TRIAL CLASSES

The YYC Dance CONNECTed Nutcracker program provides a high quality performance opportunity for Calgary & area ballet dancers age 9-21.

 

Our mission is to unite like-minded, dedicated, technical ballet dancers, by connecting them to an elite performance and training opportunity, outside of their regular instruction.  Our Nutcracker corps de ballet & soloist dancers are selected from a variety of studios and communities throughout Southern Alberta, ranging in age from 9-21.

 

Auditions:

Casting auditions will be held in person on Sunday September 12th, 2021 at Evolutions School of Dance.  Registration for the audition must be done ahead of time through the link below. Dancer’s will participate in an audition class where a small selection of choreography will be taught and then presented to the audition panel.  

In Person Auditions:

9:00am-9:45am- Ages 9- 12

10:00am-11:00am- Ages 13+

 

Video Auditions:

Video audition submissions will be accepted for those who live outside of the Calgary area.  Please email v[email protected] for our video submission criteria.  All video auditions must be submitted by 11:00am on September 12th.  

 

Rehearsal Schedule:

Rehearsals are held primarily on Sunday mornings from September 19 to the end of November from 9:00am-11:00am.  Some soloist roles will require additional rehearsals on select Saturday evenings from 4:00pm-6:00pm.  Dancers are expected to make rehearsals a top priority.  Thanksgiving weekend is the exception as rehearsals will not be running that weekend.
