WAYNE, N.J. -- Calling local student dancers to audition in Hoboken on Tuesday, Sept. 27 to perform with Moscow Ballet’s Russian Nutcracker in Wayne.
Moscow Ballet Soloist and Audition Director Olga Aru will be present at Moscow Ballet’s local Host Dance Studio, Garden Street School of Performing Arts, 1018 Washington St., 2nd Fl., Hoboken to audition dance students from the area.
Student dancers, boys and girls, ages 7 to 17 years, and who have at least one year of ballet training, may audition for ancillary roles such as Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels and more.
The auditions are free; there may be a casting fee.
The selected children will perform Thursday, Dec. 8 at William Paterson University Shea Center.
Moscow Ballet’s “Dance with Us” program has brought thousands of student dancers on stage to perform in a professional environment annually for 24 years – a once in a lifetime experience for many children.
“It really brought the idea home that the Great Russian Nutcracker is a wonderful chance for children to be in a full-length production and experience first-hand an authentic classical ballet from this uniquely Russian company of remarkable performers.”
Olga Aru received her degree in ballet and dance pedagogy from Kiev State Ballet College, Ukraine, in 2008. She is a Laureate and award winner of the “Crystal Shoe - Dance Beyond Boards” competition and she performed at the “Mikkeli Ballet Festival” in Finland.
