    Hey y'll! I'm auditioning for the remake of the film "FOOTLOOSE" and they require you to send in a dance audition - and a formal audition. I have uploaded the dancing part onto youtube and just wanted to share it with you guys!



    PS. I might take out the Janet part - not sure if it's needed.

    Hrm. Well you need to use more of the floor.

    You also do this one motion with your arms on the inside of your thighs that is... very repetitive. I wold consider adding some jazz elements in, as well as a jump or two maybe. even if it's just a 360 or something. Just to show an ability.

    You show little to no extension throughout. As an audition it's not terribly... audition worthy. You need to highlight as many skills as you can in the 4 minutes you are allotted. You repeat the same motions over and over again.

    I would suggest choreographing something shorter if that is allowed, show extension, throw in a pirouette maybe foutes (Spelling> accent?). Maybe a step ball change even. Just show that you know the basics. You have to be more aware of lines, and how it looks to the viewer, not only how it feels to you.

    And be bigger. Remember this is a performance. Look at the camera/auditioner, smile, don't stare at the floor. make all your motions sure and big.

    ...well, it's nice to watch, but for the movie, huh?...when I worked at NYU, I had Tisch School of the Arts dancers doing back flips for the part...

    ...just letting you know what the competition is going to be like...

    umm, are there criteria? if this is a commercial dance film, i imagine talent scouts and casting directors are looking for flash, i.e., switch leads, scorpions, 8 turns en pointe, etc.... you're a decent mover, but you're not really "dancing" in terms of what i imagine they're looking for. furthermore, you're loose in your technique: you need to watch your shoulders, you're not holding your core, and you're hips are all over the place. i don't say this to be mean, but as someone who worked in the industry for a bit i can't say that this is what they're look for when they can have people who have been dancing since they were two

    I'm sure there are A LOT of people that are much more experienced than I am, and that's perfectly fine (and actually awesome), but I did not go to a dance school and basically on musical sets, they teach you everything, so I'm sure whoever gets the part will have lots to learn from!

    They are looking for people who can do basic dance moves - and as I previously mentioned, I am not very good with coming up with choreography - however, when following choreography, I am pretty decent. I'm also a very fast learners, so that's a plus hahah. So we will see! So exciting!

    But thank you everyone for your inputs! Ur the best!
