DANCE/MOVEMENT AUDITION

  • A dance/movement audition must be booked by ALL senior cast auditionees.

HINTS & TIPS

  • Auditions are never as scary as you think they are going to be! But you can do things to make them slightly easier!

  • We guarantee that everyone on the panel has been in your shoes before and understands how you might be feeling.

  • Choose songs that you really enjoy and know well.

  • Sing in several different places before the audition day.

  • Sing to some other people before the day.

  • Wear comfortable clothes that you think you look good in.

  • Come into the audition with high energy ready to try anything new. (You may be asked to try something you think is silly, how you react to requests tells the panel about you as a potential cast member)

  • Show the audition panel your strengths and enjoy showing them. 

  • We are looking for members of a team who want to put on a great show!

  • We want you to shine!

  • ENJOY!
