Open Class As Audition


Recommended Posts

Hi! So, I am auditioning for an SI at Peridance but I couldn't make the audition date so instead I took the option of taking an open class as an audition. The class would be an intermediate ballet class with pointe afterwards. I was just wondering how I could stand out (if possible). Will it be crowded (the class is in the morning). What should I expect? This is my first time auditioning for anything and my first time taking an open class. Also, would it be appropriate to take other open classes there or should I only do that after I audition? Sorry for so many questions, I'm just really nervous :ermm: Thank you so much! :grinning:

I can't tell you if the class will be crowded or not, but what you should expect is that it is a class. All auditions are just classes. :) You will stand out by being very well groomed and looking like you are happy to be there and can't wait to learn anything and everything that you can! A positive attitude, an immediate response to corrections, being very focused and paying attention to learning the combinations and hearing all of the corrections, and not being afraid to show that you love to dance!!!


As for taking open classes there, that is not up to anyone here. That depends on your current training and school and how your teacher would feel about it. If you feel that you need more classes than you are getting, talk to your teacher about taking open classes.
