Network Ten and FremantleMedia Australia kick off auditions for the much-anticipated Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance on 7th October 2007 in Adelaide – the first stop on a five city SYTYCD national tour.
Our judges will be scouring the country for dancers skilled in every genre from the ‘street’ styles of hip hop, to the best of ballroom, salsa, quickstep, jive and more in the hope of unearthing Australia’s favourite dancer.
People who think they can dance can audition at the following locations:
· ADELAIDE – Sunday, October 7 at the Grainger Theatre. 91 Hindley St, Adelaide.
· BRISBANE – Saturday, October 13 and Sunday October 14 at the RNA Showgrounds. Gregory terrace, Bowen Hills.

Auditions are open to people aged between 18 and 35 and will commence at 9.00am each day.
Dancers are encouraged to arrive early in their hottest dance gear to start stretching. They need to be prepared to ‘krump’, ‘swing’ and ‘samba’ their way through vigorous dance routines.
Dancers need to bring with them a copy of the dance track that they wish to perform to for the judges.
TEN’s chief programming officer, David Mott, said, “This is the perfect time for TEN to embark on the search for Australia’s favourite dancer.
“After the popularity of the US version we are confident that Australian dancers will descend on the auditions in their thousands.”
“This vibrant format possesses excitement, glamour and style – a perfect addition to what already is a dynamic entertainment line up for TEN.”
FremantleMedia Australia CEO, Mark Fennessy, is excited to be working with the team at TEN on another marquee series, “We really have become specialists in event television and by plugging into the expertise created through brands such as Australian Idol and The Biggest Loser we’ll deliver a unique series beyond all expectations”.
“The senior production team we have in place for So You Think You Can Dance will be the best in the business, with an uncanny ability to engage Australian audiences across all key demographics.”
An announcement will be made shortly regarding the host of So You Think You Can Dance.
