Audition Preparation

Mission: Prepare for Character Performer Auditions

The CP audition dates are coming up fast! The earliest date is March 22 in Madison, WI. I, personally, will be attending the Chicago audition on March 26. It actually works out perfectly because I will be on Spring Break during that time (meaning a 45 minute drive from home versus a 3 hour drive from uni).

But that's so soon! March 26 is exactly a month away. That gives me just 4 weeks to get [back] into dance shape. This means a lot of cardio, a lot of stretching, and a lot of turns, jumps, and leaps. The latter will be fun, but the first two... not so much.

I am lucky that I have the wonderful ARC gym that is less than a 5 minute walk from my dorm. I've been going there on almost daily basis since last semester, but it's definitely time to kick it into a higher gear.

I'll also be reading up on other audition experiences from other blogs and this info will really come in handy. Is anyone else auditioning as well? And how do you plan to prepare?

Oh hi!

Believe it or not (believe it I have proof lol), this is not my first Disney College Program blog post. Nope. But in light of recent news (!!!!) I decided to switch to blogger so I could follower my fellow CP-ers and CP hopefuls. Older blog posts can be read @ illini4princess.wordpress.

Just some quickie facts about yours truly...
+ I am a freshman college student currently attending the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (go Illini!)

+ My major is (or soon will be) English, Pre-law.
+ My favorite movie(s) are Sin City and any HP movie [the second favorite movie varies, Sin City is always a for sure]
+ My favorite Disney movie is Lion King, Pixar movie would be The Incredibles (seen it 18 times!)
+ As for everything else... coming soon! haha

And just because I haven't said... it's official that

*parties* *streamers* *dancing*
Yes, I've been accepted to the Disney College Program for Fall 2010. I've already posted a bit about my personal experience here but I'll probably go in-depth so someone somewhere can maybe be comforted by my experience.


...the journey does not end here. Like so many other hopefuls I will be auditioning for a Character Performer role in March. So I'll definitely be using the next couple weeks to prepare for this mentally and physically (hurrah). Lots of stuff to look forward to!

xoxo, illini
