Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Hello everyone, Was just wondering if anyone has DC currently training who struggle with nerves when it comes to singing? My DD has had more of a dance background so singing is relatively new for her, she can hold a tune but is just so nervous to sing in front of people which is obviously stressing...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

They certainly gave us alot of sleepness nights and anxiety, praying for that call or letter every day but are an amazing place to train.

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Hi there, can I please ask anybody who has had their DD go through to the Bird degree from the reserve list, at what point did you hear this news? My DD started on Foundation as she requested this as still on Degree reserve and they swapped her course 2 days in - So glad we decided to ask to do fou...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Not sure if this year’s letter said it or not so was a panicked friend who is now very happy she is still on the reserve list! Do they hugely over subscribe the reserve list at Bird as that is the only one I seem to read about, you don’t hear much about the Performers reserve list so wondered if the...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

That’s what I said to check but apparently it’s not, which is what surprised me. Morning, I believe we may have received the same email yesterday. DD also auditioned in January. The email, however is not from Bird but from Greenwich university so I’m wandering if UCAS are updating and have to class...

Re: Help - disastrous Easter school experience!

A friend of mines DD age about 13 went to Blackpool on a Summer intensive and she was very upset and got her mom to come up and stay with her. She is a very strong talented girl and I think it was just her age. Every child has their own strengths and weaknesses. My DD is a good dancer but still feel...

Re: Btec extended diplomas

My DD did the extended diploma in MT and got D*D*D* which is equivalent to 3 A levels at A* Both ways give you 168 UCAS points The subject does not come into it, just the marks. There is a guide if you google to compare the grades. I think some Unis may feel A levels are more academic so if you do t...

Re: Btec extended diplomas

My daughter is in year 9. Reading posts on this forum have made me think about options other than staying in at her present school for sixth form after GCSEs. One option is to stay where she is, continue at her current dance school, and take Alevels (one of which could be replaced with a one A leve...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

Huge well done to everyone with offers and/or going through this gruelling audition process! What resilience! There must be a lot of movement from reserve lists quite late on. DDs friend was offered Urdang and Performers on the day during her interview and has three other offers too - so several pl...

Re: Auditioning for Sept 2019

For those with a child on the reserve at Bird you can ring around May and they will tell you where about you are on the list but only top half, bottom half etc... They wont give you a number. The degree reserve is longer as they take on and have more degree applicants. Those on the lists get the off...
