Suzanne’s Pro Tip
In the dance and performing arts industries, your body is your business card! Make sure you are taking care of yourself both inside and out: In addition to a regimen of eating healthy, working out and taking dance / prep classes to stay in peak physical condition, don’t neglect your hair, makeup, tan and audition attire! Give yourself enough time prior to the week of auditions to find a “look” that works for you.
