Tring 6th form auditions

Guest Autumn days

we have just had a letter about the Tring audition for 6th form and it says that some students are interviewed. I have already asked this about another school but wonder if there is any anecdotal evidence to suggest that it is only those that they are interested in that they interview? Has anyone been offered a place/funding final in previous years who was not interviewed?

 

Also, does it REALLY matter if you don't sing/play an instrument at 6th form level? Has anyone been offered a place/funding final if they have not done any of the optional things? 

 

thanks for all your help in this awful process!!

My dd was offered a funded place on Tring's sixth form dance course, but never played a musical instrument or sang at any of her auditions. If my memory serves me correctly, I think the interview part took place as part of the solos. I think the girls just answered a few brief questions either before or after they'd performed their solo. Nothing too formal. My dd also got kept back for physio assessment at the second Dada audition. Some did, some didn't.

Apologies if I have missed this elsewhere, but is it still the case at Tring that you audition for the 6th form dance course, and then get streamed into Classical or Non Classical at a later date?

 

Or have they now introduced an option to audition only for the Classical set?

I'm not absolutely sure if my memory serves me correctly, but on the last day of the CBA course last year we had a talk from Miss Rist and I think she said that everyone on the dance course will do a common 1st year at 6th form, and they will then specialise after that...

 

If anyone else was there and remembers exactly what she said then please can you help with this query :)

Yes...they all complete the same first year foundation course then choose ( with guidance ) to specialise in classical, jazz or contemporary for 2nd and 3rd years.

My dd is on the classical course now and loving it. Great place!
