Top Tips for a great audition!

Be Prepared 

Preparation is the key. Choose your material in advance and practice! Do not leave your selection to the last minute. Read all the requirements carefully to make sure you do not miss anything.

Pack Everything The Night Before

Pack your bag the night before! Make sure you have all your music, scripts and dance attire to change into as well as water and snacks to keep you going.

Think Of What You Want To Ask In Advance 

What questions do you have? If you get through to the interview round what do you want to ask? Often we leave an interview wishing we had asked more! What are the important things that we need to know about you and what you want to achieve? The more you tell us, the more we can assist.

Be Confident, But Leave Your Ego At The Door. 

 Our ethos is based on supporting each other and encouraging success within our school through mutual respect and understanding. Everyone at Stageworx is on their own journey and no student is "better" than the next. We reward hard work and dedication and when you enter our building everyone is treated the same, regardless of background.
