Total Rejection


Recommended Posts

Hii. I know there's a lot of posts about auditioning but my first audition for dancing school is coming up and I'm so scared, it's ridiculous. Yeah sure it's normal to be nervous and all but I hate being 'rejected', turned away or even just the feeling that I've 'let people down'.


How do I, ahem, 'cope' with being turned away from colleges??

Oh, that's an easy one, I've been THERE! Yell, swear, kick the furniture about, ascribe interesting ancestry to the Admissions Department personnel! :P

When I told my teacher I'd been rejected by a program, he simply replied, shocked "Oh really?" and when I nodded, said "well, stuff them!" I thought this was quite amusing

I'd have to agree, just put it behind you. My friend auditioned for SAB two years in a row and didn't get in. Instead of moping she decided to work harder and she got in this year! So I'd either put it in the past or work harder and try again. :yes:

*knock knock!* 6 years too old here...


I just went through the whole "go to NYC and audition for MFA in Acting programs" thing last weekend. After a lot of dealing with really rude individuals, emotional trauma, and being told I need more life experience before grad school, I fell into the standard funk: stay in bed and watch M*A*S*H while eating Hershey's bars for a few days. And not talking to anyone.

Not a good idea. At all.

While I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, I think some of the best advice I've been given is to just step back, take a breath, and say you'll try again. And THEY are the ones with the problem, not you!!! .... just kidding. All you can really do is keep working hard, keep learning, and go for it again. Or so I've been told... :yes:

This is one of my favorite quotes and I think it fits the situation rather well: "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow'." (Mary Anne Radmacher)
