My stomach went over when I saw April. It would be great to know either way by then. I just wish there was feedback from auditions as my dd decided to do it again but I’ve got no idea why they would choose her this year when they didn’t last time. What if it was based on her body type??? She can’t change that??? Oh well it will make her resilient if nothing else! 

Yes same here! 
My dds teacher says has a lot of potential and everything royal ballet are looking for  (as I’m sure many others do, her teacher has had several children gain places) but if she isn’t right for them I’d rather know so we don’t keep auditioning and breaking my daughters heart. 
It would be so lovely to get feedback.

You may not all want to hear this but ....

 

DS rang the other day, having got in a huff about something and nothing, he'd applied for a vacancy elsewhere.  Should he now follow through and take the audition?

 

I could think of many, many reasons why not but ended up rather feebly suggesting he treated it exactly the same as when he was little and we used to trot off to auditions together.  The view was always that it would be a lovely day out and if anything came of it, so much the better and we'd discuss the implications then.

 

So consider this the first of many, many such trips to come (although I obviously no longer play taxi).  We've had more lovely days out with nothing to discuss except where to have lunch than successes over the years, but that early training still comes in useful!

Yes I did notice that myself but looking tonight don't think it's still possible to apply as the button disappeared 

It still allows me to click apply now. Very strange.

It still says today on the website. It’s funny because my DD did an online JA insight day in Feb and they were very clear that they wouldn’t accept applications after 11am on the 23rd March. My only guess is that they realised their submission date was pretty close to the WL finals and results so maybe they wanted to keep them separate. 
 

I wonder how long it’ll be until we hear - the Tring CBA submission deadline is today and they’ve said we should hear by the 15th April. But last summer it was about 6 weeks before we heard about JAs so I’m trying not to think about it too much 😂

Is it? There’s no dates on the website. I did email them a few weeks ago about applying but didn’t get a reply :(

Is that for Tring? I think we applied at the beginning of February and the people who’d applied then got the video requirements a couple of weeks later. The website says they’ll have dates for summer auditions soon though 😊

Good luck to all that have auditioned for RBS JA and CBA, this is our first year trying auditions, I saw on a letter that CBA wanted to let people know by the 15th April because they may ask some to start in the summer term with starts the 25th April ?? did anyone else see that? I might look back at the emails to double check.

Just copied this from the CBA email I got for those who have auditioned both:

 

'Successful candidates will be considered for intake to the Summer term, commencing 25thApril 2021. '

 

Hope this helps.

Goodness knows when the RBS ones will be...

Correct. CBA is good and my DD is enjoying it although mostly on zoom this year.

Our teacher emailed us yesterday to tell us that they are hoping to do in person auditions and we should hear from them in April if dd has been successful for that. 
So hopefully the wait won’t be to long!
