Important Information:

  • Please note that Soloists selected for the TAC or TBP team are not required to register or pay for the Troupe Audition. You will be automatically included in the Troupe selection. However, you must still attend the Audition day so we can assess Troupe standards and consider you for additional items such as Solo, Duo, Trio, and Ensemble in other dance styles like Lyrical, Jazz, Acrobatic, National, or Demi Character. Results for the TAC audition will be released by 15th July 2024. If you are not selected for the TAC, you may then register for The Apprentice Audition

  • We seek your understanding that only top 10% of dancers (base on scores) will be selected during the Audition due to high demand and limited spaces. Another 10% will be selected for our 2nd team for training as a Solo or Duo in The Bridging Programme (TBP).
