Our biggest piece of advice is to have fun and be yourself!

I am a Group director. How can I register my group to perform?

Group directors or agents only are encouraged to email events@upagency.com.au to express interest in performing at an event. An expression of interest (EOI) form will be emailed to you with specific details regarding registration.

You will need to bring:

What time will my audition be scheduled?

Auditions are scheduled throughout the day. Please keep the whole day free in case you are shortlisted and called back for a further audition on the day.

I was unsuccessful in the dancer auditions. Can I still register for Santa's Parade?

Absolutely! As long as the cut-off date has not yet passed, we welcome your parade registration.
Unfortunately we are unable to accept parade registrations after the due date as the costume orders have very strict deadlines.

How hard are the dancer auditions?

To ensure we can provide our artists with the best possible talent, our choreographers will have difficult sections for your to perform at an audition. We need to ensure that you can follow directions and changes easily with a positive attitude.

Do I need to prepare a routine for my audition?

No. Our choreographer will teach and guide you through the audition.

I can't attend the scheduled audition date. Can I re-schedule?

Unfortunately due to our schedule we are unable to provide another audition date.

If you are successful in gaining a lead role, you will be emailed details of your compensations and benefits. All details will be provided to you in full when you are offered a role.

Can I send my audition registration via email?

No. All audition registrations must follow the same process to be processed correctly.

I have missed the auditions. What can I do?

If you have missed the audition, you can send your resume, head shot and showreel to info@upagency.com.au. Please note that if all roles are filled on the day of the audition we will not be able to make room for a late audition.
