Northeast Ballet, under the direction of Darlene Myers, is holding auditions for their annual presentation of the Nutcracker Suite Ballet, this is an open audition for all talented dancers from any location or school in the Capital Region and beyond. There is an audition fee of $25 for all dancers and the audition times are as follows:

  • 1-2pm Children’s roles (Ages 6 - 12)
  • 2-3pm Act One (Adult roles)
  • 3-4pm Variations (Ladies please bring pointe shoes)
  • 4-5pm Professional dancers (Paid positions)

Levy is auditioning for the first time ever and I can't wait to share the experience with her. The Nutcracker is one of our family's favorite traditions each year, and I love the opportunity to have local children be a part of it. Northeast Ballet has been the resident company of Proctors Theater since 1990 and this year they celebrate their 26-year anniversary of Nutcracker performances at Proctors Theater on Saturday December 7th and Sunday December 8th. Guest Artists for the role of Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier are Artists Lauren Lovette and Chase Finlay of New York City Ballet, it is a not to miss performance and a must do on our list of holiday events!

Plus, select dancers will also have a chance to perform at the Hall of Springs in Saratoga Springs on November 17th for the SPAC Action Council’s Annual Nutcracker Tea, one of my most favorite events of the entire year (plus it ALWAYS sells out so make sure to get tickets!).
