Questions about Lower School auditions

Recommended Posts

How did it go those auditioned today at Tring?

We are just getting ready for tomorrow morning, excitement in our house at the first audition finally being here.

 

And was it tights or socks??? :)

I was there with my son today. The traffic on the M25 was absolutely awful and only some judicious flouting of posted speed limits saw us arrive at 9am. If he gets called back for a funding audition I will consider staying nearby the night before.

 

We had a tour of parts of the school after a brief address by the principal and staff where they were keen to emphasise their academic record.

 

My son was one of 3 boys and wore tights. There were 9 or 10 girls I think and I haven't asked him what they wore. He probably wouldn't have noticed anyway ;)

 

Apparently the audition went fine.

 

Hope this is of some use

Thanks - DD did enjoy herself at the audition today! 

 

Luckily we arrived with half hour to spare (all the traffic on M25 was going the OTHER way) - it seemed a fairly small group, about 6 girls and 5 boys? 

 

She said the lunch was good (pasta with tomatoes) and she didn't really know what she was doing in the 'Modern' class but she has never done 'Modern' before so no biggie.

And the stretch assessment (for which we had been envisaging lots of pulling and prodding) was very basic, box splits, upright and lying forward, seated forward bend, and lying on backs pulling legs towards themselves. 

 

She came out smiling, which is the main thing. Ten days wait they said.

Glad we have got the first one out of the way.

 

Edited to add - and they all wore tights apparently  :)

It's lovely to hear news but can I please ask that we keep this thread for questions relating to auditions - it was pinned so it's easy for people to find information.

 

If you'd like to discuss the auditions please start a new thread. Thanks everyone (and good luck)

Congratulations to those dancing children through to finals! :-)

 

May I echo JulieW above and ask you to post news here: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/10533-lower-school-auditions-2016/ so that this thread remains for non-year-specific *questions* - it makes it easier for people to find information in the future. I have moved all posts regarding today's results into the "lower school auditions 2016" thread.

 

Many thanks.

Can anyone remember roughly when the applications went live last year for lower schools?  Only date I can find in thread was Sept 7th 2015 for RB F/T training.

Royal already live Southerndancemum ....... It's crazy how quickly application time comes around , I cannot remember a time when I wasn't fretting about photos and closing dates .

On closer inspection I think it's just the dates of the auditions (phew) .

A simple question, as a newbie to all this. 


 


Application PHOTOS:-  Are they looking for professional photographic studio quality or clear photos taken by a parent in a dance studio setting?


 


I have the info on the positions and clothing but nothing else. I don't want to get it all wrong and lessen any chances because of a simple error


 


Any advice gratefully received. 


 


Thank you    :)

I done my dd's last year at home in the kitchen infront of plain wall and she got to finals in everything she applied for so it definitely doesn't need to be done by a professional as I haven't a clue about dance lol but in the studio with teacher would be ideal, that's what we done first year. Good luck ????
