TIPS AND ADVICE (From Principal Joanna Shaw and Student T-ala)

  • Just wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. A top and leggings/tights are the most popular attire to wear
  • You won’t need to prepare anything in advance- all the tasks are set during the audition day
  • The panel are look for ‘good work ethic’ and the desire to push your self and step outside of your comfort zone
  • Make sure that you remain engaged and responsive at all times- this is something that the panel really look out for
  • The panel are just as interested in natural potential (without previous experience) as they are in dancers that have had a lot of previous dance training
