Out of interest how many times were your videos viewed? 
Ours only once about 3/4 of each video. I thought that was bad news. 
so I guess really can’t tell 

We had ours viewed once each, but only for less than a minute each so I thought we were a no. Was so surprised!!!

Huge congratulations to all the DDs and DSs whatever your results! This has been a crazy year and to have the perseverance to do video audition and keep on dancing is a great achievement in itself! Past experience with own DS shows that it's always worth trying again! Xx

WELL DONE everyone! SO many yesses and SWLs! And to the nos, I'm sure we'll be joining you soon! I hope your children aren't too disappointed. JAs is far from being the be all and end all!

 

Any Eastleigh results out yet?

My DD did this last year and loved it.  yes it's via zoom 

Sorry for so many questions, were they pre recorded classes or were they live, I have heard that they were videos so just trying to see if they would be worth the money, thank you xxx

DD is a yes for a Year 5 place in Leeds. Last year was a straight no so a bit shocked
 

Congratulations to the other yes’ and SWL and i am sorry for the No’s.

They we're live over a 10week course.  She really enjoyed that and has gained a place this year too so they clearly helped her.

Congrats to all the yeses and SWL 🎉. I know SO many gorgeous dancers that are now at vocational school or with RBS Mids and Senior Associate places who never received a JA place - so if it was a no today - don’t give up 👍

This is so true my DD had nos and a SWL for year 6 but was invited to WL and Elmhurst finals and is now starting Elmhurst in September so it’s true never give up.  I think they nos and the SWL gave her more determination to get a place at vocational school. Well done to all the yes and SWL and it really is is a not yet for the nos, just keep believing.

Please can someone explain the abbreviations - JEP & SWL 

 

also, are all the “no” emails identically worded - ours said they saw potentially & we should audition again next year....is this wording just a way of letting us down gently (1st time auditioning so no disappointment here😀)

My dd got SWL and did JEP last year.  This year they have called it ‘online Junior Associate Programme’ and it is on a Sunday rather than a Saturday and for 12 sessions instead of 10 so not sure if it will be any different to JEP.  The email says it’s a ‘new junior associates online programme’ 🤷🏼‍♀️

Well, after what feels like the longest wait in the world and after a ‘No’ for years 4 and 5, my dd has received a very unexpected ‘Yes’! It definitely hasn’t sunk in yet even a good few hours later!

 

To anyone who is reading this today or in the future after receiving a ‘No’, please don’t think this is a full stop in your child’s ballet journey. I absolutely wrote my dd off and have been telling everyone for ages that she ‘just isn’t Royal material’, even refusing to apply for the Spring or Summer intensives because I thought there was absolutely no point if she hadn’t even had a SWL for JAs. Yet she has kept persevering and has worked so incredibly hard throughout lockdown. She hasn’t stopped trying, and whilst it might sound cliche, I honestly think that receiving those no’s along the way have helped her become the dancer she is today. This will sound really weird, and I wouldn’t have thought this at the time, but I’m now actually grateful for those no’s! Keep going and never give up on those dreams! X

Well done to everyone this year for dealing with everything involved with the audition process, supporting their dc and patience waiting for results. Hopefully the audition process will return to in person after this year! It’s been great to have this forum for support and to share experiences.

So well deserved - extremely happy for your DD. Well done. Well, well done everyone. Not yets, please do not be disheartened - it is not a sprint, but marathon. Hard work and perseverance plays a key role.

It's a no for us this time (yr 5, Birmingham) 😔 I'm a bit gutted, as last year my DD was on SWL for JA and got a place at Elmhurst Young Dancers. But this year I guess RBS think she has less potential than last year? Her video wasn't the greatest, so I'm not totally surprised.... She's OK with it and loves her classes at Elmhurst. So we'll put this behind us and try again next year  when 🤞🏼 auditions will be in person again!

 

Very well done to all those that were offered places this year, congratulations to you all 🎉💕🩰
