What 2 Wear: Dance Agent Auditions

Agent audition

Get each look for UNDER $100!!

When prepping to attend a dance agent audition, the answer to “what do I wear?” is a daunting one.  You have to look polished and presentable, yet show your awesome personality at the same time.  Since first impressions are everything at a dance agent audition, it is important that you come across as a professional and marketable artist.  Also, since an agent makes commission from the jobs you book, they want to represent a client that has a variety of skill sets and looks.  Most importantly, this industry is 10% talent and 90% business.  Professionalism and a clean polished look will take you a long way as opposed to the over the top, lady gaga wannabes.

A few things to keep in mind:


  • K.I.S.S – Keep It Simple & Sexy
  • Show off your body and wear form fitting attire that accentuates your assets
  • Create a relatable character with your outfit.  How do you want them to see you?  Girl next door, sexy, sassy, sweet?
  • Bring every dance shoe you have ESPECIALLY heels!!
  • Bring at least 3 copies of your headshot and résumé stapled together with your name on both
  • Make sure everything is securely pinned.  You don’t want clothing, accessories, or hair flying off on the dance floor!
  • Bring a pen, safety pins, and a winning attitude!


  • Wear gaudy prints, graphics and over the top accessories
  • Wear any lip color other than a vibrant red or pink.  Blacks, magentas, blues and greens are best for the club.
  • Wrap anything around your waist or cover up with baggy jackets and clothes.  The agent wants to see your body!
  • Get caught unprepared!  Pack extra leggings, stockings, tops, shorts and skirts just in case you have to make a quick wardrobe change.
  • Have anyone else’s name on your photograph – i.e photographer’s watermark
