THE AUDITION: PREPARING PROPERLY AND UNDERSTANDING HOW TO APPROACH IT
Sunday, November 29
1-2:15pm Pacific/4-5:15pm Eastern
Julie Friedrich, Instructor
*Forty-five minute presentation, Thirty-minute Q&A
You may have been through many auditions, or you might still be anticipating your first. Regardless of where you find yourself in your experience level, there are many things you need to know to do your best. Although many auditions have much in common, each one is also uniquely different. Therefore, the more you understand an audition from an insider’s view (Julie has conducted many), the less stressful it will be and the less you’ll encounter surprises that can ‘throw you for a loop.’
Julie will cover how to approach ballet and modern classes in auditions (most will require both, especially those for college). You’ll learn how to rehearse your solo piece so you’ll be at an optimum level to perform it and make the strongest impression. Nerves can be your worst enemy – Julie will help you develop strategies to counter this challenge so that you’ll be able to present your best self.
No matter what the audition looks like, if it’s for a college audition or one for a summer program, conducted in-person or virtually, we will ensure you know what to expect. You’ll be ready physically and mentally to be successful. With Julie’s expert guidance, you will ‘rock’ that next audition.
