I was the 26th equity lady to get an audition card and they decided to take us in, in groups of 30, so I was in the first group to go. Hooray for no waiting! Well, can I just say that this may have been one of the worst auditions I have ever had! Simply put, the combination was very contemporary ballet and well after about a year of straight jazz and tap, you could say I was woefully unprepared.
Here's a video that gives an example of choreo, but its not the combo they used. Starts at 1:25 or so.
The combination instead of being taught in eights, was counted in fours, fives, and a seven. Add to that movement that just refused to feel comfortable in my body and you have a recipe for disaster. After just struggling to pick up the material, I finally got it at least well enough to not completely embarrass myself, but it was still terrible. I can't sit here and pretend it was anything else. However of our group of 30 they only kept 2 and I'm not even sure if they were asked to sing. So I'm no too upset. At least now I know what to expect and also if I'm serious about Wicked I should take my butt to some contemporary classes! So it wasn't a totally useless or demoralizing experience.
On to the next one!
