Once audition registrations close, late registrations may be considered; however, priority will be given to registrations received within the timeline advised above.
What time will my audition be?
Audition classes will be scheduled between 8.30am-5.00pm on the audition date. An email will be issued the week prior to the audition date which will include detailed information about the event and the facilities. Please note that we are unable to advise of your specific audition class time earlier, as the schedule for the day is dependent on the number of registrations.
What should I wear to the audition?

What should I bring to the audition?
Please bring your dance attire, a water bottle and your completed Physiotherapy Screening Form (details of this requirement are available within the registration process). On the audition day, you will be required to hand in your form, at which time you will receive an audition number to pin to the front of your leotard/t shirt.
Please note, camera’s and mobile phones are not permitted in the studio.
What photos are required for the registration?
