Recommended Posts

Please someone correct me if I'm wrong or explain what I've over looked, but is it me or is there no date for Birmingham combined WL+MA audition?? Thanks ????

Hi Lema, I think  they may have just mis-labelled the Birmingham second date - it should probably be Jnr not Snr with MA instead of SA as the SAs are the day before and WL would normally be WL / MA.  Worth checking with them but I bet it's the 21st for WL / MA :)

Oh! It's happening! And it's soon! Not sure why I'm nervous more then my DD. I thought she'll be doing her exercises madly every day through our holiday but she didn't! Is that normal? Not sure, maybe she needed a rest from it all... She exercised every 2 or 3 days. Anyway, back to our ballet routine now! I've missed the forum ;-)

DD is 10 and would really like to audition for RB.  I don't think that she would stand much chance of getting in but she would like to go just for the experience.  Am I right in thinking that she is too old for JA now and would audition for MA? Also that there is no MA in Leeds?

If she is going into year 6 then yes audition for MA and WL. It's a good experience whatever the outcome. Northern MAs are Manchester and Newcastle.

When they say the forms are now online I think they mean the application forms are now available online, presumably to be printed out and sent off as normal.

Glad nobody else can see the form, I thought I was being really dense! :-D

So with the dates of auditions for the Upper School, is there just one day and it all happens for everyone then, apart from international candidates? I am also wondering how many there usually are in each audition group? Don't know if any of your DC have experience of this?

The applications are online only from now on apparently?

I have just had a look and Summer School applications are done as said and are actually on-line . I have only ever had to do one other application like this before and had a nightmare uploading photos onto it . You cannot see what is required beforehand as it won't let you look what comes next without filling in the information on that page first . Maybe when someone has filled it in you might share the format with technophobes like me .

, I spent ages on it this evening! I just wanted to see what photos are required and what information I need to gather, without actually applying, but as the above post says, you can't see the next page until all the boxes are filled and it won't allow dummy answers either! I spent ages filling in every box ( and re-doing it when it didn't like my answers!) Eventually got most of it done and clicked the 'next' button to move onto the page with the photos on only to be timed out and sent back to the start. Online application forms now get my vote for room 101, but that's a whole different thread!

Usually some audition dates at other centres around country so Birmingham this year very early January. Other centres not sure of dates. London audition usually towards end of January, running group after group from about 9.30 am. Looked to be around 30 in groups last year at London audition and does include some international students.

Me too Celb

Had to fill the whole form in just to find what photos were required!

Next job to get them taken with no falling out with my daughter!

At least they won't all need printing out.

What photos were needed last year? (Hope it's about Y7 entry, not summer school :-) ). Is there an old link to last years applications somewhere? Or are the photos same like the photos needed for Elmhurst? It looks like they need to be ready on my computer before I start the application form.

I've just had confirmation that details of photo requirements for summer schools will be on the website within a few days. We're not at audition stage yet but I suspect the same might apply to other applications? Hth

On line sounds like a nightmare! Especially the photos, not looking forward to that! So if the applications are purely on line, does that do away with the need to get a signature of approval from your dc's current dance school/ teacher?
