Make Way for Ducklings auditions
Dancers may audition for ballet, tap, and hip hop roles
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your audition time to check-in. The audition will consist of a short warm-up followed by choreography and technique. Dancers should bring appropriate footwear if auditioning for tap and hip hop roles. As always, our auditions are open to the ENTIRE CITY OF BOSTON and surrounding areas. Our mission is diversity through dance, and our goal is to cast our show with the most talented, and widely diverse dancers our community has to offer.
Girls: Leotard, tights, ballet slippers, tap shoes and hip hop sneakers if needed, and pointe shoes for those with training en pointe. Hair should be in a slicked back bun, headband if needed for bangs.
Boys: Slim t-shirt, boys tights, ballet slippers (white shoes preferred), with hair slicked back or in headband.
Dancers ages 12 and up must be fully vaccinated by the start of rehearsals (Sept. 19). Costumes for dancers ages 8-11 will include masks. All dancers must have previous dance training. Great opportunities for students who are proficient en pointe. Not all dancers will be cast. If your child is turning 8 before Dec. 1, 2021, they are eligible to audition. If they turn 8 after Dec. 1, they are not eligible to audition this year.
Youth rehearsals begin September 19, 2021. 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.
