We are proud to announce the return, after a two year hiatus, of DJ skills and mentoring initiative FBi Radio Dance Class.
FBi Radio Dance Class is a unique, comprehensive program designed to uncover, train and mentor a new crop of talent in the electronic music industry. The program matches emerging DJs with established mentors and figureheads of the Eora / Sydney scene.
Mentored by the best in the biz, FBi Radio Dance Class trainees learn the ropes in DJing and so much more, including running events, hosting radio shows and releasing music of their own.
Now in its fifth year, FBi Radio Dance Class has an impressive list of alumni, kick-starting the careers of DJs like Ebony Boadu, Lauren Hansom, Crescendoll and AK Sports. Hopefully in the future, we’ll add your name to that list.
TRAINING & MENTORS
This year, six trainees will be selected to participate in a series of master classes delivered by FBi Radio presenters and alumni including Andy Garvey, Adi Toohey, Natalia and many more. These workshops will cover DJing with CDJs, mixing vinyl, radio presenting, event production, music business and bookings plus loads more.
Trainees will each be paired with an FBi Radio mentor who they’ll join on-air over the course of a month to learn what goes on behind the scenes of a radio show. Dance music needs a dance floor, and the trainees will learn the ins and outs of putting on club nights and performing live.
APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN
We invite applications from women, non-binary and trans folk with excellent taste in new dance music and the passion to become a DJ. No prior experience is required to apply. Applicants will be assessed purely on their passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of electronic music. If you love hip hop, disco, techno, house or any other dance genres, apply before 11:59pm, Thursday 9 February.
