heya..

Im going to that audition too, and I am also trying to find out the same as you too.

Basically so Ive been told and read, that you have to wear comfortable clothing as will be required to take part in a movement/dance rutine...
Well, if this means for everyone or just dancers, performers ect...then I dont think people applying to be a normal character, have to dance!
Although I do think we will have do some character gestures and acting if you know what I mean..

But i have found this website..
http://corporate.disney.go.com/auditions/
Dont know if it will help you at all, it has me slightly but still doesnt really tell you what you will be doing which is really doing my head in because I have no clue at all what to expect...Im not the worlds greatest dancer, so I hope there is no dancing required lol unsure.gif

Let me know if it does help and if you find out anymore info about it.
Might see you there!!

hey guys thanks for the replies!!

Im hoping that they arent wanting really skinny people either lol because im not majorly skinny!!
But I think they give poeple a chane...it would be wrong if they wouldnt hire people who arent super skinny..

Yeah ive heard about the movement side but wasnt exactly sure what that ment..if that means just jumping about like a character or actual choreography...but the dances they do seem really easy, Im not so bad at dancing....i hope!! lol

Im just looking forward to it more than anything..even if i dont get through its going to be a great experience!!

Do you know anything about the height/weight restrictments though?? Im 5ft 2 and it eithe seems to be for really small poeple like 4ft 11 or really tall like 6ft 2!!

Heya, I'll be at the same audition, auditioning for a character look-alike role. Unfortunately I'm 5'6" which seems to be a dreadful height for girls applying to disney >< from what I've read they generally like shorter girls sad.gif

I've auditioned before and the dance routines are SO simple, i.e. step touch cheesy pose...nothing hard about it at all. And they welcome all heights and don't prefer it if you're short. It's meant to be a fun audition its not like you'll be auditioning for the Royal Ballet School so just turn up have fun and enjoy! All they look for is that you can light up a performance setting with your presence and not that you can do a tripple back flip or something!

Have fun
