Read important acting audition tips, audition tips for singers and audition tips for dancers that will help you land that acting job.

Whether you are an aspiring actor or an experienced one, certain acting tips will help advance your acting career. Often enough actors fail to get the acting role because they lack training and experience. There are many acting schools and classes that specialize in different entertainment fields such as commercial acting, improv acting, and voice training. Focus your study on what you are best suited for and most interested in.

Before heading out to those auditions, any actor should get all the advice they can get. Being as prepared as you can be will help any actor do their best at those acting auditions. You can also learn additional acting tips along the way by speaking to other, experienced actors as well. There are general tips for all auditions that every performer - actor, dancer, singer - should know.

We can't guarantee that you will ace your auditions, but following these general tips for all performers - actors, dancers, singers - will prepare you and help make your acting audition a success.

  1. Always know the part or role you are auditioning for.  Make sure you have the characteristics and talents required for the role.
  2. Arrive thirty minutes prior to the audition time; this will give you time to check-in, warm up, and check out your competition.
  3. Bring at least 2 photos and resumes.  Professional headshots and acting portfolios are a plus.  Photos should reflect your current physical likeness and should always be updated!
  4. DO NOT chew gum (all directors hate it).  It makes it harder to understand when you are speaking or role playing.
  5. When attending callbacks, always wear the same attire you wore at the first audition. Try to do everything as you did the first time because it worked!
  6. Be confident, smile, always have a positive attitude.
  7. Act excited about everything you are asked to do.


  1. Be prepared for improvisation.
  2. Different voice tones and accents are a plus.
  3. Prepare a dramatic and comedic monologue no more than two minutes in length.
  4. Please ask and note if the auditions are going to provide sides.


  1. Bring two selections of sheet music in legible condition; one up-tempo and one ballad.
  2. Be prepared to sing the best 16 bars.
  3. Know your vocal range.
  4. Your sheet music should have full musical notation in the key in which you will perform.
  5. Always dress appropriately, especially if the audition requires movement in a dance routine.

As dance movies, dance TV shows, and dance competitions are becoming more and more popular, the demand for dancers in the entertainment industry is at its highest. Before heading out to those dance auditions, dancers should get all the advice they can get. Being as prepared as you can be will help any dancer do their best at those dance auditions. Read more >
