My daughter was told they wouldn’t hear until the end of April which seems a very long wait & will obviously impact on MA & SA results too 😬

This waiting game is a nightmare!! I’m thinking if we dont hear today, it will be after Easter now as they won’t be working over the weekend (or do they??)

My DS is attending the Spring Intensive and we had an email this afternoon with contact numbers. Within that email, it was stated that they could not be reached over the Easter weekend 🙂

Totally agree! Am trying (& failing) to put it out of my head! My daughter also leaves for the Spring Intensive on Tuesday - I’d hope she’d know before but clearly not! Will be tough if I hear it’s a ‘no’ whilst she’s there 😬

They are all on leave until 7th April so maybe after that? Though date of acceptance of a WL place was by Wednesday 8th April 

That’s interesting - all white lodge staff on leave until next Wednesday? We are still waiting to hear about audition results for full time training (years 8, 9, 10)....

I’m not sure ALL are but the ones I have dealt with in sending back acceptance forms etc are on leave

Did I read earlier in this thread that there were zoom auditions this weekend for overseas students?  If so,    results may not likely until mid-next week anyway?

Yes I had heard from a reliable source that zoom auditions are being held for a few boys who couldn’t make the finals & internationals on the 19th April so still a long wait for MA places

But surely the international auditions wouldn’t effect the MA results? X

Some were prospective year 7 students 

But wouldn’t have applied for MAs though 🤔 it’s too long a wait however long 🤣 it’s been nice knowing ‘after Easter’ as I have forgotten about it but come Tuesday I’ll be refreshing emails again 🤦‍♀️

There are a couple of UK students who couldn’t make face to face audition so are doing it on zoom! They could well get MA places

I was told by my DDs JA teacher the MA results are based purely on the prelim video and a JA teacher report (if they are a current JA) 

I’d think results will be out before online auditions, even if there are uk students still waiting to be seen. 
Hopefully not much longer to wait 🙏🏻🤞🏻

Hi Ballerina girl. I think they do take into account finals though as well as our JA teacher said sometimes they find a physical issue (i guess from physio assessment) which might rule you out from MA....? X

If they are JA’s then any physical issue will of most likely been flagged up at prior physio assessments at JA classes. I know several children who’ve not applied for white lodge but have been given MA places in previous years and we were always told it’s based directly from prelim auditions. No doubt if a major issue does get flagged up at finals then it will affect their MA result but most decisions will be based on prelims (or videos in this years case) xx

My dd was a JA for 2 years and made WL and elmhurst finals - physio at both finals noticed a hip rotation issue in both meaning she’d never quite get 100% turnout on one side, which I found out afterwards was the decider against a place sadly. She was the only one in her class to get MAs however and other girls with no such physio feedback either didn’t get a place or got a MA wait list place - even one that got a place at Elmhurst - so read into that what you like! 🤷🏼‍♀️ You just can’t call it.

How is your daughter now with her hip? Is it fixable or just something she can dance with and not cause problems? 

 

I was also wondering about height? Is height a major factor? My daughter turned up last week to be the tallest of her year 9 girls at audition and i now think she might just get a no cause of that?!

It causes no problems and is unnoticeable to the human eye. Her ballet teacher knew her turnout wasn’t quite as good on that side but didn’t know it was a physical issue as opposed to a strength issue.  It’s not fixable as it’s just the way her bones are made - not everyone can get full rotation even if they’re in full splits etc - it was only a few % but at finals for classical ballet it’s the difference between a place and no place when there are so many talented children. 
 

Im not sure whether it was taken into account for MAs or not or whether they update her file but she continued get places on the royal summer/spring intensive so perhaps only used for finals? 
 

In terms of height my dd was small but not tiny but her best friend there was tall. There was a huge range of sizes and shapes at JAs in terms of body shape, leg length, height (both talller and smaller than my dd) and overall look including lots of different strengths. 
 

At MAs the body shape and height of the girls tended to be more similar but there was a tiny girl and a very tall girl in an older year so I honestly don’t think you can call it. Good luck xxx

My daughter said there were 3 for year 8 entry and 3 for year 9 entry- all girls (she went in at 1.30pm today). Not sure how many others there were in the morning.

There were 6 for year 8 in my daughters group at 3pm.😬
