Every autumn half term Ballet Boost hold a one day workshop in audition technique. These are separated into 3 levels aimed at Lower school entry, Upper school entry and the approach to Company Auditions.

Many young dancers get so wrapped up in the technical aspects of Ballet and forget that to secure that precious place at a Vocational School or Associate program can be a nerve wracking experience that can often undermine all their hard work!

It takes practice and knowledge of what these places are looking for to help in this process.

This course is formed of two ballet classes. The 11am class is full of useful advice, both technical and artistic. Plus the information on what elements are likely to be included (schools often change their criteria) and simple factors such as their hair style or choice of leotard and which one suits that child best etc.

The most important element of this course is that they will have a mock audition after lunch given by a guest teacher with vast knowledge of the audition process.

Then each attendee will receive personal, written feedback, to help them on their way.

This day is also exceedingly useful for those already at vocational school who wish to do well in assessments and performances, and is fundamentally the key to performing well as a professional. This is an integral part of life as a dancer. They need to understand that it is far more than just their physicality. Presence, musicality and a good ‘dancers’ mind are crucial to success too.
