How to audition
Follow the link below to register your interest in auditioning. Auditions will usually have 2 parts, a performance and an informal interview. The performance is so we can see your stage presence and technical skills. The informal interview is a short chat to get a taste of who you are and to see if you fit with the Taste of Cairo ethos.
There are a couple of ways to audition:
1. Submit a video performance
This should be no longer than 4 minutes, followed by a short and informal interview with a small panel. Informal interviews will take place online at a time to suit the dancer and panel. Videos can be pre-recorded or performed during the informal interview.
2. Prepare a dance to perform in-person and attend a workshop or class taught by Eleanor Gaywood
Alongside Taste of Cairo, Eleanor is also director of Shimmy School, a belly dance school in South Yorkshire. She holds weekly classes in Sheffield. Prepared dances should be no more than 4 minutes long. You will be given a date/time to perform for a panel, followed by a short informal interview. The interview may take place on a different date if required. Contact Eleanor at Hello@tasteofcairo.com or DM @ShimmySchool on social media for more information about classes or upcoming workshops or to request an in-person audition in Sheffield.
