Yesterday, I attended the audition that I made mention of in the entry prior to this one. Simply stated, I had a blast. I found myself enjoying the process of it, and I really felt full of an energy that seemed to say, "You're definitely making the correct decision for yourself." Let me be clear, I was definitely nervous, but even in the more challenging section of the audition for me, I was able to keep my head on straight, stay focused, and enjoy myself. I made it through both of the cuts and was one of five who was asked to sing out of around twenty or thirty-something male dancers who auditioned.
This was just one of many auditions that I will attend. Whether or not I book the gig at this point isn't what matters the most to me. The small success of loving what I was doing was huge for my confidence level. I can't wait until I am able to say, "I love auditioning!" That is the goal I have decided to set for myself.
I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. I had two performances after I had the audition, so I'm practically delirious as I write this! In the evening show I danced Trepak once again, and I'm happy to report that I didn't fall this time. I was a bit less comfortable with it than usual, but my confidence will return, and I'll enjoy it once again! In the meantime, I'm getting some rest.
