Smile, be yourself, be confident but not arrogant, do your best!.!.!.!.!.!.and just dance your heart out and your butt off!!! Think about your trouble spots (for me I always have to watch out for my bent knees and point my toes extra hard)!. Get a good night's rest and do everything cleanly otherwise she won't be impressed!. If you get your leg all the way to your head but your hips are out of alignment she won't be impressed at all!. So do your cleanest!. Be on time, be dressed properly (I suggest clean black leotard and pink tights) with hair neatly in a bun!. Most of all, good luck and just let your dancing shine - be a happy dancer and never give up on your dreams!Www@QuestionHome@Com

with my pointes i would always get big painful blisters, get some methylated spirits and put it on it, it soaks it up into a callus!. it works-trust me!.

as for your routine, vary it up a little, swap between fast and slow, strong and graceful!. confidence is always the key, believe in yourself and smile all the way, but when you get to graceful, change your facial expression, as if you're moving through the music!.

in exams/auditions when im trying to pick up choreography, i talk to myself inside my head, and repeat what they say (in my head) and my feet vaguely move as the examiner is telling me!. then, after she explains it, I do it like i would when i'm actually reciting it!.

tonight, have a gooood sleep, watch a dancing movie to get you psyched, and just stretch, but tonight is not the night to be pushing yourself!. good luck, you'll be great!. : )Www@QuestionHome@Com

It will be the same as any oher audition!. a lot of witing around!., but one word
SMILE------if you smile they will notice you, and always put all your energy into everything!!
Healing--have a hot bath, then dry your feet off, pop the blister, and don't put anything on top, let it dry out!.
good luckWww@QuestionHome@Com
