Claude_Catastrophique Posted September 26, 2011 Report Share Posted September 26, 2011 As promised I will tell you the whole story here I arrived late. I wanted to arrive more than an hour earlier to find the place, to eat and drink something before the audition but no, trains were late, I missed the Intercity because my Regional train was late. The Intercity I took afterwards was late too and the taxi was blocked in the city because of fashion week. I called them (they had a specific number for such reasons so I guess I am not the first and only one to arrive late). I had to be there at 10 am to get my number, I arrived at 10 29, one minute before the audition started *phew* Thank Good the were in the hall distributing numbers and since I changed in the train toilet, I made it in time into the classroom. As you can imagine, I did very bad, extremly bad, I was still trembling from running (at least I was warmed up ). We did very easy exercises, just a few at the barre and we were always interrupted to answer theorical question (e.g. How many kinds of grand battements do you know? What stretches would you do with kids for their feet? How exactly works the coordination of the arm with the legs in grand plié when doing the port de bras en dedans? How is this position/step called?) Not really difficult question but when you are standing there nervouse you will have blackouts and things Anyway. I would have kicked me out but obviously they were satisfied with my "performance" in class and I was invited to the interview. This one went good (I think so...). They asked me question like Why have you chosen us? Did you work with pianists? Have you danced professionally? What was the teacher who impressed you the most and why? Well, now I am waiting for them to call me. I really loved the place. I think if a Spaceship would land in their courtyard, the aliens would think that the human race is slim, long legged with a long neck and females are born with a bun, warm ups are the normal uniform and everyone is extremely well educated. It was like being on another planet - planet ballet! Quote Link to comment
