Audition Tips: Things we are looking for in performers:
Performance ability. Are you smiling, are you excited to be part of this production? Are you performing like you would be comfortable interacting with the audience?
Technical ability. Fiesta Noche del Rio incorporates several different styles of dancing, including Folklorico, Flamenco, Latin Ballroom, Jazz/ Hip-hop and Country Western. You don’t have to be perfect in any discipline, but you must be willing to learn. Fiesta Noche del Rio also incorporates both English and Spanish songs. You do not need to be fluent in either language to be one of our singers but you must be willing to learn.
Physical Stamina. Fiesta Noche del Rio is a high energy, hour and thirty-minute production. It takes place outdoors, at night, in the middle of a Texas summer. You don’t have to be in the best shape of your life at auditions but show us you can handle the 1 hour and 30-minute audition.
Professionalism. As a cast member, you are expected to be at every performance and rehearsal. Your availability to attend rehearsals and performances will affect your casting. We are also looking for performers who can receive and apply feedback.
