Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is coming to North Charleston, and the company is looking for local ballet students to fill children’s roles.
Local youth ages 6 to 18 can audition to be Party Children, Small Mice, Snowflakes, Russian Snow Maidens, and more through Moscow Ballet’s community engagement “Dance-with-Us ” program. Auditions are led by a Moscow Ballet company member/pedagogue in each performance city this fall.

Local auditions will be held on Saturday, October 5th at 10:30 am at Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio, Ballet Academy of Charleston (1579 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, SC 29407) and are led by Moscow Ballet danseur Mykhailo Shcherbakov. Auditions are free (although there may be a minimal casting and rehearsal fee), hand-sewn costumes are provided, and dress rehearsal is on stage with the Russian company the day of the performance.
