   I believe they were told about a week after the auditions. Probably won't help to go by people experiences in previous years unfortunately, as the new staff have changed things quite a bit.

   Thats good if they get them out quicker this year. Last year they took 3 weeks and we got the results on the last day of this term.

   Year 7 girls were told the staff were having discussions fri/mon so hopefully letters out by the end of next week. Hopefully!

I was a little confused by the grouping on Tuesday, groups 1 and 2 only contained only year 7 candidates but group 3 seemed to contain the students going for places in years 8+ and also some year 7 candidates.

I can only assume to class content was more difficult to be appropriate for the older children but surely this would be a disadvantage for the year 7 candidates? or maybe the class content was the same regardless of year? Just curious?

Good luck to everyone waiting.

Regards,

My daughter was in group 3 as a year 8 entry. She thinks the audition was aimed quite low to accomodate the year 7 intakes.

Personally I think the technical ability was not in question really as they all got a recall. Perhaps they were just looking for the 'star quality' and the burning desire to perform?

Fingers and toes crossed for everyone who auditioned....

   Heard some fantastic news.

My friends daughter was disappointed not to get to finals at WL, but was offered full MDS funding for year 7 intake at Elmhurst.

Maybe just sometimes, even the elite get it wrong!!!

Makes you want to laugh out loud!! ( and cry )...

Well at least the emotional rollercoaster is over for yet another family - for the time being...

   Sadly it was a no for us from the scholarship round at Elmhurst in the post yesterday, but to balance that we had an offer from Tring for Theatre Arts (not the course my son wanted at this stage) and a wonderful funded offer from Hammond to balance all that. So we are absolutely delighted that our son will be at last able to fulfill his dream of going to a vocational school this September.

This audition process has been the most exhausting but exciting thing to go through with him and despite the agony of the waiting (enough to turn the most sane into emotional wrecks), I wouldn't have missed going through it with him for the world!

Thank you to all those on the forum who have offered support & encouragement along the way and I am especially sending good vibes to those of you still waiting for results.

We will be very sorry to say goodbye to many of the good friends we have made along the way at Elmhurst PVP's next term, but I am sure our paths will cross again as our dancing children progress through their training?

All the very best for those still waiting for results, wont be long now!

Mum of boy dancer

   What a lovely message Gibbon256. Congratulations to your Son I am sure he will flourish in his new environment.

It was a very excited house for us yesterday as my daughter received an offer of a place for Y7 at Elmhurst. It was the school she has always dreamed of attending and she is still leaping around the house this morning!

The process of auditions has been very stressful (well for me anyway, she has taken it all in her stride) but I am sure it is only a taste of things to come and a very small step along a long rocky road!

Best wishes,

Lots and lots of luck to everyone still waiting, will be so glad when this is all over.

   Many thanks for all the good wishes on the forum & PM's peeps, my son has had them all read out for him and is still beaming!

Special congratulations to Bankcrupt Mum, as we have shared our anxieties on the waiting front together and i am soooooo very pleased that we can both celebrate in our children's success.

Let us know how go on Daisybell

Finally, break a leg to the 3 Elmhurst PVP children who are performing at The Lowry over the weekend in BRB's Sylvia, we are going to see a special little dot tonight and we just cant wait to see her on that stage amongst such an exciting & talented company!

Kindest regards

   We have just got back from holiday but we found out whilst we were away that my DD did not make it through the Elmhurst audition. She was very upset but on the same day we found out that Hammond offered her a very generous bursary!

The whole audition process for us is now thankfully over and we can focus on Hammond for a while.

She is still sad she did not make it through the final Elmhust audition but is so pleased to go to a school where she will be dancing during the day!!!

We now have to work nout the best routes for repeated journeys from the South Coast to Chester!!!!!

   Hi Bankcrupt_mum!

Sent you a pm!
Well at long last we got Central result this morning...waiting list!
Cant really cry or cheer with that result but it wasn't a no!

So at least now she can plan for September and if we end up hearing back from Central it will be a bonus

These auditions started back in November and I can say it has been one of the toughest times we've had.
I am full of admiration for my DD, she has taken it all on the chin really...the highs and the lows! But I guess thats how you have to be in the dancing world.

So we will sit down tonight and try to make up our minds which school is the best option for her, tricky as they all differ in one way or another.

Thankyou to everyone who has been such a support over this, especially HeatherL, Bankcrupt_mum and spooky!

Wishing your DD's many lovely happy days in the new schools they go to in September, I'm sure they will have a great time.

Daisybell

   Congratulations to your son, I'm sure he will be very happy at Hammond. The school has a great atmosphere and the pupils seem to thrive and develop really well in their care.
