We had exactly the same situation with LCB. Both of my DDs got through the Day 1 cuts and got to Finals (second time auditioning for both) but neither of them was offered a place either in the Main Cast or the tour. It was particularly disappointing for DD1 as she is now too old to audition again. She has performed in EYB twice and loved it and it has helped her get over the disappointment of LCB.

Apologies if this has been asked before.

I know nothing about the SWL.

Has anyone ever had luck finding out their DC’s position on the waiting list (chances)?

How really short is that list?

I’ve heard anecdotes of people getting places off the list, but no one I personally know.  

I’ve already responded “yes please” to the list, but have no idea of the chances.

I’m heartbroken for DD who who thinks “she’s kind of in and it’s just a matter of time now”.

I can’t tell her that she’s wrong or that she’s right... and she’s too small to understand.

I’m so sorry @ExpatB, I’m no help but I wanted to send you and DD a virtual hug. Im keeping my fingers tightly crossed for you.

All being well......Totnes and London 1 today !!

 

Let the nerves and refreshing begin!

 

Good luck all 

 

I certainly hope we get some results today. I’m starting lose sleep (similar to when I can’t sleep because of DD’s RAD exam music going round in my head days before the exam 😂) and I’m out in London tomorrow on a date day with my husband and really don’t want to spend the day refreshing my phone! 😅

 

Good luck everyone! 🤞

We know two who got a call offering a place within 10days of getting SWL a couple of years ago.  They put a less popular second centre as an option when accepting their SWL place and got it. we got SWL, did the same, and didn’t get anything last year then a yes this year though... so it’s never hopeless! It is much better for us to have the first choice centre this year, the second choice would have been such hard work to get to.

Similar here. Exam is tomorrow. Would be good to know irrespective of outcome.

Does anyone else keep getting their DS or DD to show them their ‘frog’ or ‘V from the knees’ whilst lying in their knees to see turnout? 😂 

I did for a while after the audition and stopped when I thought DS wasn't great at it and so I wanted to pretend he would have done it better on the day 😕

Ok this is me into slightly obsessive territory here but please forgive me, it's a long wait for London Day 4 Group 4...! 😂

 

In the reverse frog thing - when the lie on their tummies with knees together and let their feet hang out to the sides - how far ideally should their legs be coming down - does anyone know?!

 

DD can lie on her back with her legs falling out to the side and her knees are pretty much on the floor, she can also lie on her tummy with her legs splayed out like a frog and keep her body all flat and on the floor, but i just don't quite get the reverse frog thing. 

 

Should their feet be hanging down at a certain angle?

 

Sorry - I premise I really am quite normal and chilled out in real life...

This one really confused me as well! I’m still trying to figure it out. DD had never done this before and when she showed me what it was I was (and still am) fairly convinced she was doing it wrong.

No expert here and I’m sure some qualified person will answer better but I think it’s to check turn in? As opposed to turn out. So this one gives an overall picture of hip rotation in both directions. This is just a guess though, happy to be corrected!

I don’t know the other way but I know in normal frog (lying on tummy with knees out to side and legs hanging down) that my DD is definitely not flat to the floor and she got in so it’s not a deal breaker. 🤞🤞🤞

And importantly, congrats to those with a yes and swl and also to those with a not yet- Keep trying! Things can easily change in a years time. 

Hope the wait is over soon for the those still awaiting results, it must be agony! Fingers crossed for you all!

This gives a vague indication of hip rotation but the only way to get a correct measurement is from a physiotherapist.
