If you’re considering auditioning for a full time course GO FOR IT, and GO HARD! If you would also love to GO SUCCESSFULLY , then read on my friends, because talent is only part of what you need.
Audition for as many courses as your schedule and budget will permit. Increase your chances and your options, and make your decisions after the offers are in.
Appreciate your chinks. Perfection is not a deal breaking criterion. Directors of full time courses thrive on the discovery of raw talent that they can polish into exquisitely cut gems. Savour your rawness. It won’t last forever.
Be Openistic. Ok, I made that word up… but open your mind to what it could mean. Start noticing now how and where your unconscious dance habits show up, from face to feet. Loosen the grip on your current knowledge, because it is about to be challenged. Be flexible…not just in the legs. Be willing to try THEIR way of thinking and doing.
Shine Your Light. Confidently radiating your charisma can lead to massive success. If however you’re someone who is more comfortable cheering on others, and who helps illuminate them by dimming your own light, go ahead and congratulate yourself anyway, for being so sweet. You’ve managed to avoid casting shadows on your friends. Woo hoo! Now smack your wrist for limiting them. Some peeps need a blazed path to follow so they’ll know how to reach a new level of radiant success. Give yourself an access all areas pass to incandescence now… I mean with whatever you do… Even a visit to the post office could be a spectacular experience! Believe me there is enough luminosity to ignite all your dreams and experiences, AND your friends’ dreams!
Be Fun. Some folks unintentionally blank their personality in auditions because they are so focussed on getting things right. “Once I know they can do the job, I want to know if this person will be fun to work with for the next two years.” says Wicked Resident Director Kris Stewart. Be focussed on hard work and keep your sense of humour beautifully woven into the tapestry of your talent. TIA’S BONUS TIP: Dance It Forward. Your teacher has obviously done a mass of good endowing you with passion for your craft. Make time to go home to your founding dance teacher and teach for them. Help them promote their school, and help mentor their upcoming students. Consider volunteering somewhere occasionally to help share the joy of dance with your greater communities.

At 17 years old, I left my sleepy small town for the big city and a studio that held all my childhood dreams. Dance School! The previous September I had auditioned with my heart in my throat, wearing a cobalt blue unitard and waisted scarf (it was a different era back then!), and the world at my feet. Fortunately the panel also thought I could handle the world at my feet and I was accepted into full time dance. In another city. Away from my family life. Away from 17 years of upbringing, of shared rooms, sisters, the neighbourhood, my dance community, and Mum and Dad. It can be terrifying for both child and parent. So I thought I would write to all the Mum’s and Dad’s out there who are excited about the dreams of their treasured ones, and at the same time terrified because it’s the great unknown and suddenly ‘go live your dreams’ is no longer your favourite motivational phrase. Here is what I have learnt over time from my experiences and from the various phone calls I have received from concerned ‘first time parents of full timers’. • • •
It’s time......they are ready and you have to believe they have learnt all the right stuff from you to get by (i.e. how to make toast, load the washer, pay rent on time, handle defeat and get a good sleep) If your child is auditioning for multiple full time schools and is offered more than one, talk with your dancing child about what their priorities are. Is it musical theatre? Is it commercial dance? Is it contemporary? Is it to fulfill the dance dream and move on? (i.e. do they also harbour dreams of being a physio, lawyer....) Is it for the location? The school’s exposure? A friend is going? Most full time schools appear to have good websites with FAQs - and if you require more, call the school. Now, in my experience this point is one of the least explored. Pick up the phone and talk to the people who know the most. If you like the person you are talking to, it’s a good sign as you’ll be talking to that person a lot throughout the year.....you need a good relationship with them as they handle the metamorphoses of your child. And this one’s worth a shot: Ring the school your child is keen on and see if you can visit for a half day. This will give you the chance to see the facilities, meet the staff, see the students in action. Take note of the little things too, these end up being BIG things: Are the studio’s air conditioned? Are the sound systems too loud? (it’s never loud enough for us dancers, but the health of ears is far more important to us as professional dancers!) Are the faculty and admin staff approachable, interested and prepared to give you the time. (You are prepared to give them the money - a lot of it - so time is something they should be investing in you, minimum!) What are the eating facilities - in and around the studio? What are accommodation possibilities - does the studio help facilitate interstate students find flatmates from within the course? Once your dancing darling is into the course, be prepared for some hard yards. It will be all roses upon acceptance, then the first two weeks will be filled with great muscular pains and ego damage followed by a surge in enthusiasm is things get underway. Now the hard part. As the course progresses so do injuries. Please heed some well intentioned advice here - please ensure your child has the funds to seek treatment, has regular massages (once every 2-3 weeks if possible), understands the difference between a cold and the flu (one they can continue working through, one they should go straight to bed). And finally, as the course settles and your child looks around and understands where he/she is ranked in the class you will notice the determination either flourish or flounder. Finally - support and love no matter what. Offering solutions are less required in this hugely formative year. Dancers in training need to know if they are made of the right stuff to survive this industry past the first 16 months. If they struggle through dance school it may not be the best sign for their future. Offering a loving ear to listen to the drama’s but not enhance them is key.
