This is my pre-audition playlist I made when I was doing company auditions. It starts out with upbeat, powerful songs to get your energy and confidence up. Then, it transitions to a few chill songs to calm those pre-performance jitters. All have uplifting messages or vibes to remind you that you got this, and you will do FANTASTIC out there!
To get you pumped up:
Dose - Ciara
Bring Me To Life - Evanescence. Cue the epic training montage!
Fight Song - Rachel Platten
Domino - Jessie J. Upbeat and energetic.
Don't Let This Feeling Fade - Lindsey Stirling
Me Too - Meghan Trainor. A "shameless brag" song to remind you you're really cool.
We Are Giants - Lindsey Stirling
Monody - TheFatRat. A fun, happy song that'll make you want to get up and do a silly dance, which I highly encourage. Relax, have fun!
Arise - Flyleaf. Currently my favorite song because of the last line: "Arise, and be all that you dreamed." Super inspirational,
Face My Fears - Utada Hikaru. About facing fears, obviously--absolutely applicable for auditions and shows. Also, it's from Kingdom Hearts III, so it's got some geek value.
Confident - Demi Lovato. One last song to pump you up. You got this, rockstar!
Unbreakable - Fireflight
To calm the nerves:
Let it Be - Blackmill. Actually, if you're looking for some relaxing songs, I recommend pretty much anything by Blackmill. "Let it Be" is my favorite, though.
Lost Girls - Lindsey Stirling. Will make you feel like running carefree through the fields of a fantasy land.
breathin - Ariana Grande
Scars to Your Beautiful - Alessia Cara. This is the unofficial anthem of B+ Dance, BTW.
In My Arms - Plumb
Better When I'm Dancing - Megan Trainor. No matter what happens, at least you're doing your favorite thing in the world--dancing!
Break a leg out there!
