With Dance Company Auditions coming up at Studio 180 Dance, it’s the perfect time to brush up on your choreography techniques. Specifically for auditioning, you want to show off your strengths, thoughtfulness and creativity. Although it is important to stay true to yourself and take risks, we don't recommend attempting movement that you have not yet fully mastered. Here are few tips to help guide you on the right path:
1. Be sure to choose music that is appropriate for that specific audition (for example, don't perform a musical theatre piece for a ballet company audition!) Be committed to your music-make sure it inspires and excites you and allows your ideas to run freely. Your investment in the choreography and it's execution will shine through in your audition.
2. Definitely include tricks or technically advanced movement (for example acro, leaps, drops or fouette turns) that you are confident you will execute successfully-an audition is the time for you to show off! However, also be sure to give consideration to transitions, fluidity and the basics; judges will be looking for unique perspectives, originality, and a fairly high level of mature understanding of choreography and all that is required to create a dance. We know how much it takes to honestly create and perform a dance and want to see that you do too.
3. Understand your intention, as it applies to your selected music and as it was when creating your piece of choreography. Then decide on the best facial expression to represent that intention and practice using it every time you rehearse. Your expression is incredibly important, especially when the judges wont know your thought process behind your choreography; help them understand your ideas and see your greatness by using, practicing and performing with expression!
4. Work hard to make your piece memorable. This doesn't necessarily mean doing something that may alienate or offend the judges, but think outside the box. Listen to undertones in the music that could inspire unexpected movement and show your understanding of music and its counts. Choose music that is different, new and exciting; consider using covers of mainstream songs, or songs that we don't hear on the radio every day. Set yourself apart from the others and work to make your piece something the judges won't forget!
5. If you get stuck, try improv! Listen to your chosen song, set no boundaries,dance around in your room and see what happens! Often unusual movements become unique and exciting to both the dancer and the audience.
6. If you are not happy with one part of your dance or it feels rigid, take it out and re-choreograph that section. You don’t want to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable because you want to be confident delivering the choreography. Similarly, if it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't the right choice for that piece-trust your instincts!
7. Finally, have fun! Judges love this part of an audition because they have the opportunity to learn about you, your ideas and creativity, and often see things they were unable to pick up during the other requirements of the audition. If you're having fun, committed and have put in the hard work, success it at your doorstep!
