Slip on your dancing shoes: Auditions for season six of the Fox TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” will be held Friday and Saturday at Phoenix Convention Center’s South Building, 33 S. Third St. Registration begins at 7 a.m.; the doors open at 8 a.m.
Season five’s finalists are still competing every Wednesday night in the current incarnation of the hit summer show, but producers are already looking for the next crop of talented dancers. Contestants chosen from the Phoenix audition will participate in the 2010 airing of the show.
Auditions are free, but dancers must fill out and sign several required documents, available for download here.
All dancers must bring shoes; for females, that means heels. Dancers should also be prepared to stay two extra days in case they are called back by the show’s judges, Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe. A guest judge will also help screen applicants.
Dancers must be U.S. citizens, legal permanent residents of the U.S. or possess a current legal Employment Authorization Card enabling them to seek employment freely in the U.S. (i.e., without restrictions as to employer) by the date specified in the eligibility rules.
They must be between the ages of 18 and 30 on the first day they register for auditions. Any dancer who is a minor must also have a parent or legal guardian sign all required documents. Dancers must provide legal, valid proof of age when they register for auditions.

Season Five of “So You Think You Can Dance” currently airs Wednesday and Thursday evenings on Fox.
