FBi‘s Dance Class
FBi has always championed female talent, both behind the mic and behind the decks. Some of Australia’s most respected DJs, including Anna Lunoe and Nina Las Vegas, got their start at the station. We’re passionate about seeing more women take charge in the dance music scene, so with the support of V MoVement we’ve developed a comprehensive program to discover, train and mentor the next generation.
From a public callout, we selected five trainees to take part in a series of workshops with some of Sydney’s finest, learning basic DJ skills, radio presenting and how to navigate the industry (including a trip to this year’s Electronic Music Conference). Each trainee was paired up with a radio mentor to join on air and develop their skills even further – as well as holding down their own show for a month – Dance Class on FBi Click.
Dance music ain’t nothing without a dancefloor, so we helped the girls get their first gigs – and couldn’t be more proud to see their names popping up on parties across Sydney! (Try and) keep up with them below…
