I know there is another thread, but since it was more of an anouncement, I just wanted to give you guys what it was like going through the process. First of all I'm a theatre person, and I've auditioned for every high school play thus far, but nothing could compare to the experience of the audition at Disney.
First I got there around 8:00 am and we all got measured, our photo taken, and our audition number. From there we went to a rehersal hall where we learned I believe it was 4 counts of 8 of a dance. I've been working on my dancing through the years, but I'm nowhere near a dancer, and it was very hard for me to learn the dance. Once we learned the dance for about 10 minutes they made us do it in paris of three. They didn't give you much time, so I just smiled and had energy cause I knew I didn't know the routine very well.
After doing the routine in groups of three, we were placed in two groups, one moved on to do more dancing and the rest of us waited to either contiune or be but. Luckily I was not cut and they let us have lunch, and come back around 3:00. So came back and did the routine over again, and I still messed it up, but I still had lots of smiles and energy. From there it was the final cut. They put us in two sections where we could not be seen. To my surprise they offered us all in the room a position. So we all went back to the rehersal hall. Although it was the Electrical Light Parade auditions, they were still casting for the other parades. I got the Rhino in Parade of Dreams, although I won't be seen, I was estatic because its a way to get into the parade, I will have to go through a new experience and meet new people. So I then left around 5:30.
It was a long day, but the auditons to me were the hardest I've ever endured. It was a wonderful experience, and I give kudos to anyone who just gets up there and trys there best. I felt very little at first cause everyone looked like they knew what they were doing, but I just decided to give it my all and try my very best, and it payed off.
So look for the Rhino starting June 15th!
