If you dance with a partner or in a group make sure you bring your partners. Hot Ballroom and Latin isn't half as sexy as when you fly solo and a choreographed piece for 5 isn't the same on your own.
Week after week the chosen finalists will be challenged by a fusion of hot dance styles such as Tango, Rumbas, krump, Jive, Cha Cha, Foxtrot, Samba, Popping and Locking, Blues, Broadway, Paso Doble and Mambo to name just a few.
If you are up for the adventure of a lifetime and you think you have what it takes to become Australia's favourite dancer, you will be judged by three of the most accomplished australian-based dancer/choreographers in the world. They'll be seeing you soon but only if you come.
Dress to impress. There's a $500 cash prize for the weirdest, wildest, most wonderfully presented dancer at EVERY audition centre.
All contestants must bring with them two pieces of their own music to perform infront of the judges. It MUST be on a commercially purchased CD.
