Thanks
Thanks!
I wore dance clothes - tan tights, a black leotard, black shorts, and a red top. No photo/resume was needed- they took their own photo. We first did a short, simple dance routine across the floor. After that they made some cuts. Then we learned what animation exercise we would do and learned a longer, more difficult routine. We went in and did these in groups of 6. After that we waited until one of the casting people told us how we did. It was the most relaxed and fun auditions I have ever been to- I had so much fun with it.

I was measured 5' 5 1/2". I'm usually measured at 5'7" so I was amazed.
But when I went in with the other people that passed, the casting member said that they didn't have positions that matched our heights and our audition results (or something to that effect). I think height was the main reason, but don't quote me on that. lol

They had a cut, there at the audition?? That is really weird. I have never heard of there being a cut at a CP audition. Everyone had always stayed for both dance and animation.

I wish I understood why people were measured at different heights - I was measured at 5'7 and a quarter (my real height). I wish someone had some insight on why they go down in inches for some but not others - how do they make that decision?

You are one of the only people I know of (off the top of my head) that was measured at your real height. I don't know the exact reasons why, but from what I have heard, part of it may be due to a need for characters of a certain height range. Disney measured me almost an inch shorter than my true height.

Do they ever measure people taller? I talked with the casting director afterwards, and she mentioned that my strength is my movement and I saw on-line that most dancers have to be 5'7 or taller. I'm not really interested in being a dancer (especially because the advance dance was very very technical), but I would be interested in villains - who are usually pretty tall.

I didn't hear of anyone getting measured taller. My friend who was at the audition with me said he "thought taller" but he ended up at his same height, if not shorter.

someone at the Rochester audition was measured at 5', when she's actually 4'10 or so.

Lucky! I would give anything to be measured that much shorter.

I'm 6'1, but usually get measured at 6'0 for Disney height. Hoping they will have something open in my height range when I audition.
