Would love to hear your experience with the development team Yorkshire pudding! Would hugely help me to make an informed decisionYorkshirepudding wrote:We have experience in the development team but left for a variety of reasons including feeling it was extremely expensive for what it was. My view is that the elite team is a rather different thing and much better value. Good luck with whatever you decide.
I think one of the reasons you may be struggling for information is that, until this round of auditions, there was only a Development Team in Leeds / Harrogate. The others are new and, from what I have gathered on here, look to be organised differently. It looks like a new venture to everyone.
I have signed my DD up for the Manchester development team and super excited for her to start as I feel it's just what she needs. £83 per month I feel us reasonable for 2.5 hours training each week. I for one can't wait for her to get started
Following initial email of being successful for development team. I diddent hear anything so I emailed them and they then forwarded me an email with links to sign DD up of which I did. Not heard anything since thobarmby1234 wrote:Hi Have ypu received any further emails since being told your DD has been successful. Our last correspondence was a few weeks ago.
My two auditioned in london. It was second time, they didnt get through last year. This time only my son got a recall, but they both got through to development team. I've spoken to them in phone (over various discrepancy in emails ect over monthly cost )It was confirmed to me that its £85 for London. Still a huge amount, double for me gutted they don't do a siblings discount. They have set up Facebook pages for London development team, and assuming they have them for all the various teams x
I'm not sure where you got your info from curiousdancemum, but this does not apply to the London Elite Team. They do not receive or pay for weekly training. They just have the monthly fee which covers 5 weeks of training (last year this was 5 days, but this year each workshop is 4 days but for an hour longer). There are additional masterclasses which are offered throughout the year at a cost, but these are optional. The Development Team in London also don't have weekly training, their training runs alongside the Elite teams in the holidays, but only for 3 days not 4.
