    Re: parade of dreams/block party bash auditions!

    I went to last year's Block Party auditions and was sorely disappointed but then again I guess I'm not much of a dancer. I wanted to be in it so bad I got my hopes up too much.

    Be prepared for INTENSE dance routines, I think you have to do several of them.

    Block Party Bash was insane to watch. The energy level paired with the dancing, I'm surprised no one fell over! It was an amazing show!

    Depending on who they have running the auditions, it can either be the most fun thing ever or very disappointing.
    Make sure you're HYDRATED and have gotten in shape.

    I say go, I met fun people when I went last year. The audition is like OMG in the intensity of dancing but then if you've seen the parade you can expect that. But it is really hard if you're not a pro at dancing and don't have any experience. My best friend is in it so I know how it goes.

    The first round of dancing auditions I went to really didn't seem that intense to me. I knew I was a bad dancer and I couldn't pull it off too well but the moves were straight forward after practicing for a while and it's pretty much a "you can do them or you can't". The guy who watched us and passed us or not is just watching you trying to picture if you're someone he'd want to see dancing down the street in a Disney parade at that point. The harder dancing and form judging isn't until the later rounds.

    It's probably a smaller audition just to fill in some empty spots. POD was just recast at the start of this month, so there's probably some openings, but not a whole lot. Block Party Bash was 7 days/week, then went down to 5 days, and now runs 3 days. So their casting needs have decreased, allowing them to fill in their holes with existing performers. But there are always some hard-to-fill spots. So go to the audition, but don't be disappointed if you don't get cast, as they're probably looking for people to fill a few specific spots. Keep trying at other auditions, as then they may be looking for a role that you can better fill.

    Although the website says the audition is for both Block Party and Parade of Dreams, it will actually be for Block Party only. The fliers that have been posted show it as Block Party only. Apparently Parade of Dreams doesn't have any spots to fill (although the Princes are a different matter)
