Thursday, August 8 is a big day at Blairsville Dance Project! The studio will be open from 5:00-7:00 p.m for its last pre-registration day before the start of the 2019-20 season on Monday, August 12. This will also be the last chance to register onsite and lock in the 2018-19 tuition rates before the new season tuition increase. Most classes are nearing capacity, so don’t wait to register!
Beginning at 5:30 p.m., we will also start auditions for “Not the Same Old Nutcracker,” which will be held at the Union County Fine Arts Center on Saturday, December 21. All students will have the opportunity to participate in the performance, so auditions are only for those seeking a lead role.
Auditions are being held for the following roles:
- Clara: Any dance style (must also be prepared for acting audition)
- Wind-up Dolls (Ballerina, Harlequin, and Soldier): Jazz or Hip Hop
- Mouse King: Hip Hop or Acro
- Nutcracker: Any dance style
- Snow Queen: Pointe
- Sugar Plum Fairy: Pointe
- Dew Drop Fairy: Ballet or Pointe
- Mother Ginger
All those auditioning for dance roles must come prepared with a 1 minute routine showcasing his/her chosen dance style. Dancers may select any music for the audition, but please make sure it is age appropriate and does not contain profanity.
Those auditioning for acting roles must be prepared to perform scenes from the show in the role of the character for which they are auditioning.
Selected dancers will be required to be enrolled in classes at Blairsville Dance Project for the Fall season, as many rehearsals will take place during class time. Those selected for all roles must be available to attend Dress Rehearsal (date to be announced, week of 12/15).
