Does anyone know how many are on the SWL for each centre? X 

No but to me it looks like they have taken more on waiting list than previous years I am hoping that this is because of social distancing and not knowing what’s going on in September with Centres and whether kids can go back to their dance studios.  With all this uncertainty it’s better to say a definite yes to less and put others on a waiting and see how it pans out.  Fingers crossed this is the case as my DD received SWL as well.

I hope you’re right but I seem to remember there are always a lot of children given SWL. Do you think it’s still possible for dance teachers to phone for feedback? It’s stressful not knowing whether it’s worth applying for vocational schools now that year 6 is only a couple of months away. I was hoping my son’s current associate scheme would give pointers/ advice but no! Big decision to make

It’s weird that on my Vimeo plus it still shows that our video hasn’t been watched. All that checking was for nothing! 

Ours was definitely watched on the 24th we had Vimeo plus.  That is strange.  Definitely more on the waiting list for our small centre any way so I am really hoping things may change in a months time when we know what September will looks like.

Did you get a no/yes/SWL? X

Maybe they are only having smaller classes this year. They usually take a whole other class in year 6 so they have two classes. This is the case in bham and London I think anyway so maybe that wasn’t possible this year due to social distancing, which would explain less yes’s 🤔

Yes it’s a bit odd. We are pleased with the SWL anyway and you’re right, could be loads of change by Sept anyway!

Well done to everyone!! SWL is also great.....my DD got SWL in year 4.....3 days later we got a phonecall giving her a place. She got to WL finals and has a place at Elmhurst full time. I will keep my fingers crossed!

Thats amazing, well done to your DD.  Gives me hope for my DD who is on SWL for London.  I do wonder how much covid is having an affect on places being offered.

We had a no for year 5 and now have a swl for year 6 Totnes, just keeping everything crossed but feels unlikely 🤞🤞

We have SWL for Totnes as well and I know of three others with SWL so I agree feels very unlikely we would all get a space.  Fingers crossed for us both though.

Please don’t give up hope if on SWL as we know two girls who were offered MA places from the list. One took a place after a girl confirmed she wouldn’t be taking her MA place as was going to boarding school and another was offered a place after someone declined the place through taking other associate places (non RBS).

 

There is often movement between places. We know someone who got an SA place but only did year 1 and didn’t wish to continue to do year 2 as found it too much with a 3 hour train ride there and with the pressures of school work in year 11. 
 

So whilst I wouldn’t assume your DC will get a place, places do sometimes become available. 
 

Fingers crossed and well done on gaining a place on SWL as it’s very very competitive and not easy!!

Just a word of warning to anyone who created a Vimeo plus account. I’ve just noticed a payment of £89.20 pending to come off my account.  To avoid this you have to opt out of auto-renew before 30 days has lapsed. So make sure you do this and remove your card details too. I Didn’t even remember adding them when I set up the account. I just googled how to cancel the subscription and it was really easy - just a few steps. Thought I should mention it in case it affects anyone else!

That’s a good point. I guess they may have downloaded them but maybe not. I guess they might contact me if they try and look again and there is a problem with the video

I have unsubscribed already a couple days ago and I had an email saying I would be transferred to a free account and that 10gb of videos could stay on the free account as long as you don’t delete your account and just unsubscribe your account for Pro.  So the video should still play if they need to watch again.

Thank you, that’s really helpful! X

Obviously I don’t know for sure but in my opinion they will have a definite numbered waitlist and won’t need to watch the videos again. 

I’d guess you’re right.

Hi everyone. I'm another on the SWL! My dance teacher asked me to ring the royal and ask how long the list was. I did but only got through the an answering machine, left a message and they havent returned my call. I dont want to be a weird stalker mum and call again 😂. Has anyone else been advised to call and find out more? X

No I haven't, it would be interesting to know though.  There does seem to be a lot on SWL.  What centre were you enquiring about? My DD is SWL for London x
