When you’re an aspiring artist, you spend a lot of time trying to get yourself in front of the right people: coaches, instructors, teachers, you name it. Getting the best guidance and training for your talent is a huge part of starting your career as a performing or visual artist. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to impress colleges, casting agents, directors, or potential employers, you definitely want to make a great first impression. And that might be easier than you think.
For young performing artists pursuing theatre or musical theatre, life can seem like series of auditions: college auditions, show auditions, live auditions, digital auditions, it doesn’t matter. You know that you have one chance to really blow your judges away. One of the worst things you can do in an audition is to be unmemorable. You need to make sure your performance can stand out in a crowd, and that takes a combination of confidence, talent, and solid preparation.
