Young Dancer Auditions:
Will be held on Saturday 9/16/17 @ the Armonk Ctr. for Dance located at 28 Kaysal Court, Armonk, NY from 11-1:15pm. Please R.S.V.P below.
All dancers auditioning should wear appropriate dance clothes and shoes and arrive with a neat appearance. Hair must be up and off of the face in a bun or french twist. All dancers MUST have a minimum of one year of ballet class and MUST be enrolled in a ballet class at any studio for the 2017/2018 academic year.
Please take a moment to review and explain to your child about the audition process and what may be expected. Not every dancer who auditions will be accepted. This is a general audition that many parts will be cast from. We do not hold separate auditions for each part with the exception of "Clara." Please see our FAQ's page for more info.
* If your dancer is auditioning for Clara, there is a minimum of one year prior participation in MCD's Nutcracker required, a minimum requirement of 2 years of ballet classes and a maximum height of 4'10".
*All dancers ages 9 - 11 wishing to audition for Clara MUST also audition in the 9-11 age group.
Please carefully review all rehearsal and performance dates before attending the audition to avoid any
later confusion. As we put this show together in ten, short weeks, there will be one excused absence for the season (barring an emergency). Weekly rehearsals are approximately 45 min (per role) until closer to show time when the rehearsal period is extended to accommodate running through the show in its entirety.
Please plan to arrive 10 - 15 minutes prior to your audition time to fill out a registration form if you have not pre-registered.
The audition fee is $10. Cash or check. Exact change is appreciated if paying cash.
All dancers should arrive in proper ballet attire with hair securely fastened in a bun, ready to dance.
