Post Should I be concerned?
Well, my aformentioned TK&I audition will be in late June and I am very excited. Adding to that excitement is that it will be choreographed by the same woman who choreographed me when I did OUAM. As I may have mentioned, I am not a very strong dancer, so the fact that I'm auditioning for a choreographer that knows my limitations but used me in a show anyway is very settling. However, there is some potentially troubling news. She's a good choreographer, but she's also very unconventional. Meaning sometimes she makes inappropriate choices (ie. making Normandy a disco number). So, based on that, I'm a little concerned that she might harm the integrity of King & I.

Just wanted to vent my concerns a little bit; any advice for other ways to think of this?

Did you work hard at the dance moves during OUAM?

They were a tad challenging at first, but with some time and practice I was able to nail them. Why?

If I was a choreographer, if I saw that the person was working hard and got them, that would mean more value to me than if I saw them at an audition and immediately had a blank slate on their dance experience...although I know it's not like that in the real world.
