My first thing that I love about dance is meeting new friends at conventions and other classes. It is very nice to have dance friends that you meet around the community so you can have trust and respect for your fellow dancers, and so you can be more trust worthy if you have to partner. Another thing is how to go into an audition.
Before an audition make sure to drink water! Also don’t forget to eat! When you go into an audition be sure to not talk to your friends. It may seem like the teacher isn’t watching, but they always make sure that the kids they pick are good listeners, have respect and they don’t talk while the teacher is talking. Always go full out and try your hardest no matter what. Be ready for a challenge. Always say thank you to your instructor when your done.
To prepare for a photoshoot, make sure you are warmed up and stretched before the photshoot starts. The photographer doesn’t want to wait for you to stretch. Have a couple of poses and jumps and ideas before hand so you can jump right into taking photos. Bring water and snacks!! Throughout the photoshoot, you may get hungry or thirsty. So put some water bottles and little snacks in your bag. I normally bring water bottles, granola bars, protein bars, and a couple other snacks like that.
Ahhh my other favorite thing about dance is the GLITTER!!! Anything that sparkles makes me happy! Hair glitter, rhinestones, sequins, glittery makeup, you name it!!! My costumes are normally loaded with glitter, rhinestones, and sparkles unless the choreographer has stated otherwise.
