BalletScout's Inaugural Audition Success Seminar. A Resounding Success!

Robert Fulton - July 4, 2023, 5:58 p.m.

As the curtains close on our inaugural Audition Success Seminar, the BalletScout team has been met with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment and gratitude. This past week, we held our first ever seminar at the Nevada Ballet Theatre (NBT), and the experience was nothing short of enlightening and enriching.


Audition season is a period that can bring stress and uncertainty to many dancers and their families. From curating the perfect audition photos and assembling compelling videos to identifying suitable programs and standing out amidst fierce competition, the process can seem daunting. With these challenges in mind, we noticed a persistent demand for clear, concise, and impactful guidance.  


Our seminar was designed to provide students (and their parents) with an understanding of the contemporary standards for audition materials and valuable tips for creating impactful applications. We also highlighted potential pathways to becoming a professional and more. It was exciting to see the intrigue and engagement during our interactive game at the start of the seminar - complete with prizes! Despite the participants' wealth of experience, the game revealed that there was still so much to learn.


The response we received from both students and teachers at NBT was heartening. They found the seminar not just informative but also entertaining - a testament to the effectiveness of combining learning with fun.  


The content of the seminar was drawn from an amalgamation of sources - our personal experiences as professional dancers, four years of industry experience with BalletScout, and extensive research. We believe in delivering accurate, up-to-date, and valuable information to our audience.


During the seminar, we delved into a variety of topics, including:

The resounding success of our initial seminar at NBT has spurred us on with renewed enthusiasm. We're excited to continue our tour, sharing insights and strategies with dancers across the country. The journey has only just begun, and we can't wait to see where it takes us.


Here's to demystifying the audition process, one seminar at a time!
