• We suggest you attend our pre audition prep class on Tuesday November 22nd so that you can familiarise yourself with our choreographers style and teaching techniques. This will help you to feel more comfortable on audition day
• Choose an outfit that stands out, compliments your figure and is easy to dance in.
• Bring water, sweat towel, snacks and make up with you on the day to touch up and refuel in breaks. This will be a long audition for some.
• Be yourself, smile and ask questions on the day if you need too.

Pre season rehearsals begin in January 2017 and continue through until our first trial home game. Rehearsals are held on a Tuesday night at 6.30pm and run for up to 3 hours at a time.
