Anyone know when the first results start to appear from preliminary lower school WL auditions? Do they come out in date order of venue or all out together once the auditions have finished? Sorry- very new to all of this!

Hi Emily12 usually within 2 weeks and they usually come out in venue order. After finals it's usually just days for results.

Good luck x

Just wanted to wish all the dance mums and Dc good luck in your up and coming auditions. I went through it last year with my DD and was a nervous wreck. fast forward a year and both her and her JA friends seem very happy with their respective outcomes.There were a mix of children accepting places at various vocational schools to Mid associate places. With another choosing a more musical theatre route.There was also a lot of movement on reserve lists so it's not necessarily the end of the rd if the first letter isn't a straight yes, particularly with MA places.Despite missing my daughter terribly she really does seem very happy , always busy and full of interesting snippets of her day to tell me . I definately feel I made the right decision letting her go. I look forward to reading your journeys and look forward to meeting some of you next September ! Best of luck xxx

What a lovely story and so many talented DC! You must be extremely proud of your DD. It's lovely to hear all the different experiences- good & bad. Like everyone says- if it's a no, then maybe it's just- a not right now... well see what the next few weeks bring. All the best of luck to the children auditioning this week!!

Hi ArucariaBallerina. My DD auditioned on 11th in Bath and no email yet, talk about stressfull it's bad enough waiting 1 week let alone 2 weeks. I think the last auditions are this week so should start hearing in the next day or two - hopefully. Good luck to all who are waiting. Xx

Last year I got the email from the Bath auditions at approx 5:30pm when out at a friend's who had just asked me when were the results in. I checked my phone to find it has just arrived and then had to get her to read the email as I couldn't believe what I was reading - my DD had been called back for finals, totally unexpected as she only did the audition for practice, already being an MA. So still lots of time left before they may start coming out...

Erm, in short...... Not many! Your dd has done incredibly well to get to finals at Elmhurst!!

It's a wealth of information, advice & guidance on here, mine is to brace yourself for a rollercoaster ride, and to occasionally arm yourself with a stiff gin.

Or two!

Thank you after attending SS my DD is now desperate to go to one of the vocational schools ,her dance school is a fun happy environment but it seems to be just a hobby to most . So holding out every hope . Good luck

To any others in the same boat. I feel it's so much to take it learning about different schools MDMAS and dar dars. I have no personal dance experience so can't tell myself how she is doing they all look fabulous to me in her ja class.

Anyone know how long it takes RBS to let you know for finals and mids? DS had audition yesterday. Was for year 8 so have very low expectations which was nice as there really was no pressure. He really loved the audition and had a positive experience so that has made it worth it already.

It was 6 girls in total so there were 5 disappointed girls but one of those 5 is now at Elmhurst.  I don't know ref the boys as my DD was one of the 6 Y8 girls last year up at WL for Final days.  I think there may be as many as 3 Y9 girls places possibly available at Elmhurst for this coming September but I also know they don't always fill the spaces if they don't see exactly what it is they're looking for.

I do remember last year someone saying that white lodge buy bunk beds if they really like more than the space they have available

I had a student auditon yesterday in Birmingham for mids and white lodge and they told them there that they had 2 spaces available. I assumed it was 2 girls spaces for year 8 ?

Just reading everyone's posts- wow! Such a small number of places for anything higher than yr7- well done to the DC who are lucky enough to secure a place- exciting, but very anxious times! Looking forward to hearing of some success stories soon!
