Re year 14 - For someone graduating from another school WITHOUT a job, this could be the perfect stepping stone to a career.

I’m very cynical about it, I would love to be proved wrong but hope anyone looking at it does so with their eyes wide open.

I think there is a market for Y14 places or movement between schools - KS Dance seem to take students who have had injury issues at other US. They do have a dance scientist to help. I suppose the question is what can Elmhurst (or any other place) offer you that your current/past school hasn't been able to?

 

I also, like Jane, have a fair degree of suspicion. There seems to be an expanding number of 'post grad' courses. Maybe we need to address the issue of training too many dancers....

am completely new to this so apologies for maybe asking obvious questions. My DD auditioned for year 7 Elmhurst Young Dancers in May unfortunately it was a no for her. She auditioned in year 6 Junior associates Birmingham Royal Ballet last year & was placed on their SWL. Unfortunately it was a no from Mid Associates Royal Ballet this year. She never auditioned for full time vocational study either at the Royal Ballet or Elmhurst. My question would be if it's worth trying to audition for year 7 full time at Elmhurst this year as noticed they put out some late audition dates for y7 as she just received a no from young dancers? And also is it worth auditioning for year 8 Royal Ballet WL as again places so limited and thinking they will have even less chance as classes already formed from full time students moving up from year7 to year 8? Thank you

I know of 2 non vocational offered 6.1 and both took up offers elsewhere 

I’m aware of 5 (2 DS & 3 DD’s) who’ve turned down 6.1 and chosen the Degree route instead - some due to being able to access Degree funding. 2 others are going Overseas. I believe they offered 10-15 placed for 6.1.

Vocational school are very expensive for most people & DaDA’s don’t cover boarding.

I would suggest sending in an application. Usually for the late auditions they screen from the forms and only invite if interested. I know previously they only charged the audition fee if you were invited but this may have changed. To be SWL in yr 6 is promising. Good luck.

So far for year 7 Elmhurst have accepted 15 girls (They can take upto 18) and only 6 boys!!! So guessing they are mainly looking for year 7 boys!!!!
