Good luck boys! 🥰 Enjoy yourselves. 
 

I think the first group have gone in. We are on our way there  (very excited little boy here. 🥳 And one stressed mum constantly double and triple checking everything incase we’ve forgotten a ballet shoe or something. 😬🤞😆

My son went in at 1.30, so I'm just sitting in some random carpark killing time!

 

All the boys waiting in the line seemed happy and excited. I can't wait to find out what it was like as he has never done an audition before.

Eek, hope it went well! It’s a long time to kill isn’t it! Not sure what we’re going to do, hoping for decent weather next week so we can maybe go for a walk!

Good luck to the girls next week! DS said it wasn’t as difficult as he’d expected and everyone is so friendly. He had the most amazing day! I hope the other boys did too. No look around apparently though. 

 

We are done now (I’m so very relieved - I’m definitely not cut out for the stress of auditions!) Good luck to everyone auditioning elsewhere tomorrow and later during the week. You are all fabulous! Go and be the stars that you are. 💫

If the weather is good, the park’s car parks are donation only so not crazy expensive (or busy) - go and spy some deer, we saw so many today. Such a lovely park with some lovely walks and beautiful views. Fingers crossed for better weather for you all.

The masks and distancing really make socialising so strange - I wanted to say hi but such a difficult situation in the socially distanced queue. 

 

The wait was painfully long with nowhere open other than for take away coffees. I hope your DS enjoyed the day and felt welcomed. White Lodge finals is a huge deal for a first audition (and any, but especially WOW for a first). Well done! 👏👏👏

Thanks for the update, glad your son had a lovely day! Helpful to know there’s no tour, will prepare dd for that, as she might be disappointed otherwise. Still I guess they’ll see a few bits on their way between the class/physio etc.

They get to go out the front where the grand steps are to get to the physio so at least they see that part of the building. First thing out of ds mouth was “ The building was beautiful”

Just back from an exciting day at White Lodge! My DS said everyone was so lovely, and the other DSs in his group were so friendly and encouraging to each other..he hopes they all get in! He also said they were videoing the class (presumably to review later)? Good luck to all the girls for their auditions next week!

Ooh that’s interesting. My DS didn’t say anything about videos (but getting info out of him is almost impossible so not surprised there). Was your DS the last group of the day?

 

Glad your DS had a wonderful time in a lovely group! 🥰

Thanks for that! No, we were second group (just a very long journey home - hence have heard every detail about the day including the paintings on the walls, what they chatted about while waiting to see the physio...!)😂

Oh that is just lovely!

We heard about the paintings too. 😅 I wanted to hear more about the actual audition but nope, we got to hear more about King George II. 🤣

 

I hope it was a smooth journey. The weather hasn’t been too kind today.

My ds was telling me all about the other boys, they got onto discussing Harry potter at one point! 

 

He loved just being there and loves the school but is very aware that he was nowhere near as good as the other boys. He's only been dancing for 2 years so this was all a bit of a shock getting to finals.

 

He couldn't stop talking about everything and just when I'd thought he'd finished and we started listening to our book again, he paused it and told me something else he remembered 😂 And he was asleep within 5 minutes of getting into bed tonight after the journey home.

 

Thank you to the other boys in his group for making the day special - hopefully they'll all get a space as my son said how fab they were! 

 

I really wanted to say hello too while waiting in the queue as this is all new to me aswell as my son xx

Which group was your ds in? My ds said how lovely the boys were in his group too. So supportive and encouraging, all wishing each other luck etc. ❤️

He was in at 1.30. I'm not sure what group it was? 

 

I love how supportive they were as I had heard some horror stories of how competitive it can be. He came out beaming, which is always a good sign that he is relaxed and happy. 

 

Are any of your boys doing Elmhurst next week? Xx
