Auditioning. For working dancers, it’s both nerve-wracking and unavoidable. It can be demoralizing to think that two or three out of a packed “cattle call” audition room may be cast or hired -- and that you might not be one of those two or three, even if you give it your all and do great. Some things directors are looking for are within your control, and those are skills that you can work at and take responsibility for. Some of those things (such as typecasting) aren’t. At the same time, are there still gifts to be gained from these experiences, even if you don’t “get the job”? Can you hone your skills for future editions, make fruitful contacts and friends, and even simply have a stellar time dancing?
