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!

2021 Auditions: September 19th


You can log on to your account or go to our classes page to register.

We will assign you an audition time.

To try out you must be at least 6 years of age as of September 19th and have been in 2021 summer classes and are registered for 2021-2022 classes this fall.

Depending on the part you receive, rehearsals will be Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays this fall.

All dancers who audition will receive a part. Rehearsals are mandatory, at auditions you can specify if you have a conflict (it may effect your part) however no absences are allowed Nov 19-21.

Our performance dates are December 4th and 5th, we may choose a backup performance date if needed.

If circumstances allow we will ask some dancers to perform onstage without a mask, however backstage and rehearsals masks will be optional or mandatory (depending on the situation at the time). On your audition sheet you may choose your level of comfort with this.

Fee includes: Audition fee, rehearsal costs and costume rental. Parents are required to volunteer for one job to help with the show.
