Re: Is performing/dance experience necessary for parade auditions?
Many years ago my daughter (who was working at Disneyland at the time) and her friend auditioned for characters (fuzzies). Even auditioning for that, they had to dance (since some of the characters do dance in the parade)
So, part of the audition was dancing. If you haven't had any experience with dance or choreography to start with, it would be really hard to even make it past the first part of the audition. They have people audition that have semi professional experience, with modeling experience, head shot books and previous experience in dance/theatre. Unless you're really talented, its hard to compete with that kind of experience.
