Dance Auditions & Open Casting Calls

Dancer's foot

We post all the details of current dance auditions and open casting calls here as soon as we have them.

First, we have some general tips for dance audition success, some of which are obvious and just reminders and some of which could make the difference between getting a call back and never hearing from the casting team again...

So if you're serious about a career in dance, read them now...

Our tips for winning the part at your dance audition:-

  • Do what you've been asked / rehearsed to do - casting directors can get really annoyed if you suddenly announce that you're going to do something completely different in the vain hope that it will get you noticed.  You'll get noticed all right, but for all the wrong reasons, so fight the temptation to 'stand out'.  If you've been asked to do a specific routine to a specific piece of music, just do that

  • However, if you've been asked to prepare a routine of your own choosing and to a music track that you can pick, please don't perform a routine that you've copied directly from a well known star.  Casting directors get very bored when, for the twentieth time that day, somebody stands in front of them and announces "I'm going to do my interpretation of Beyonce's Single Ladies".  They'll be shouting "NEXT!" before you've done the first three steps.  Make sure you choose a track that's not massively well known and choreograph your own original routine to it
  • Always turn up on time, well organized and with all the dancewear / shoes that you've been specifically asked to bring

  • It's a good idea to also bring several spare pairs of socks and shoes (if you have them)

  • Make sure you've got sensible warm jogging pants and a sweatshirt to put on over your dance gear - there's usually a lot of hanging about at auditions and if you warm up and then get delayed, you'll need to cover up for a while

  • Bananas, energy bars and loads of water are a must in your kit bag - not all dance auditions provide supplies so make sure you've got enough of your own to keep your energy levels up and keep well hydrated

  • And remember, casting directors know exactly what they are looking for and know it when they see it.  If you don't get called back, don't get disheartened.  Just keep going, keep your body in tip-top condition and keep choregraphing your own stuff.

MALE AND FEMALE DANCERS must be proficient in jazz and ballet. Pointe work is a plus but not required for Female Dancers. Male and Female Dancers will be taught a song as part of the audition. There is no need to prepare vocal material. Voice quality is not as important as the ability to sing and dance at the same time.

MALE AND FEMALE VOCALISTS: Seeking strong singers for a diverse ensemble vocal group. Must have great voice and style with a wide vocal range, be proficient at singing close harmony and able to move well. Bring sheet music for an up-tempo song and a ballad in your own key that best exemplifies your natural style.   No hard-edged rock and nothing too legit, but solid, clean, expressive singing in the traditional style of the Christmas Spectacular.  Pitch, accuracy, and lyric clarity a must.  No recorded music is allowed. Be prepared to move.

GIRLS (CLARA) must be between 10 and 14 years old and be 4'10" and under. All GIRLS must be strong in ballet, able to work en pointe (having had at least once year of experience en pointe). They must bring their pointe shoes with them to audition. There will be no exceptions.

LITTLE PEOPLE PERFORMERS must be adults under 4'10" tall, agile, move well to music and be able to project their voice and personality.
