Moscow Ballet is coming to Kalamazoo and will perform the Great Russian Nutcracker with the help of a cast of 60 local dancers.
Dancers from all local studios are welcome to audition. A representative from Moscow Ballet will conduct the auditions, cast parts and set the choreography. Dancers will rehearse locally, in preparation for the performance at Miller Auditorium on December 6.
The Great Russian Nutcracker is a great opportunity for dancers to perform on a big stage with professionals and live orchestra.
Interested dancers should register for auditions atNutcracker.com/auditions.
Dancers should wear a black leotard, pink tights and ballet slippers. More advanced dancers should bring pointe shoes. All dancers should wear hair in a bun or pulled off the face, for shorter hair styles.
Recommended ages are 7-17 years old, however, mature 5 and 6 year olds may audition. No prepared audition piece is required.
There is no audition fee. There is a $50 participation fee for the final cast.
