All Levels Welcome! Audition for our 15th annual performance of the Nutcracker. A completed audition form is required for each dancer. Print and complete both pages of the form before you arrive. Also, be sure to attach a photo of the dancer to the form in the space provided.

Please arrive 30 minutes before the audition time so that the dancer has time to settle in, have measurements taken and get ready!

Audition Attire

Dancers should wear what they wear in ballet class. Girls: Leotard, Tights & Ballet Shoes, with hair securely pulled back in a bun. Pre-Ballet may wear hair in a ponytail. Boys: T-Shirt, Tights/Leggings and Ballet Shoes. If you are on pointe, please bring your pointe shoes.

If you are new to our Nutcracker production this year, or would like to refresh yourself on what to expect, please download our “What to Expect at the Nutcracker Auditions” document.

The auditions are closed to the public, so we will have a check-in/check-out table where dancers will be signed in and out by parents or caregivers. The back door will be closed, so please enter on Park Street. The studio will be quite crowded, so please do not linger on the stairs or any lobby areas.
