-what did you audition for?
Washington School of Ballet, Vladimir Djouloukhadze was the auditioner

-what age group you attended (young middle or old if you dont want to be too specific)
14-22

-what was the easiest thing at the audition?
The pointe, I guess

-what was the hardest thing bout the audition?
He had an accent, so was hard to understand and it was crowded, so it took a while to pick up combinations. Other than that, it was just...hard. I guess the combinations were hard to remember. And it was a little bit difficult technique-wise...and I was intimidated because there were girls that were soooo much better than me.

-was it crowded?
60 people in a smallish/medium studio

-how much was en pointe?
I don't know, about 40 minutes?

-how many pirouettes were you expected to do?
doubles

-did you have to do fouettes?
He put one Italian fouette in the first center combination that we did, and it really threw me off guard, because then I expected to have to do more, but we didn't.

-did you have fun??? (I hope you did!)
Yeah, but it wasn't as fun as some auditions to which I've been.

Sorry, my SAB post (a few up) is too old to edit, and I forgot to say, she's a big fan of dancing with the music. She stopped us several times and reminded us to listen for the music and to count.
