I have auditions for Ballet Arizona’s summer intensive (I’m fairly confident I can get into this one) and Houston Ballet’s summer intensive (this is my “long shot” audition this season) coming up in about a month. I feel mostly confident in my technique and performance however, my body type has always been a problem in auditions. I am not overweight, in fact my weight itself categorizes me as slightly underweight. However my legs are quite short in comparison to the rest of my body and I am only 5’2″. I fear that a higher end company like Houston Ballet will discredit me for my body and just would like to know some other people’s experiences auditioning with either of these companies.
