Open dance auditions for the Mzansi Arts Development Ensemble (MADE) dance studio will be held from May 10 to 14, 2013.

MADE is searching for males and females between the ages of 18 to 35 with a raw talent for dance. The potential dancer must show an interest, zeal, zest and display inner talent to want to take up dancing as a career.

Auditions will take place from 09h00 to 16h00 on the following dates and at the specified venues and area:

May 10: KwaMashu Indoor Sports, KwaMashu
May 11: KK Hall, Claremont
May 12: Newtown A, Inanda
May 13: Lindelani Hall, Lindelani
May 14: V Hall, Umlazi

After each dance audition in the respective areas on scheduled dates, potential dancers will be selected on the basis of their talents, skills, ability to learn and thereby taking a career in dancing to another level. Four of the best dancers will be selected per area thereby forming a group of 20 dancers in total representing each of the areas i.e. Umlazi, KwaMashu, Ntuzuma, Claremont, Inanda. Therefore a total of 20 dancers will be selected, who will then undergo intensive training and education for the different types of dances MADE will be availing to the youth.

The judging panel will include Lucky Cele, Siyanda Mwandla and Vusi Makhanya.
