Young dancers!  Here is your opportunity to dance with Bangor Ballet in the Nutcracker in a Nutshell 2018!

Saturday, September 8 - All dancers ages 8 to 12 are welcome!

First Group:  2:30 – 3:00; Registration no later than 2:15:   All boys age 8 and up and girls age 8 through 10

The audition for both groups will include work on a few steps and combinations from Nutcracker.  It is not necessary for girls to be dancing on pointe to participate in auditions.

All dancers must register in the Bangor Ballet costume shop on the ground floor of 14 State Street no later than 15 minutes prior to the auditions. Please bring a headshot or other photo of the dancer with hair up in a bun for girls (does not need to be a professional photograph) and a resume if available (these are not required to audition but are helpful to us if easily available).

Rehearsals will take place primarily on Saturday afternoons starting Saturday, September 15 (there may be some Sunday afternoon rehearsals as we get closer to the performances).  Please bring a list of any rehearsal date conflicts.  A parent or guardian must accompany the dancer to sign release forms and must remain in the building during the audition (please feel free to wait in Bangor Ballet’s office). 

The performance dates for Nutcracker in a Nutshell 2018 are:

November 25 (Dover-Foxcroft)

December 2 (Belfast)

December 8 and 9 (Brewer)

The auditions will be on the 4th floor of Thomas School of Dance, 16 State Street, Bangor, ME.
