A Leap Above Dance Presents: The Nutcracker Dream

http://blog.aleapabovedance.com,[iframe]

Thank you all for your participation.  Your choreographers strive to make this a positive experience and thus our policy is that everyone gets a part.  For this reason we wish to remind you that this cast list is final and we will not accept conferences or e-mails about placement.  It is typical to have the same part for two years in a row but we will do everything we can to give you a different part the third time. 

Understudies: Once you've learned your part you don't have to come to every rehearsal.

Read entire cast list, you may have 2 parts!

Check your schedule some rehearsals start this weekend!
