Toronto Dance Audition Behind The Scenes
On Friday, we held a dance audition in Toronto for my new BDX Street Team. Great turnout of hot, sexy dancers! Everyone was ready to learn, support every dancer in the room and finally show their stuff.
I started with an introduction and shared the purpose of the dance audition. Looking for dancers who fit the inviting energy and positive dynamic of Byfield Dance Experience.
We discussed how we only need so many dancers who are at a strong level in terms of dance technique and performance. As much as I’d love to accept everyone on the team, not all will make the cut. And that’s ok, that’s just the reality of how a dance audition works.
I introduced many of my BDX team behind the table who came to support, film, take photos and notes. The pressure was on- with 2 video cameras and 3 still cameras rolling!
Hip hop dance teachers Cartoon and Hollywood encouraged the group to dance with passion, pay attention to details and use opportunities to bring out their personality. These are important notes that not only apply to a dance audition, but to anytime you set foot in a dance class…
…because not only does it improve your game, but you also raise the bar and energy of everyone around you. Many dance auditions in Toronto can be stressful, but we proved that at BDX that pressure only makes you a better artist and performer.
It’s important to remember that when you’re at an audition, it’s not always about YOU. Don’t be selfish. Yes, dance your fullest and show what you have to offer. But by continuously encouraging your peers to achieve their fullest potential is a greater reward in itself.
Congratulations to everyone who came to audition, you should be tremendously proud of yourselves!
