Dancer Registration


The Desert Diamonds are a dance performance company based in Alice Springs specialising in Commercial Dance and Commercial Burlesque.  We provide dance training as well as produce Cabaret Shows annually, perform locally and interstate in festivals and for various Corporate bookings.

We are currently looking for dancers to join our company as we work towards our next Show in September 2020.

We are looking for professional and committed people who would like the opportunity to develop or continue to develop their dance training as we provide various dance performance opportunities throughout the year.  The Diamonds are a body positive, inclusive and diverse troupe, with a strong sense of self and supportive in nature.


We strongly encourage you to come to our Class and Rehearsal prior to the audition on Tuesday and Friday's 5.30pm - 7.30pm starting 28th JULY to learn the Audition pieces, experience class and what the minimal ongoing commitment will be should you be selected.

Showcase Artist Submission


The Desert Diamonds produce two professionally developed Cabaret productions annually.  Our 7 previous sold out shows are a testament to the quality of our productions and we are looking to create further opportunity for local NT artist through our NEW Showcase Artist Program. 

Looking for NT based Artists for a guest spot in our Hero's and Villains’ Cabaret Line Up for our show in the

Our Showcase artist program is an in-kind program offering Act Development assistance with our directors, performance opportunities and media coverage.   Working together to develop your ideas you will showcase your act alongside our resident feature artists and Desert Diamond Dancers.
