Many of our dancers audition and perform in The Nutcracker each year. It is a fun experience for our dancers, and helps them experience a little more of the stage! The process of going through an audition, attending rehearsals, getting fitted for costumes, and then performing on stage for a crowd is what many of our dancers LIVE for!
Last year, many of our dancers chose to audition and perform with the Highlands School of Dance in Lakeland, and it was a wonderful experience for them! We’d like to see as many of our dancers, whether team or recreational-level dancers, try out for this exciting experience!
This year they are performing in two shows and are planning to double cast roles (certain dancers may perform in two different parts), and we are auditioning for Clara too.
