Today we started our Next Step program with 15 incredibly talented teens. The day started with an orientation, and then a warm up. From there, the young performers learned some music and participated in auditions for the creative team. The auditions help the team decide group placement, solos, and features.
After the auditions, they learned the music for entire opening number - "One" from A Chorus Line. Then the moved to the stage to begin learning the choreography for that number using the props they will perform with.
The day ended with the creative team talking to the campers about the industry, auditions, and working in the field. They offered tips and advice to the young performers about how to choose a college program, how to improve your odds of being seen in an audition, and how to manage your social and online presence.
