If Your Child Wants to Be On Disney Channel, What Should You Do?

Your Child Wants to Be On Disney Channel –

Having a child who wants to be on Disney Channel is not unusual — many children want to be on Disney Channel.  And the thought of your child being on Disney Channel is probably pleasurable to you. However, it is important to determine how serious your child really is about it.

Most children want to be on Disney Channel because of how much they enjoy the Disney television shows and movies. Many young children grow up with Disney being a big part of their lives. They may even feel like they know the characters on the shows personally. So of course they dream of being on Disney Channel and meeting the characters they know and love.

Other children enjoy the shows as well, but are also willing to do whatever it takes to actually be on Disney Channel.  These children love to act, sing, and dance and enjoy performing for other people. They are willing to work hard in order to achieve their dream — to be on Disney Channel.

Even though it may be quite fun, being on Disney Channel (or in any show, movie, or play) is also hard work!

It is not easy to get into most Disney Channel auditions — or auditions for any TV or film acting role, for that matter. For more information on how to get Disney Channel auditions, check out “How Do You Get Disney Acting Auditions (so You Can Be On Disney Channel)?

We have a good friend who recently landed a series-regular role in a Disney Channel show. He is thrilled to have this role, but he spends many hours nearly every day on the set working. He does not have much time to do the things that kids often do — hang out with friends, watch TV, go to the mall… He stays very busy, but he also loves it!

So a child really has to be totally dedicated to be on Disney Channel!

So, if you’ve determined that your child really loves to act, sing, and dance and is good at one or all of these things and is willing to work hard, what can you do to help your child achieve this dream?

If Your Child Wants to Be on Disney Channel What Should You Do?

If your child wants to be on Disney Channel you first need to:

  1. Make sure your child understands that while acting can be fun and entertaining, it can also be tiring and stressful. Before you proceed any further, it is important that your child knows exactly what will be expected of them as an actor and what they will need to do if they want to try to be on Disney Channel.
  2. Find a good acting class or acting coach. Before you even take your child to an audition, you may want a coach to help prepare your child for auditions. Disney is a popular business, and when choosing their performers they want only the best.  So it is important that your child be well prepared for a Disney audition. A coach or class can help with this.

Acting Coaches

You can find acting coaches just about anywhere, but you need to be careful when selecting a coach to be sure you get the best coach for your child. Be sure to ask a prospective coach questions to make sure he or she is the right person to help your child and has a personality that is a good match for your child. If Disney is your child’s goal, then finding a coach with Disney experience might be helpful.

You should make sure that the coach is qualified to teach acting and experienced in working with children. Check into their background and qualifications. Ask other people for opinions about the coach. Your child’s safety is important, so you should always be cautious when letting your child work with someone you don’t know.

It is also a good idea to ask other people for recommendations for coaches and acting classes. Even though no one coach is right for everyone, if someone recommends a coach, add that coach to your list of possible coaches.

When it comes to getting a good acting coach for your child, you might have to spend a little extra money, but it will pay off if your child is able to get into Disney Channel auditions and especially if your child lands a role with Disney.

Disney Auditions

If the coach feels your child is ready to audition, then you can begin looking for Disney auditions near you. Depending on the roles your child wants to audition for, there may be times when you will have to travel a long way to an audition.   Going to auditions typically takes up a lot of time and can be draining from start to end.

Video-taped Auditions

If you are lucky, such as with the Shake It Up Dance Contest that Disney recently held, you may be able to create and submit an audition video to be considered for a role. When submitting an audition video, you need to make sure that the quality of it is good enough to show what your child can do. For more tips on creating audition videos, see “How Do You Create Videos of Acting Auditions to Submit to Casting Directors?

Open Auditions

Some Disney Channel auditions are worldwide, and these open auditions may occur several times throughout the year in various locations.  If you happen to miss one, don’t worry. There will certainly be more in the near future.

If your child goes to one of the open Disney auditions, just remember that you will probably have a long wait. Go early, and be patient. And when your child’s turn finally comes, remember it is important for your child to be energetic, happy, and confident during the audition.  Personality is very important.

With all the new television shows and movies that are coming out on a regular basis, there are always good possibilities for more auditions. Just keep your eyes open for opportunities, and when you see an opportunity, don’t wait to take action.

Keep your child in acting classes or coaching so he or she will continue to grow as an actor. This will increase your child’s chances of getting into Disney Channel auditions and increase your child’s chances of getting a role with Disney. The more auditions your child has, the better your child’s chances are of obtaining a role in a television show.

Remember, as always, that the best way to get Disney auditions or other TV and film auditions is through a good talent agent. For more on talent agents, see “What Do Talent Agents Do?
