Anyone can audition... but there are auditions specifically for CPs, so you should not attend one of those. But may attend any of the others. Yes, any dance experience is a bonus. The first round is 16 counts, repeated across the floor. From there you may be sent to the standard audition (about 6-8 8 counts) or the advance audition which is more technical. YES!! Go to the Thursday afternoons, you will be considered for both. At your height, I do not recommend a face only. The calendar only goes out so far, there will be more dates posted as it gets closer. Since you are not doing the CP, you are on your own regarding housing and finding a roommate. There are people who post roommate requests here on the DIS, so this is a good place to keep checking. Sounds like you watched the YouTube video of the girl who went to the face audition, sadly, a lot of her information is incorrect. The first round is based on 2 things; height and movement ability. Then people get split based on their skill; some will get fit for face, some will go to animation, and some will go to advance dance. There is also a puppeteer audition that select individuals may participate in as well. You will find out at the end of the audition if you have been selected for the pool. If there are immediate openings, you may be offered something on the spot, but that is very very rare.
