Has anyone had experience with sending an audition video (for the year-round, pre-professional program), and being asked to an in-person audition at TWBS?

Does anyone know about the quality of instruction and hours spent on technique / conditioning for PTPB? How many of the girls move through to PTPA? Ages of the girls in both groups?

thanks

My DD has been accepted in TWSB, commencing  early September this year, but we are struggling with finding accommodation for her..  Is there a spot on this forum where you can look for accommodation, or am I able to post here?? Many thanks

Hi, Mumofthree.  My daughter is entering her second year of PTP.  Our roommate situation is confirmed (waiting for final confirmation on lease) but my DD may know of people looking.  I will ask her.  I assume you have contacted Donna Glover already...?  She is a great resource.  

Are you looking for a roommate for your daughter, or just for a good recommendation for accommodations?  I highly recommend Vaughan Place for an apartment.  New, clean, safe, great location, and the staff very easy to work with.  Are there any other specific questions you have?

Oh, and I just remembered, there is also Adams View Apartments.  Last summer I did look there and they were nice, but we ended up going with Vaughan.  So I can't really comment on Adams as much as Vaughan.  Adams is closer than Vaughan to the Joe,  which is where PTP B has their classes in the evening.  That is something to think about, with respect to walking home in the evening.  It is a generally safe area, but it is dark walking home once the time change happens in October.

Hi,  thank you for above comments.  I shall take a look at the Adams View Apartments. 

I have contacted Donna and we are awaiting to see what she can come up with..  I am starting to stress just a little as Miss 17 arrives in USA next Sunday (can stay with a friend for a few days) and I am here in Australia.. Trying to decide if I need to fly over to help her out, or have a lovely friend accompany her (friend kindly offered to help), but it seems like a HUGE ask...  This accommodation finding task is super hard work from the other side of the world...  Thank You again and I shall keep my fingers crossed that it shall all work out within the week :):)
