Outstanding male and female dancers who are 18 years (from 1st December 2018) and over.
What is ding looking for?
Ding is looking for exceptional dancers who are eager to join our team of fabulous performers. The existing cast have an excellent team/work ethic – we will be looking for likeminded artists.

Ding Warehouse (corner of James Street and Light Terrace, Thebarton). Enter off James Street.
There are two audition times you can choose from:
- Session 1: 5.45-7.15pm
- Session 2: 7.30-9.00pm
Please ensure you arrive 15 mins prior to your audition time to register and warm-up.
Which session should I attend?
We will be running the exact same audition in each session so please choose a time that suits you.
Do we have to register?
Yes you do! There are limited spaces per audition time slot. Please click on the registration link at the bottom of this page to register.
Do we need to bring a resume?
Yes! Please bring to the audition a small headshot that we can keep along with a copy of your resume. Resumes should include two professional or personal referees. (Whilst your training and experience is important we are just as excited to meet you in person and see what you can do.)
Will there be a vocal audition?
This audition is just for dancers. Follow ding productions on Instagram and Facebook to find out about other possible auditions.
What should I wear?
Wear something that makes you feel and look great. No baggy attire. Shoes are your own personal preference (sneakers or jazz shoes). Just keep in mind that the choreography will include technical elements such as kicks, turns and jumps.
Do I have to be a trained dancer?
Yes. Ding only works with the very best dancers. All of our current dance team have trained for many years in various genres.
What will happen at the audition?
When you first arrive please sign in so we know you have arrived and then begin warming up. You will be taught a section of choreography. Everyone will have an opportunity to demonstrate how well they can perform the choreography. There are no cuts throughout the audition. You do not need to prepare your own choreography.
Can others watch?
This is a closed audition so only people auditioning will be allowed inside Ding Warehouse.
When do we find out if we made it?
The nature of Ding’s work is that we hire on a project by project basis. Some people may secure a project contract right away and others might not receive an offer until 2019. We will keep a record of all dancers who audition for future consideration.
How else can I perform with Ding?
If you don’t feel like you are quite ready for Ding’s professional cast there is an opportunity to perform with the company this NYE at the Adelaide Oval. Go to this link http://ding.net.au/nye-adelaide-oval-2018 to find out more about how you can join the support cast in a volunteer capacity.
I can’t make this date when is the next one?
The last time we held a dance audition was two years ago. We are not sure when the next audition might be!
I am already working with ding do I need to audition?
If you are already working professionally with ding you do not need to audition.
