Participation Requirements

In order to be eligible to audition for the 2022 Nutcracker, students must meet the following requirements:

  • Take ballet in the summer of 2022.  Attendance in our summer program will be taken into consideration when we cast for Nutcracker parts.
  • All students auditioning must have taken ballet in the 2022 school year and must be 7 years of age or older and have completed a full year of Combo III, or PB I (with previous Combo III experience) level experience or higher.  
  • Students will not be allowed to audition without payment and a signed enrollment on the parent portal. There will be a ½ hour meeting for all parents at the beginning of each audition.  If this is your first year in the Nutcracker the dancer must have an adult representative present to go over the commitment to participating. Parents will have the opportunity to volunteer as helpers in various areas at this meeting. A zoom link will be available if you are unable to attend in person.
