• You may also be asked to perform a solo of your own creation, to your own choice of music. It must be no longer than 1 minute 30 seconds, so please make sure you have a piece of choreography to perform and you have your music with you. (See below for music details).
Please come prepared for all of the above.

NB. If the style of your solo dance requires a partner, please see below for competing/ non-competing dance partner information.

For the solo auditions, if your dance style requires a partner, you can be accompanied by either a non-competing or competing dance partner:

• Non-Competing Dance Partners:
You can be accompanied to the audition by a non-competing dance partner, who will dance with you for your solo performance, but will not be judged themselves. Non-competing dance partners must also be over 18 before or on 16/04/2011. All non-competing dance partners will also have to complete and sign an audition release form prior to taking the stage, and their performance footage may be featured in the programme. They must also bring photo identification. (See ‘what to bring’ on the previous page.)

• We recommend that you bring at least 2 options of songs/ music that you can dance to.
• All audition music must be brought in CD format.
• These music tracks should not contain either sexually explicit or overly violent lyrics.
• In order to ensure that the music is of a good quality, we also recommend you bring the songs on a CD that has been bought commercially.
• For our clearance purposes you must provide the record label and information for all music (which can be found on the CD). Songs downloaded from the internet, or a contestant created mix, are less likely to be cleared for use on TV. In this event, or any other in which we deem your music choices unsuitable, we will ask you to perform to one of the tracks from our lists.

Please try to arrive at the audition venue as close to the when the doors open as possible. If you are unable to get there for that time, please come along as early as you can. We would advise you to be there at least 90 minutes before the doors close to give you the best chance of being seen, however we will endeavour to see everyone, (although if you arrive once the doors are closed this may be unlikely). If we experience an unprecedented number of auditionees, we will endeavour to make arrangements to see you at an alternative venue.
We apologise if this happens but we cannot accept liability for any consequences of this happening.
Please check the website for information regarding the times for each location.

Please note that these could be long days. We recommend you wear appropriate clothing, as you may have to queue outside. Toilet facilities will be available, but we are unable to provide childcare facilities. We cannot provide refreshments for you and whilst there may be facilities to obtain refreshments at your own cost at the venue we cannot guarantee this and you are strongly advised to bring your own food and drink with you.

If you consider yourself to have a disability and require any extra help, support or advice for your audition, please have a word with any of the audition team as soon as you arrive.

We recommend that you keep your whole day free.
