We very much look forward to seeing you at auditions.  We ask for you to arrive 30 min early to make sure your dancer can be measured, audition fee paid, and processed properly for auditions to begin on time.  We ask all dancers come in a black leotard, pink tights, and ballet shoes for female dancers / white t-shirt, black jazz pants, and black ballet or jazz shoes for male dancers.

 

If you are a tap 1 or above dancer (not for ages 5- beginning level) and could possibly be interested in a tap role (if we cast this; please be sure to notate on your audition form).  Please bring your tap shoes but note we may or may not ask you to display your tap skills, depending on the responses.

 

Thank you in advance for your time and participation.  We look forward to an amazing Nutcracker 2022 Season!

 

Much love and more appreciation,

Please note that your dancer may be asked to stay for the audition following their original audition time.  This will allow us to cast all dancers most appropriately.
