Do Dancers Ever Really Get Rejected At Auditions?

Aug 26, 2008
Dancers don't get every single job that they want to. There can be a number of reasons for this from their dancing not being up to scratch to having the wrong image or personality. But are they really being rejected?

Of course not and seeing it that way can ruin your prospects of a successful career! A successful dancer knows that sometimes they are just not right for the part and they decided to go for someone else. Many times it won't even be about dancing skill.

An intelligent dancer knows that while one person wouldn't pick them for that job, another person may well have seen them as perfect for that job and it is all in a matter of opinion. They know that they will succeed many times if they continue to dance well.

Treating unsuccessful auditions as rejections can destroy a dancer's soul and damage their self-worth. Dance is a competitive industry by nature and dancers will be unsuccessful some of the time. You can be the best dancer in the room and still not get picked.

If anything an unsuccessful audition can be seen as a stepping stone. Every time you don't get the part, you're one step closer to the part that is yours.

It is also a good idea to try and be wise about why the audition was not successful. Consider why other people were picked over you but don't see those who were successful as the enemy. Try and gauge what the judges were looking for at this particular audition and learn from it.

Think of auditions as you would food. As much as you like a certain food you probably would not choose to eat the same dinner every single day even if it was your favourite food. Even if a dancer is their favourite in the room, sometimes they'll have to stop themselves from selecting a dancer for the job because they do not meet the brief.

Try and relate to the position of the person who picks the dancers. Don't be like other dancers who may have an inner anger at them. Let it go, be understanding - it's not easy to be hated. Especially since many of them are not your typical TV talent show 'mean judge.'

Respect the job they do - you may well be called to audition for them again in the future. Many a time a dancer hasn't been right for a part, but a producer or choreographer has remembered them for another role that they would be perfect for.

Continue your adventures in the dance world and have fun because dancing is a fun job, and auditions are part of that job.
