Song and dance Audition Tips and Techniques


Song Audition Tips and Techniques

i. Start by preparing a song (preferably two). Many times you may be asked to sing an upbeat song and a ballad.

ii. Find songs that are appropriate for your age and type of voice. Make sure it is a song that will show both your singing range and your character attributes. (Many Pop Songs are not good for audition pieces as they do not showcase the singing range of the performer.)

iii. Most directors of musical Theatre do not want you to sing a song from the show that you are auditioning for as your audition piece. Occasionally you will find that a Director may want a song from the show. Please check with the person taking your audition bookings whether it is OK or not to sing a song from the show.

iv. One of the best kids audition tips is to make sure the songs you choose are songs that you enjoy singing. This enjoyment will show through in your performance. We all do better at things we like to do.

v. Find sheet music for Broadway Musicals on the internet, or at a music store, book store or the library. If you are auditioning for a particular part in a musical it is a good idea to become familiar with the music which your character sings in the show... Even if you audition with another song, you'll have a basic idea just in case.

Dance Audition Tips and Techniques

  • i. Dance might also be a part of your audition. A worthwhile kids audition tip is to ask, if you can, about this before going to the audition. Should you need to dance, be sure to wear something you can move in. You might also want to bring a change of clothes just in case, and if you have been training...your dance shoes.
  • ii. If you have been taking dance lessons, and are putting this down on your resume, it would be a good idea to rehearse any solo routines that you have preformed just in case you are asked to do a little something.
  • iii. A great kids audition tip is to understand that many times the choreographer watching your audition is simply trying to see if a young person can move and if they are capable of picking up a routine. There are also many plays in which not every character is required to dance. Kids with very little training many times are cast for their natural ability to move.
  • iv. Don't worry about this too much...just do your best.

Web Series Auditions: Atlanta


6 of our Atlanta actors have been requested to audition for the upcoming web series "Livin Life".

The premise of the show is about a young black male, Kevin Jacobs, that has moved to Atlanta per his mother pushing him out of the house and urging him to go to college and find a job. Kevin's best friend, Bali, has convinced his parents to allow Kevin to rent out their summer home in Atlanta. However, Kevin quickly learns he won't be able to afford the rent alone and is obligated to get roommates. From there, the everyday struggles of a lazy college student with unwanted roommates begin to take place.

The client was casting for three roles. Bali- An energetic 19 year old male with no ambitions. His parents are wealthy, however he does not accept anything from them due to him resenting them for his upbringing. He is a freshman in college and not currently working. He has asked his parents to rent out their summer home to his best friend Kevin who has just moved to Atlanta.

Tasha- An independent, loud mouth, intelligent, ghetto, know it all. Tasha has been in school one year already. She is looking for a place to stay and has chosen to stay with Kevin in his new home. She does not know Kevin, she saw the posting for the house online. And finally for the role of Tommy- A nine year old smart Alec who lives next door and comes over uninvited anytime he so chooses. Although he is a smart guy, know it all and borderline inappropriate, he is tolerated because he gives great advice and is partially entertaining.

Our actors will be auditioning this week and next week for the new show! Good luck to all talent chosen to audition!

Self assessment and development in talent auditions


Most of us are “works in process.” Whether we realize it or not, learning occurs on a daily basis as a result of our personal and talent professional experiences. We tend to learn more from our mistakes or failures, however, than from our successes. Why? Failure often rocks our world. We reflect on, reexamine, and agonize over our mistakes, often vowing not to make them again. We ask ourselves the following questions:
• How did this happen?
• What did I do wrong?
• Why did I make this decision?
• What can I do differently in the future?
Success doesn’t have the same impact. Rarely do we reflect on the reasons for our successes – the conditions and sequence of decisions that resulted in our accomplishments. We triumph, congratulate ourselves, and move on without identifying the model knowledge and skills we applied or the steps in which we engaged. As a result, we are often unable to duplicate our accidental successes, for we don’t understand why they occurred.
