Dancers should arrive at least 15 minutes before their audition time to check-in. The audition will consist of a short warm-up followed by choreography & technique. Dancers should bring appropriate footwear if auditioning for tap and hip hop roles.

*All dancers must have previous dance training.

*Great opportunities for students who are proficient en pointe.

*Not all dancers will be cast.

Audition Attire:

Leotard and flesh-tone tights, or slim t-shirt with black tights. Ballet slippers, with tap shoes & hip hop sneakers if needed, and pointe shoes for those with training en pointe. Hair should be slicked back, long hair secured in a bun, headband if needed for bangs.

Rehearsal information:

Youth rehearsals begin September 23, 2023. Dancers should expect to have rehearsals every Saturday and Sunday from the weekend after auditions until the show dates. Anthony Williams’ Urban Nutcracker is a professional production and requires a serious commitment on the part of all of our young dancers and their families to attend all rehearsals. Rehearsals run September-December – mostly on weekends – in Jamaica Plain, MA.

No one is charged a participation fee, but there may be a small monetary investment for your child’s tights and shoes. Your child may be cast in a scene that requires specific costuming such as black sneakers, or nude jazz shoes, or a nude leotard to wear under costumes, etc. All children will need correct tights and slippers.
