Moscow Ballet “Dance with Us” Audition Director Carolina Siscanu will select 60 student dancers to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers.

Applicants must be between 7 and 16 years old, have at least one year of ballet training, dress in dance attire and may bring Pointe shoes. The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. “The payoff at the end of the rehearsals is the opportunity to be part of Christmas magic, to dance under shimmering lights with award-winning Russian dancers against exquisite hand-painted sets. It’s great for the kids. They get to dance in a professional production,” affirms Margaret Engle of Charlottesville Ballet School. Register at www.nutcracker.com/youth-auditions/sign-up-to-audition .
