Audition Season

Audition season officially began for me today as I attended my very first audition of the year. As numbers are pinned onto leotards and judges sort through application papers, it is quite nerve wracking. At my age, directors are looking beyond summer intensive acceptance, and they are taking company positions into consideration…

You only have one class to show the judges what you can do. That one class might be worth major scholarship money to pay for an entire summer of training, and it can give you a reputation for a potential job! As stressful as it can be, it is so neat to take master classes from different ballet directors, and I love experiencing their unique teaching style. I am so grateful that they take so much time to tour around the country to host these auditions. In the end, I try not to worry about the results or my future as a dancer because I know that God has a plan for me. If this is what I am meant to do, I will be at the right company at the right time… It will all work out how it is suppose to. Good luck to all of my readers who are auditioning this season!

    1. Thank you!
      I am auditioning for a variety of different ballets all throughout the month of January, so I hope I can put my best foot forward in each of them. I really appreciate your encouragement, and I hope that you have a wonderful week!

    1. That is so sweet of you, Kaelyn! I feel like the auditions went well for me this weekend, and it will be interesting to receive my letters back from the companies to find out how I really did. There were some great dancers who auditioned as well, so I am hoping for the best! πŸ™‚