I can’t tell you the number of times I got on the bus to head back up to the big city after a weekend at home, bawling because I missed my family so much. Then after the first day of the week was ticked off at dance school I was underway again. Hearing my mum’s voice on the phone was a special gift in any day. She believed I could dream up this reality and then see it through. If it were not for her continued love and support I would have chosen so very differently. I must remember to tell her that.

Over the years I have watched dancers who had been less talented than me have long and successful careers in the industry. It took me a long time to realise that their success was indicative of the fact that they believed in themselves enough to achieve their goals. They were prepared – mentally, emotionally and physically – to accept and endure whatever challenges were required of them in order to reach their desired outcome. They saw their objective and they went for it. Embrace dance. Allow yourself to experience the joy and liberation of dance, and at the same time be prepared for the challenges it will inevitably bring. There will be times when you will love dancing, and there will be times when you hate it. Both are indicators of your relationship with dance and with yourself. Learn from this relationship. Set goals that are challenging but realistic; remember that small successes spur you on to greater successes. Resist the urge to berate yourself; no-one responds as well to chastising as they do to encouragement. Believe in yourself, challenge yourself, expect the best you are capable of, cherish your abilities and your body, and acknowledge your achievements. You are choosing to train full time to better yourself as a performer. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do everything you can in order to attain the results you desire. You are in control of your own dance journey; it is up to you to make the transition from good to great. Yours in Dance Kate x

“Be Teddy!” the three year old girl demanded of her audience. She wanted everyone in the room – all members of her family – to be quiet like a teddy bear and watch her dance. She waited. She wouldn’t begin until she had everyone’s attention. Then she would stride, clap her hands, turn and wiggle her little body to the beat of the music. Finally, as she curtsied to their approving applause, she would watch her audience for feedback. I was this little girl and would often command my patient mum, dad, and siblings to watch me perform. Eventually, after much pleading on my part, my mum enrolled me into formal dance classes when I was four years old. That is how my journey into dance began. Like many of you, it was an early entry into the magical world of dance. By six years old I was performing solos in eisteddfods and participating in Royal Academy of Dance exams. By ten years old I had eight solo routines and felt like a star. By fifteen years old I made the big decision to train full time. Full time training was a huge and exciting transition, but one that took me completely by surprise. I really had no idea just how physically, emotionally and mentally challenging it would be. It was as fantastic an experience as it was demanding, and I discovered that as a dancer my biggest weakness was not my ability, but rather my mindset and the way I handled what I perceived as competitive environments. I trained full time for two years. I learned and grew and made the most of the opportunities that presented themselves (including performing with the Australian Ballet Company), but in the end my height became a very real concern. I was very tall for my age and medical procedures designed to predict my ultimate height only pointed to me getting taller. Essentially, my classical ballet options were limited. Not that my height ruled out dance altogether – far from it. But I was afraid of venturing onto a path that had not already been signposted for me for years. My training (my past, present and future) had been classical ballet, and I was afraid that after all of my years of training I would become what I feared most – a failure. I decided at that point that it would be easier to quit dance, rather than not be ‘good enough’. Dance for me, like many of you, was my first true love. It gave me pleasure and joy, as well as pain and heartache. I gave up on my dream of having a professional career as a classical ballerina, but my dance journey did not end there. My focus shifted from dance performance to dance teaching. I started my own dance school and tried my hardest to pass on the things I had learned to my students. I