    Hi my name is Jasmine Jemison and I am 15 years old. I could go on and on of why I would like to be apart of this production but I will summarize it up. I love not just acting but, singing and dancing as well with a passion. I have been taking dance classes since I was 6 and I am currently in an acting academy. I’ve also been in a play production by the name of “High School Musical” and I played “Martha”. What I want to do with the rest of my life is this and I can’t wait to start off with doing many productions if I am able to do so. Being apart of this movie would mean the world to me and I would put my all into this. Not just for me but, for the viewers wanting to watch a great movie. I absolutely loved Teen Beach Movie and thought to myself I could do the same thing if I was fortunate enough. Even if I don’t get chosen I will still love everything about this up and coming movie and be even happier for the people who did make it into this movie. All in all someone’s dream became true and that’s enough for anyone to be happy about it, including me. Thank you!!

  8. Grace Sutanto September 3, 2014 at 10:42 am

    Hi, my name is Grace and I am 15 years old. I am a huge fan of disney (specifically Teen Beach Movie) and I want to audition for the sequel, Teen Beach Movie 2 as a dancer. I have been dancing since I was 6 and I still continue my dance life. I can work on acting a little bit thought.
    – Name: Grace E. Sutanto
    – Gender: Female
    – Age: 15
    – Ethnicity: Indonesian (just saying that if you know Bali, you will know Indonesia. If you don’t, I’ll just say this, its below Singapore and Malaysia and above Australia)
    – Eyes: Brown (I use glasses but when I dance I don’t use them)
    – Height: 168cm
    – Weight: 49 kg
    – Hair: Brown with a mix of brunette (I don’t know why)
    – Type of person: Athletic, artistic
    – Skin Type: Tan but a little bit whiter…
    Basic Description:
    – I use braces and in 6 months (hopefully) I will take it off.
    – I do lyrical, contemporary, jazz, a little bit of hip hop and gymnastics
    – Yes I speak English (unexpected for an Indonesian)
    – I have 3 sisters
    I am willing to become a dancer in the movie because my biggest passion is dancing (i just need to know how to get in America). I was wishing for this for my entire life because I want to prove to my parents that I can’t just be a girl painting and drawing in the room but I have other talents. Sometimes, my friends and sisters don’t see that because they might have a different opinion about dancing and being in a movie. I have done acting before and I was part of the main character. Anyways, I was a lead dancer for an assembly when I was younger and I am in a dance club with students around my campus. Ross Lynch is my biggest role there model because of his dancing, singing, acting and musical skills. He has influenced me in becoming a better dancer so I hope to meet him someday. If you are reading this, I can tell the directors, producers, etc. that being in a movie is the biggest opportunity for me and it helps in my career to be a better dancer and to push myself. Audiences that are reading this, just saying that I would have made an entire essay about this but no so… thanks and contact me if you have any comments
    BTW those who sends spams to email, don’t bother
