As part of our new outreach project, we selected the lovely Caitlin Andrews to be interviewed about her recent audition endeavours. Caitlin is a 16 year old dance student from England.
WHAT DID YOU AUDITION FOR?
I auditioned for the Chrysanthemums Pantomime 2020 in Wirral.
WAS IT YOUR FIRST TIME AUDITIONING FOR THAT PARTICULAR OPPORTUNITY?
No it wasn’t. I had been in this particular production for the past 6 years.
WHAT WAS THE APPLICATION PROCESS LIKE?
The application was simple, they asked for our dance school, plus height, age, grades etc.
WERE YOU GIVEN SUFFICIENT INFORMATION BEFORE THE DAY?
The only information I was given was where the audition was held and the specific times for each age group.
WHAT WAS THE AUDITION DAY LIKE?
The day was really busy as it was held in a church hall, meaning the waiting room was really crammed! The teachers were really kind, plus it for easier for me as one of the teachers I already knew as my contemporary and commercial teacher. I got on with the other auditionees well, some were really talented dancers, whereas some dancers stood out due to their choice of clothing (bright and colourful!).
WHAT WAS THE LEVEL OF STANDARD?
Some parts of the audition were easy and some weren’t so much. For example, the contemporary sequence was easier than the voguing to me. However, this preference may have been different for other people.
Thanks goes to Caitlin for her wonderful answers and contributions. Audition Quest wishes her the very best of luck with her future dancing endeavours.