studied human psychology and behaviour as a way of better understanding myself and my dance, and I used the knowledge I gathered to inspire my teaching. I began to lecture on human behaviour and to write for Dance Life. And I had a family. Throughout it all, dance has remained central to my life; an anchor and an integral part of who I am. As for my fear of failure? It never went away. And you know what? After all these years and everything I have learned, I realise that I don’t want it to! Every time I push myself to reach a new objective I’m forced to face my fears – and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The only difference now is that I understand the mechanics and process of achievement. With the benefit of hindsight I realise that when I was a full time student I placed too much emphasis on the opinions of others. I relied on external validation, on compliments and rewards, to motivate me. And, as a result, I lost touch with my own deep inner source of inspiration and confidence.

Welcome to the most stimulating and challenging year (or two) of your life. You’re about to push your body’s limits both physically and mentally. By the end of your course you want to be technically and physically prepared, feeling confident that you have done everything you could to get you that amazing agent or performance of your dreams. Nutrition will play a vital role in the coming years. It can be the “make it or break it factor” that can see you shoot to stardom. As elite athletes we need to eat a little differently to the average person. •
• • •
Full time dancers need extra calories throughout the day, if you think about it you will be moving for most of the time burning more energy. Make sure that you “spend” those extra calories on foods that will help obtain your nutrients for the day like fruit, vegetables, dairy and wholegrains and avoid fast food, soft drinks and high sugar junk. Eat 5-6 small meals that contain some carbohydrates and protein at each snack or meal. This is very important as each nutrient works together to help with energy and muscle development. This means no leaving out carbohydrates – they are your primary energy food. Stay clear of “fad diets” and include a variety of each of the food groups in a balanced amount (boring I know, but true). Always include lots of fruit and vegetables into your day. This will ensure that you aren’t deficient in nutrients making it easier to fight the winter flu and work harder in each dance class. Make sure you include a small amount of good fats like nuts, avocado and oily fish like salmon to help lubricate your joints and give you a long career free from joint problems. Include some iron containing foods. Lean meat is the best source of iron so try consume at least two serves a week. Steer clear of high saturated fat foods like chips, chocolate, fried foods and most fast foods. If you remove them from you diet for long enough you won’t crave them anymore. Try consume low glycemic index (GI) foods like oats, wholegrains and legumes that will help prolong your energy and maintain your weight. Avoid high GI foods like potatoes, jasmine rice, watermelon and lollies. Don’t cut out any food groups –each plays an important role in our body proving us with different and important vitamins and minerals. Fatigue – less energy for classes Reduced immune function – missing classes Excess weight gain – may affect confidence Excess weight loss– may affect confidence Reduction in muscle mass - may affect strength Sluggish muscle development –hindering technique development Improve technique through healthy muscle growth Have lots of energy – to push your limits in every class Increase muscle mass or development – to help technique and males with lifts Maintain a lean physique – may help with confidence Fight the seasonal sniffles – to avoid missing classes
For a dancer maintaining their weight, aiming to improve their technique and push their bodyâ€™s limits a day could look like: (Based around a 60kg female) Breakfast: 45g of a low GI cereal with milk and a banana Morning Tea: 1 x apple and a handful of nuts Lunch: A chicken or tuna, salad sandwich and a yoghurt Afternoon tea: 4 x crackers with tuna and tomato Dinner: Â˝ cup of basmati rice, 100g of steak and half a plate FULL of seasonal steamed vegetables Supper: Yoghurt or a scoop of low fat ice cream (for those with a sweet tooth)
Remember as athletes you need to treat your body with great respect. It is your instrument and if it is running in peak condition your performance will improve. Fill it with great fuel, limit the junk and dance your heart out. Good luck!

