mouse Posted January 1, 2006 Report Share Posted January 1, 2006 Hi! My son is suppose to audition for the Staatballet Berlin in exactly a week. It will be his first "official" company audition. He's been approached with professional offers before, but never as a result of a "real" company audition. I used this thread for inital information. The date and time was listed after following the links suggested. (Thanks to all who contributed!) My son and I went to the company's very nice website. The audition doesn't seem to be listed ANYWHERE on the website. A telephone was definitely needed. Although I speak "broken German", I didn't trust this "skill" enough to actually make the international call. I had a German friend call. She confirmed the date and time. She was told to fax his resume. She said that we would and that we would also send an email to the company using the "info" address. Immediately, we faxed the information and sent the message. I wish we'd thought of the questions we're facing now, but we didn't. I wish my friend were in town before January 8, but she isn't. We booked his airline ticket. We made his hotel reservation. All these things happened on December 20. We haven't heard a word in response. This might be quite normal. We don't know. Perhaps a returned email might have been sent if it weren't during the Christmas holiday? Who knows? The real question is this: HOW MUCH DOES A COMPANY AUDITION COST? I have no idea how much money to send with him! The audition is on a Sunday. Banks won't be open. My son has traveled for dance to Europe and the Far East before. I'm sure he'd manage to find an ATM or figure out how to get a cash advance using a credit card at a US based hotel, but it would sure be nice to anticipate the funds before costly services fees were needed in order to cover the expenses! Also, is there anything else he ought to know before leaving the US? Does anyone have any advice for him as he faces this opportunity? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
