Wednesday, June 24th - Saturday, June 27th: 

Individual auditions IN the studio.

In order to follow social distancing parameters, dancers will sign up for a 15 minute time slot and come into the studio one at a time (using specifically labeled entrance/exit). One dancer will be in the audition room, one dancer will be in a warm-up studio, and remaining dancers (and parents/siblings) will need to wait in the car/parking lot. Further information detailing safety parameters for these in-studio audition dates will be sent out to those signed up prior to the auditions.


**If your dancer is unable to make the choreography and auditions classes, or is uncomfortable with in-person auditions, he/she may submit a video audition. Please respond to this email for video audition guidelines.


We look forward to another fabulous Nutcracker!
