So You Think You Can Dance Returns to Ten

After a four year absence from our screens So You Think You Can Dance will return to our screens in 2014.

Auditions will commence in September and producers will travel across the country in search of dancers who represent the best Australia has to offer. Those who stand out during auditions will be shortlisted and the best of the best will then work towards the live competition shows.
