I have set aside this post to keep all the bad audition. It doesn't seem appropriate glorifying them with there own individual post. These are the mistakes I hope not to repeat.
Lines Ballet Auditions
A Disaster...... They rented a studio too small to accommodated the size of the audition. We were subject to a cramped floor barre. I had no center; I wasn't warm; I could barely be seen; and my shoes kept slipping off. It was a Mess! I was cut after the first round. I comforted my discouragement with the fact that every girl remaining was at least 5'6''. However, I didn't let one bad audition spoil the rest. As I left the audition I walked away tall (despite my 5'4'' stature).
Nashville Ballet Auditions
I don't know what is my deal with Nashville Ballet. Its like my subconscious doesn't want to dance with them. I felt like this year would be better. I would return to the audition making them think oh that girl who fell last year has improved so much, but no. Instead I became the girl who dances well at barre then falls apart at center. I blanked during the petite allegro combo right in front of the judges. It was miserable. The whole class I was trying to get into it, but I felt as if I had bricks tied to my feet. Oh whoa is me. Although, There were no cut I left the auditions knowing I wasn't going to be contacted. It was hard to walk away tall when all I wanted to do was get home and cry into my pillow.