It seems there are more and more fulltime courses around these days for or young dancers wanting to get that final year of intense training to prepare them for the world of the asking the question, ‘What is the right course entertainment industry. I hear a lot of dancers dan for me?’ you want An important part of making this decision is working out which part of the industry ind to head into. Do you want to be a commercial dancer? Do you want to be in a ballet/contemporary company? Or do you want to be in musical theatre? The next step is to look at the faculty that is teaching at the studios providing fulltime training. training. Most courses are some offer a selection of teachers that cover all realms of dance and performing. There T that are more focused on particular areas. Look at what is going to work for you and help you reach your full potential to get you to where you want to go! Some dancers aren’t sure what area they want to concentrate on at this stage, so picking a course that covers all bases is a good choice in this instance so you can be trained in all aspects and figure out your direction as you go. Some dancers dancers want to keep their options open and be versatile enough to work in more than one area, such as commercial work and musical theatre. So in this instance, picking a course that covers singing, acting and strong dance technique is essential! Being a dancer that still works professionally and also teaches at various fulltime courses, I see many dancers everyday that aren’t particularly focused on what it takes to get them to reach their full potential at the end of their fulltime year and in turn be ready to start auditioning and working the following year. Being present in class everyday and working to your full potential consistently IS A MUST. A year flies by so quickly and it’s it so important to take as much knowledge with th you from every class. There is no time to be lazy, absent or letting minor muscular aches get in the way of working hard! A dancer’s body will always be sore and tired, and fulltime training is a perfect way to adjust to this and learn how to work through it all. Another important thing to remember is to always present yourself in a tidy and well groomed fashion. Choreographers are always popping into studios for rehearsals for jobs, so always be ready and looking good! Remember your teachers are in some cases choreographers – i.e. YOUR FUTURE FUTURE EMPLOYERS! So always look employable and be on time and reliable! cho sing to eat, not being beneficial to I’m seeing too often, thee food that dancers are choosing helping their bodies work and look their best. Remember, YOUR BODY IS YOUR JOB and always looking ng your best and fittest is your responsibility in order to be employable. Eat responsibly to maintain good health and look the best you can! Remember to enjoy your year of fulltime training. It’s a wonderful opportunity for dancers’ dancers to train everyday under nder the supervision of some great teachers and choreographers and do what you love every day – DANCE!

WHAT TO L
K OUT FOR!
Full time study is an exciting thing to throw yourself into, you’re building the foundations for a career and gaining a greater understanding of the entertainment industry for starters. You will work hard (like you've never worked before) and make some fantastic friends along the way, it is important to grasp every opportunity and soak up as much knowledge from your teachers and learn, learn, learn as you go, every day be inspired and always develop your creativity to grow as a performer. When you walk away from a full time course it can be a bewildering thing, you never quite know where to start but you're fueled with bucket loads of enthusiasm and you're ready to take on the world in fighting fashion. Finding an agent is just one of the many tasks you will be faced with, it is never too soon to start your research and learn about the agents out there who may one day represent you. Study up and learn as much as you can - well before you arrange meetings. Having an idea of who these people are and whether they’re suited to your needs will help you to make an informed decision down the line rather than rushing to sign with the first person who shows an interest in you. If we start with the basics it’s important to be aware of the difference between agent and manager. An agent is defined as someone who negotiates fees and arranges auditions, typically you pay them no more than 10% for these basic services. A manager on the other hand expects higher rates of commission because they demonstrate services above and beyond that of an agent i.e. a more tailored and personal service with specific direction for your career. Due to the industry being quite small in Australia the role of agent and manager is usually a joint offering when you sign with a agency, check this out though. Your representation are the people you will work with most closely and ask advice of so don’t be shy in getting to know the services they offer. Here are just a few simple things for you to consider when finding an agency that fits with your needs: • Find out their strengths and weaknesses and look at their existing talent to see what work they do