Amelia charmed our judges with her audition videos "full of energy and personality" and they "sensed a real passion for what she was doing". One member of our judging panel was particularly impressed with Amelia's dance audition and "felt that she had listened to the lyrics and thought about her emotions whilst dancing, which really added to the performance". Brilliant, Amelia!
We are really excited that Amelia will also be joining us in our Principals troupe on a partial scholarship.

Our 2021 Winner
I don’t know what pieces to do for my audition. What should I do?
I am only confident in one discipline. Can I still apply?
Of course! Showcase your strongest discipline and then do your best with a second discipline. We are not looking for perfection or a finished “product”. We are looking for passion, determination, enthusiasm and potential. Have fun with it!
I applied last year. Can I apply again?
Yes, definitely! We’d love to see how you have progressed over the last year!
I used to attend MMTT but I am not currently enrolled. Am I allowed to apply?
Yes. The rules have changed this year and, providing you meet the rest of the applicant criteria, you are more than welcome to apply.
I am not available on Sundays. Should I still apply?
Unfortunately, all MMTT rehearsals take place on a Sunday for 3 terms per year so, if you are not available on this day, there is no point in you applying. If you availability changes in the future, feel free to apply for the scholarship another year!
Can I ask somebody to help me with my audition videos?
Yes! Of course you can! This is proactive and shows great initiative.
Do I need to be in costume for my auditions?
No. This is just an informal audition process so we can see your potential and your personality. Just make sure that you are comfortable and confident in whatever you are wearing.
My audition video files are too big to email. How should I send them?
You have a few options here:
Will I receive any feedback for my audition?
Yes. All judges will provide short, written feedback for each of the Top 3 auditionees.
If I do not get selected for the ‘Top 3’ this year, can I re-apply next year?
You most certainly can. We love to see past applicants returning to showcase what they have learnt.
