Nutcracker Auditions

Nutcracker auditions for dancers four years of age and older will be held Saturday, August 25th at our host studio, Barbara's Conservatory of Dance.  Dancers should arrive 30 minutes prior to audition time to register and complete forms (please note: there is no audition fee).  Please wear appropriate dancewear and shoes.  With the exception of adults in the party scene, all dancers must currently be enrolled in ballet classes that meet at least once a week (at any studio).  

If you would like to save time, you may print and complete the Nutcracker audition form and conflict sheet ahead of time. Each dancer needs to complete and turn in an audition form and a conflict form, even if you do not have any conflicts. Please read the conflict form carefully as there have been some changes this year.

Performance dates for Nutcracker are December 7-9, 2018.
