Tips for Entry

Begin your training in dance as early as possible, usually in elementary school, and apply to attend summer programs at dance companies in your area.

Prepare to commit yourself to dance if you expect to become highly proficient.  This means that dance must take priority over other after-school activities.

Persistence and hard work are essential to become a good dancer.  Be prepared to enter auditions as often as you can and to accept failure far more often than you will achieve success. Professional dancers grow accustomed to being turned down and losing parts far more often than they win them.
