Company audition - Issues

🔥😠🔥


ADA Mock Audition - Solution
✨😇✨

Most dancers get cut in the first round and don’t get to engage in the entire audition process

No cuts, all dancers will be able to participate in the final round (Interview with directors)
No feedback provided, dancers have no way to know what to improve

Dancers receive practical feedback and detailed evaluation of their performance


Not enough opportunities 
to participate in auditions and 
gain experience 
(Too far, too expensive)


Anyone can participate anytime through the online system 


Audition tours can be costly…. 

This is an actual travel itinerary of a dancer’s audition tour in Europe. The dancer had to travel to 12 cities in one month, spending not only precious time, but also a huge budget on transportation, accommodations, and food. The frequent travels made it difficult to stay in top condition for auditions.   

* KR dancers' average budget for one-month long audition tours: 3800 Euro ~ 5300 Euro

Is there a more cost-effective and time-saving method to gain audition experience?

YES!

Dancers will be able to audition in tip-top condition without worrying about travel plans!


Also, those who are new to company auditions can gain some experience and be prepared for the real thing!
