RBS year 6 JA audition. Email class

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done the year 6 RBS JA’s video audition?  I’ve sent my daughters in but didn’t get any receipt or acknowledgement.  Did any of you?  
thanks

It was quite a difficult procedure I gather .

To film it and send it off !

It will take a long time to look at them all !

We quite enjoyed doing it and filming it.  Although my camera ran out of storage so I had to quickly swap to my phone!!  They’ve only done it for year 6 entry but I guess they’ll still have a lot to look at.

We put ours on Vimeo so it will at least be obvious when they view it because if there's a view showing, it can't be anyone else - at least I hope so. But I can't believe they're going to sit down and watch every single one from beginning to end. I mean it would be amazing if they did, but they'd be there til Christmas!

I'm recording my daughters today. Not clicked on the video link so no idea what to expect and it's her first ever audition. Can anyone tell me how long the video actually is ? I'm more nervous about messing up the filming of it if I'm honest. Good luck to all who've applied 🤞 xx

It’s about 40 minutes.  The teacher gives very clear instructions, just hold the camera nice and still!  (No nervous shaking!) 😁

Amazing thank you !! Yes think I'm just worried about messing it up ha xx

Remember that they only want to see what your little dancer can do - they won't be judging your skills as a cinematographer.

We've just recorded so going to upload on a min. I know i was just a bit worried about her having enough room etc to perform the exercises but we did thankfully !! Good luck to everyone 👏 xx

No I didn’t get any acknowledgement which scared me but I think if there’s a problem hopefully they’ll contact you. It took me hours to upload the video to Dropbox! Hopefully we will know before end of term but there’s going to be a lot of videos for them to get through so could be longer. X

I had exactly the same problem as my phone had recorded in some sort of super HD so the file was massive. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long. I used vimeo as somebody mentioned you can see when it's been viewed so I'll keep an eye on that too xx

Will do. I am a bit rubbish with the whole technical thing tbh but I'd seen on here someone had mentioned it so thought it would be handy xx

Who knows! I would think they have a few hundred to look through and each one is 35 minutes! Assuming they watch the whole thing

It’s usually late June when we find out, I know they’ve got loads to get through but I can’t imagine they’ll leave it too long as obv people need to get organised with uniforms and stuff. So my bet is that it will be before end of summer term. 🤞 I did hear that they have two classes in year 6 so potentially lots more spaces if this is still what they do. X

Yes last in person audition was mid May last year and we heard mid June so fingers crossed it might be by end July...

Hopefully mid-July? Depends on the approach taken to viewing the videos. Staff will surely be keen to wrap this up and have their summer break. Will they skim through and look for what they need?  It would be interesting to know. Good luck everyone!

Did the audition video include the stretches that they normally include in the live auditions? If these take place fairly early in the recording that might be a point where they decide whether to keep watching. I imagine that if a child doesn’t fit key criteria, they wouldn’t watch the full half hour of video... 

Fingers crossed for everyone! Hopefully you won’t have to wait too long.

Yes there were stretches and warm up exercises so you could be right. I really hope it's not too long 🤞 xx
