I have no imformation regarding the level of ability or the purpose of the audition, but the pair of Bourees from Suite #3 in the old "Solos for the Tuba Player" collection come off well for many players.

I would avoid dance movements that are rhythmically repetitive with large intervals and no rests. Those are fabulous etude material, but could expose weaknesses to those judging/evalutating.

All-in-all, these dance movements collectively are rather treacherous. Unless one is a virtuoso player and would like to demonstrate this, looking elsewhere for material with which to impress others might be recommended.
