Here are some valuable tips, as you prepare:
Have a good attitude
If you’re having a good time at the audition, it will reflect in your performance.
If you’re feeling nervous or uncomfortable, just know that most everyone else is too! The Casting team wants you to have fun, and to just give it your best shot.
Not everyone has to be a dancer, but everyone does have to have positive energy and a smile.
Be on time…or even a little early
Auditions begin at the advertised time, and usually you will not be allowed to join if you arrive late.
It’s a good idea to arrive a little early, but no more than one hour prior to the advertised audition time.
Know where to go
Research the audition venue location before you leave home. Be prepared in advance, so you don’t get lost or stressed out.
Know what to wear
Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to dance and move: running or basketball shorts, T-shirts or athletic shirts, yoga pants or dance attire.
Avoid high heels, short skirts and dresses, and tight or restrictive clothing.
It is best to bring a pair of shoes that you plan to wear, and change into them upon arrival. Many studios don’t allow street shoes on their dance floors.
Bring water and a snack
Bring a large bottle of water and a towel. You will sweat and you will get thirsty. (You will be happy to have water on hand!)
You may also want to bring a small snack.
Auditions can be a few hours in length and sustenance will help.
Be mindful of the Disney Look
While it is not necessary to abide by these guidelines when attending an audition, a good first impression can go a long way. Showing up to audition in your pajamas is probably not the best idea.
