Devon’s Pro Tip
When it’s audition time, it’s time to bring it! One of the most important keys to success is making sure you have “the look.” Being a great dancer is a plus, but being a sound dancer that looks like a professional cheerleader will get you that much further. You have to look the part to get the part.
