NUTCRACKER AUDITION PREP

  • Project Ballet only holds auditions for lead roles.

  • Only dancers in Level 4 and up are eligible for lead roles.

  • All other roles in the production are automatically assigned and do not require an audition.

  • In the audition descriptions, the words "Returning Level 4" or "Returning Level 5" indicates those dancers who are returning to their level for a second year. Students who are newly promoted are ineligible.

  • For the purposes of auditions, Advanced female dancers have been assigned to either Advanced Group A (Lauren, Frankie, Amelia, Mercy, Hannah, Ella, Nina, Zoe) or Advanced Group B (Aubrey, Victor, Violet, Jasmine, Elisabeth, Ashley).

  • Please review the following audition requirements. Each dancer should carefully discern which auditions they would like the attend. Being eligible to audition does not mean that you are required to audition. You may attend as few or as many auditions as you would like. (However, it is prudent to remember that the more auditions you attend, the more you increase your odds of securing a role.)
