Well they are bring her out to train her in the role and then once she is traind she does Fant.. its the only reason they train Megs anymore as they don't bring any of the others out from that movie ever and I'm pretty sure don't even train Herk anymore, if so there is like one person who can do him. But there are a few mags and they still train her because she is in Fant

Dancer Auditions

I see Disney is having dancer auditions on March 19th. Does anyone know what goes on during this audition and how long it may last? Thanks in advance for any info.

Dancer auditions are for equity.

They will teach everyone a quick and technical ballet routine, then make cuts. I would say that out of 100+ girls they kept about 12. I was there for maybe an hour, it was very quick, and was cut after the first round.

Wow....Brutal huh? Equity?, does that mean you have to be a member of some sort of union/guild to audition?
Thanks!

No, but it gets you chance to be in the union.

equity does more shows/singing/dance stuff... they don't ever do meet and greets. So it's way more competive to get into.

Aladdin is another wigged male, and Peter Pan, Christopher Robin, Jack Sparrow.

Usually any one over 6' is looked for during auditions for star wars weekend (assuming the march auditions), Darth Vadar, storm stroopers, and other characters are all over 6' tall. But most the time, 6' is as tall as they go for the regular characters - Goofy, Baloo, Captian Hook, Beast...
And from what I learned, even if you can fit Baloo or Beast or some other larger character, you have to be able to fit one of the main characters like Goofy. I knew some one that got rejected because he didn't look right in goofy.

That's what I've heard. I know that she doesn't come out much at all. This may sound off topic but i swear it's not lol- but i dressed as Meg at the last MNSSHP. All I kept hearing from CM's and Character Handlers was "Well it's nice to finally see you out and about again, Meg." lol it was fun

snow queen, Meg and Lady T are in your height range, you don't have the face for Lady T her face is long and narrow. So Mayve the other 2 but I really don't know what they look at for the 2 I just know they are in your height range and they have rounder faces (also neither looks truly old, Meg def doesn't and Snow Queen doens't either, she is the second fairest of them all as the story goes)

Other then that it just depends on the people that are doing the casting.

Okay kind of random but... how many face characters can a single entertainment cast member be friends with? Is there a limit? I was looking at some pics of face characters awhile ago, and I swear I saw one girl being friends with four different princesses.

It's very possible to have a few friends as face. I know some one that went from Belle to a fairy.

yea for a time many of them could do at least 2 but right now that might be a little less common as they just kind of went threw and re looked at them all and movied people around and such. Its a problem sometimes cuz like My friend did Snow and one of the step sisters and guest aren't stupid and would say "hey you where an ungly step sister yesterday and dinner" and she woul dhave to say "oh no why would I want to be an ulgy step sister" or something like that.

but I'm not sure there is a limit if they think you fit.

Are you auditioning for CP or FT? As a CP, the only one in your range in Tremaine. As for FT, you've got Queen, Maleficent and possibly Cruella (depending on how you're measured). Meg cuts off at 5'8. The reason there is a difference is because those other characters are only in shows/parades and not many CPs are approved in a character just for a show/parade.

As mentioned, no limit. The most I know of is 6 for one person, I know quite a few with 4, 2 is really common.

I have a friend that is 5'9 Disney height and is Meg but maybe they just thought she really really looked like her idk..

Also I think it kind of depends on what they need at the time I know a Maleficent who started doing her when she was a CP. So I don't think its set in stone that CPs wont do them maybe just not as common.

I wish I were at WDW!
I'm good at the graceful stuff
Why would you put Ivy in the title if it's never going to come up again?

Thank you to all above, but particularly this response. Very clear. I was hoping to audition for the fall, but because my teacher wanted me to push back my recital, the audition dates are all at a really bad time for me. I'll just have to do it for the Spring...I would then audition on the specified Orlando date for the Spring 2010 CP? Thanks so much guys, makes me feel more prepared for tomorrow!
