Odds are if you have ever been to a dance audition before, you have been asked to freestyle. If you have not come across this experience yet, then you probably will soon. It is very common to be taught a few counts of 8 for an audition and then to freestyle at the end by the choreographer. Or maybe you have made the first cut and now the choreographer wants to see more.

What is a choreographer looking for during your freestyle?

Your energy, your musicality or there might be something else specific that the choreographer is particularly looking for.

How do I freestyle?

You are a unique dancer, you have your own style and flair. This is where you would show the choreographer the best of your best. Do you know some acro tricks? Can you do any impressive jumps or can you turn like no one else?~ Now is the time do these moves and show your personality. If you have been asked to freestyle don’t panic, take some deep breaths before starting the combination, find the timing of the music and dance your heart out.

If you are worried and have never had to freestyle before, it is always a good idea to practice at home or in the studio when you have some time. Just turn on some music and dance!  The more you practice on your own, the less intimidating it will be do you in an audition setting when you could have the chance at your dream job.

Remember to have fun with it!
