NUTCRACKER FAQs

COMMON QUESTIONS

Q – Does my dancer need to take ballet class to audition or participate in the Nutcracker?
A – No. It’s helpful for them to have ballet training, however some roles do not require ballet training.

Q – Does my dancer audition with his/her age or level?
A – We have an overlap in age to ensure your dancer can audition with the proper level.

Q – Does my dancer need to wear ballet clothes to auditions?
A – If your child doesn’t own ballet clothes, they may wear any dancer clothes of their choice. If your dancer owns ballet clothes he/she should wear them to auditions.
