|This article is about the challenge to enlist new dancers. You may be looking for the time-specific challenge.|
Dance studios from across the region are contacted, allowing dancers from within the region to audition. For the first round, each dancer has to make up a solo in the hopes that they will qualify to the second round, which is the choreography round. Of the first round, 20 dancers (including Michelle and Emily who have guaranteed spots since they are co-captains) will make it to the second. In the second round, the dancers have 30 minutes to learn choreography that Phoebe has taught them. After the round, the 12 dancers needed for the Nationals team are picked.
Round 1: Solos
After the series of solos, the 20 dancers that are picked are: Michelle, Emily, Eldon, Hunter, James, Riley, Beth, Amanda, Cass, Morgan, Jake, Thalia, Daniel, Noah, Richelle, West, Tiffany, Stephanie, Chloe and Giselle.
Round 2: Choreography
The remaining 20 dancers have thirty minutes to learn choreography that Phoebe has created. They audition in three groups of six and only twelve make it through, them being: Emily, Michelle, James, Riley, Amanda, Hunter, Giselle, Chloe, Eldon, Thalia, West and Daniel.
