Auditions: Before you leave home…

Stand still for a moment, shut your eyes. Imagine a string pulling from the crown of your head to the sky. Go up onto your toes. Now lower yourself back slowly until you really make contact with the ground (don’t lock your knees). But still feel the string taking you upwards.

Rub your hands together until they are warm. Place your hand over your upper chest and let it soften. Rub your hands together, place them over your belly. Take in the warmth and breathe into your hands. Rub your hands together. Place one hand on your belly and the other at the small of your back. Take in the strength from the warmth of your hands.

Open your eyes. ‘See’ yourself (with your back to you) standing in front of you in a ‘magic circle’. See yourself at your best, most confident. See yourself as you want to be. As your successful, confident self!

Take a big step and stand ‘into’ yourself. Look around. You are unique. You can do anything. You are strong. You are brave.

Go out the door…
