Audition Tips From Simma Wear

Simma Wear has some good audition tips for the aspiring professional dancer.

My Top 5 Mental Tips For Defeating Nerves: 

1. Don’t say “Me Too” when your friend says she’s nervous. It may sound small, but you’re already putting yourself in a position to be defeated. You can still be humble and relatable without making small talk with the “I’m nervous” while waiting. Your mind set is everything, so don’t give into your environment.

2. Think of your audition as you’ve already made it. You’re already on the team, and it’s just a 2 min performance where your front and center. Think of it has it’s your time to shine and perform, not as it’s your time to make a team or be judged. Stop thinking of your audition as an audition! 

3. Distract yourself from emotions right before you audition. We all get lost in emotion, “What if I’m not pretty enough? I don’t remember the last step! Oh no I’m next to a returner!” Our thoughts can throw us into a panic. One of my favorite techniques is just to look around the room and state facts in your head. “There’s the Floor” “The wall is blue.” “There’s four chairs.” “The mirror is clean.” Of course, don’t make it seem like you’re going crazy, but slowly looking around the room and stating facts has a way of calming the mind and distracting you from the nerves.

4. Forget about trying to be perfect. Make your audition less about you and more about your audience. The more you focus on connecting with your audience than remembering every move, your nerves will continuously go away through your audition, especially if you see they’re enjoying it. I try to capture judges within the first 2 8 counts. That way if I don’t remember the ending of the routine, they won’t even care as I captured them with performance within the first couple of seconds. Once you build that connection on day 1, it’s easier to get through a week long audition knowing you already have them even more on your side!

5. Remind yourself how prepared you are! Well are you prepared? If you’re not, of course your going to feel nervous but if you’ve been putting in work, continuously remind yourself that your body will go into muscle memory when it comes to style and body positions.  Trust your body to do it’s job!

Tip: Calibrate Your Monitor in Windows For Best Color Representation

I bought a new ultra book laptop and I was reminded that for the best color representation, you should calibrate your monitor. While perusing some of the websites that I frequent commonly, I noticed that the colors were a bit off…too yellowish green. Windows has a nice tool to calibrate your display and the following video shows you how to do so.

As for Mac users, I am at a loss as I am strictly a Windows guy. I suppose you’ll have to use google to figure out how to calibrate your Mac.

So, if you want to optimize your viewing enjoyment of this site and others, by all means calibrate your monitor!

Rochester Knightingales Dance Team Auditions on Saturday, Oct. 7

Rochester Knightingales dance team will hold auditions for the 2017-18 season on Saturday, Oct. 7 at Harro East Gym (400 Andrews St.). Candidates will have the opportunity to try out for one of the hottest dance teams in the National Lacrosse League from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Harro East aerobics room.

The Knightingales are dedicated women who are physically fit, talented in dance/cheer or promotional modeling who are able to present themselves in a professional manner. Because the Knightingales are influential role models to the youth in our communities, the team selects women who are committed to leading a healthy, productive lifestyle. In addition to performing at Knighthawks’ home games, the team supports community projects throughout the Greater Rochester area.

When attending auditions, please bring a professional resume, including related experience, a recent photo (photo will not be returned), and a valid license or passport. There is also a $20 non-refundable cash-only fee. Each dancer must follow the dress code provided by the Rochester Knightingales. Audition attire includes a sports bra or tank top, form-fitted shorts, nude tights or yoga pants/leggings, and sneakers or dance shoes.

This year’s team will be under the direction of Emilie Schneider and Brenna Spencer. Emilie grew up in the town of Greece, where she first began taking dance classes. She is one of the veterans of the Knightingales as she enters her 13th season with the squad.

Brenna first began cheerleading and Irish dancing as a child and continued to study dance throughout high school and college. The Webster native was a member of the Nazareth dance team and the choreographer for the dance club. She began dancing professionally at age 18 and has been dancing and assisting with game-day direction for professional sports teams in Rochester, including the Raiders, Razorsharks, Lancers and Knighthawks.

The directors are looking to fill a variety of positions and are seeking women with personality and a willingness to learn. Knightingales participate in greetings, sales, team appearances, promotions, distributing giveaways, on-field performances, and in-stand dances.
