an outline of acting & modeling auditions

If you want to be famous or a successful artist, there are many avenues for you. You can choose to go and be a stage actor in Broadway, be a member of a band, sing solo, perform, or just do a little bit of everything. However, you must always take note that one does not become a star overnight. It takes time, just like what happened to Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Bono, Charice, even the very popular Justin Bieber.

Enrolling yourself in dance, singing and acting workshop will help you improve yourself and your chances in getting your dream. Though it can be hard to find good teachers, there are many mentors out there who can really help you develop your talent. Unfortunately, there are also some of them that only plan to suck the money out of you. So what to do?

The best thing to do is to join dance, singing or acting workshops. It may not be easy as it sounds, because even in workshops, you still have to audition. But the key is in finding the right mentor who would teach you what you really need to learn. Unfortunately, there are many people out there who claim to be Star Mentors, but would only take your money for nothing.

It is always best to ask for references if you think your current teacher does not suit your taste. You can shop around and ask the people within your circle to give you some names. Because it is art, sometimes you need to get the right people to teach you stuff. Maybe they could teach you the basics but not the technical stuff. Of course, you also need to audition if you subscribe to any of the dancing, singing or acting workshop.

Auditioning is an important step to get the role you want. Charice auditioned for „Glee,“ Renee Zellwegger auditioned for her award-winning roles. Auditions are the best platforms for you to showcase what you got, and to show your skills and talents to the people who need you. It is a form of self-advertisement, however, almost always, you get only one chance to show your stuff. So being well-prepared is very important.

If you plan to dance on your audition, you have to decide on the type of dance that you would be very comfortable with. Knowing the song by heart is vital, so that you can dance to the beat and really feel the rhythm. For singing, you need two music pieces; one slow and another with a faster tempo. If you are going to act your way to stardom, you’ll need a monologue for the auditions. Make sure that you memorized everything so that you do not get lost in the middle of the auditions.

One of the aspects that directors and judges look for in an aspiring star is general attitude. Your attitude and conduct during the entire audition process will showcase your personality positively. Nobody wants an egotistical and arrogant artist. It is important that you show courteousness even when handing your resume during the auditions. Confidence is also a big plus in auditions. When you walk to the middle of the stage, walk with positivity, knowing that you have the skills and you will make it. Stand straight and smile to the judges, greet them sincerely and look them in the eye. Even when handing a music piece to the instrumentalists, or to the technicians, always remember to be polite.

Although it seems like an obscure part of the audition, your resume holds a big part in landing your dream role. It is like your advertisement in writing, wherein you write about your skills, goals, background and experiences. Like being on stage, you should positively showcase yourself in your resume. Choose what makes you stand out, your edge over the other candidates. Your photos in the resume should also be professionally done, to show your most attractive profile.
