    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Hey,

    I've been meaning to post here all week (as i usurped helpful advice!) but I just got back from the auditions and whew that was intense.

    So the rundown for these round of auditions (just in case you wanted to know).

    Separated into groups of about 50-60 (some seemed larger, some seemed smaller). We were taken outside the rehearsal building to learn our first movement combination. The dance steps consisted of: marching with juxtaposing arm movements, pas de bourre, kick ball change, some fun pivot steps with a kick thrown in during one of them, cross over, and a grapevine that led to a single pirrouette (they asked for a double if you could do it). After going over this for a bit, they took us into the actual rehearsal hall to dance for the casting director, show director, choreographers, and a few others. We did it once together with music (just upbeat piano versions of disney songs, nothing special.) Then the had us do it all together from one diagonal of the room to the others. They wanted to see how well we could travel while dancing. Then we went two by twos, with the show director telling you which wall to stand alongside as you went. The girls who taught us the combo danced it with us off to the side across the floor (very helpful). After everyone went, the choreographer, director, etc. huddled together and pulled an additional person or so that they wanted to see continue. The rest were sent home.

    Here is where the fun begins.

    Everyone was then taken into a bigger room and told to wait while they finished the first round of cuts. We filled out an audition form with our availability, they took our picture, etc. There were about 140 of us down from the 750 or so that auditioned.

    We were then taught a more advanced, non-traveling combination to a Spiderman song (random, I know). This one had a very "Celebration" feel to it at times. Dance steps in this one were: box steps, quick ball changes with faster foot work, kick leading into a single spin, kick out in second sweeping behind your body, kick ball change, traveling turn forward into a lunge, lean back, outside single pirrouette leading to a kick down into a lunge, and a few more high extension kicks. We then had a VERY long time to practice this while the disney folk took a lunch. Then we were called in 6 at a time to perform for even more disney folk. They had us do the combination twice in a row (exhausting! after already been practicing it for 2 hours or so).

    Then we were sent back to wait in the larger room until everyone had done the new combo twice. During this time, some people were pulled for face to try on wigs (alice, pete, and stepsister were the ones i saw), and make up tests were done (we only saw for snow white), scripts were read for alice and pete as well. Some girls had their height measured by a CM just to be sure what range they were in.

    At around 4:00 or so, they made more cuts. They divided the rest of the group into those who would go on and learn another dance (lyrics - for potential court dancers) and for those who would be considered for fuzzies and other roles.

    Hopefully this helps anyone who considers auditioning. I had an amazing experience for the most part at my first disney audition and look forward to doing it again. :-)

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    It was for disneyland. And yes, the second round of auditions was today. Today's grouping was the mixture of the new dancers/characters/actors that auditioned yesterday and passed as well as people who have previously worked in parades/entertainment/etc.

    Was it specifically for face characters? Or for the parade performers?
    Sounds amazing! A ton of dancing, though, eeep! =P

    Re: Disney Face Character Auditions

    Sounds like a lot of dancing! I thought Disneyland always had an audition for each thing like face characters, or atmosphere characters, or parade performers. They even make just face characters do all that dancing! Weird

    I love dancing, so I can't wait But that seems like a little much for the people they were considering for like face characters and atmosphere! I wish they would move the audition age back to 16!
