“The Nutcracker Ballet” auditions hosted by The Downtown Dance Theater
August 18, 2012 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
The Downtown Dance Theater, a nonprofit community dance company, is pleased to announce that we will be hosting our third annual community production of The Nutcracker Ballet in December 2012.
We will be holding open auditions for all roles (except for Sugar Plum and Cavalier, which will be danced by guest artists) Saturday, August 18 from 9am to 12:30pm at the Lakeway School of Ballet and Dance studio (180 W. Main Street, Morristown).
We would love for you to join us! We need boys and girls, men and women, including those without dance experience. Ballet auditions will consist of a brief class separated by age, so female students should wear a solid colored leotard, pink tights and ballet shoes (bring pointe shoes if applicable), and ballet bun. Individuals without ballet experience should wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
Adjudicators unaffiliated with participating studios will cast roles based on attached requirements.
The Audition Schedule is:
9:00am girls ages 4-7
9:20am girls 8-11
10:00am boys all ages
10:30am teen/adult non-ballet (male and female)
11:00am teen/adult ballet
12:00pm pointe and other talents (flexibility, acrobatics)- all ages
Parents are asked to arrive early to complete paperwork. Parents should also bring calendars, as they will be asked to list conflicts for rehearsals (held weekends beginning in September). If you are interested but unable to attend auditions on this date, please let us know and we can arrange for makeup auditions: email@example.com