best and talk to as many people for personal references as possible. • Always ask plenty of questions if you’re unsure of anything, there are no stupid questions. • Look for someone who best suits your needs - if your focus is on musical theatre then don’t go to an acting agent. • If you become unhappy with your representation then let them know how you are feeling and try to resolve things, also remember there could be someone else out there who you works better with you so don’t be afraid to look around. • Always read the contract and question things you are unsure of – this may be important further down the road. • Recognise that your representation works for you and YOU are the talent, never be shy to let them know if you’re unhappy on a job or are considering a change in direction to hone your other performance skills, they are there to help you. The team you decide to sign with may be someone who represents you for a short time or for your entire career so be sure to find the person you feel comfortable communicating with and taking advice from. When you find supportive representation remember this is someone who will be putting you up for work that is better suited to your talents, someone to offer suggestions of audition material, suggestions of avenues you can explore that would better promote your work - basically a 'friend' who believes in you and will encourage your strengths and give honest criticism when you really need it. With the perfect combination of management and client you’ll have a winning team for sure!

– To succeed in life takes more than talent and dedication, more than opportunity or “luck”. People who make it to the top combine all this with the desire to mix with people they can learn from and be inspired by, and can connect them with other like-minded individuals. Remember the old saying “it’s not what you know, but who you know” – it’s not entirely true, but being in the right places and in the right circles creates opportunity. What you do with those opportunities is your decision. How can networking connect you to your future? Simple really …
Firstly, you have to be ready. • • •
Next, create a positive image so others can see who you are. • • •
Get to know the people you share your days with – and not just your peers. Look for ways to gain the attention and respect of others. Don’t take rejection personally. Be constructive in your criticism.
Following on, you need to actively market yourself. You don’t know who you are about to meet, or what opportunities may present themselves. • •
Always behave in a professional manner – your good name and reputation are everything. Always complete what you start. Regularly attend internal (your personal group) and external (exhibitions, shows etc) events.
Then, you need to build the trust of others you associate with – ie those you connect with. • • • •
Allocate some career planning time – find a quiet place where you can relax and evaluate where you want to go – visualise what, where, when, how – committing to paper as a diagram, words or story picture. Ensure your career forms part of your overall life plan. Complete a personal skills audit. Identify skill shortages that may prevent you from securing your goals. Create an action plan to attain those skills. Upgrade your audit regularly.
See your career as a personal investment, so make the commitment to spend an appropriate amount of time and effort working on it. Be seen, get known and move ahead.
Finally, truly successful people appreciate and celebrate the success of others. Giving creates receiving; teaching others what you know allows you to learn from them as well. • • •
Strive to be a committed sphere of influence. Develop a network of connectors. Celebrate success along the way.
Networking involves the art of building and sustaining mutually beneficial relationships. Build your reputation as a person worth being connected with and establish rapport with other like-minded people. You never know where this approach will take you, or to whom it may lead you. One thing is certain though. To do nothing is to achieve nothing. To look and listen with eyes and ears closed is to live in false hope. However, to take control and “put yourself out there” creates opportunity – that all you seek may be yours to have. So, why wait for the “big time” to come to you – your future starts now, and the sooner you take control of it, the better.

I loved Ecole so much for lots of reasons and mostly because of the wonderful memories it gave me. The teachers at Ecole gave me all the tools I needed and prepared me for a career in dance. They taught me about the importance of correct technique and also that ballet is an art and you need to be able to perform as an artist on stage and dance with your heart as well as your body. Miss Allyn and Mr Lethby thoroughly prepared me for all my RAD exams and also for the many eisteddfods I participated in. Ecole always felt like a second home to me, not only because of the lovely friends I made and the fun we had but also because the teachers were so caring and gave everyone the individual attention they needed. The support I received at Ecole was invaluable, I would not be a professional today without it!!!! “
