The Atlantic City Ballet to Hold Children's Auditions for THE NUTCRACKER, 9/7

No one is ready to say goodbye to summer just yet but for the Atlantic City Ballet, it will soon be that most wonderful time of year, with thoughts of a Sugarplum Fairy and a magical Nutcracker. The Atlantic City Ballet will once again cast local dance school students in a variety of supporting children's roles for their production of The Nutcracker. Over the last 31 years thousands of children have performed in the Nutcracker alongside the AC Ballet's professional company. "The opportunity for dance students to dance on stage with a professional company is an experience most children will never forget" says Ms. Papa, AC Ballet's Artistic Director. "After 31 years I now have former Nutcracker child dancers who were mice and angels, bring their children to audition." This 32 year tradition will continue this year with performances at Stockton Performing Arts Center and the Celebrity Theater at the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City. Auditions will be September 7, 2014 and will be held at the ACBT Performing Arts Academy, the official school of the AC Ballet. Auditions are open to all children ages 5 and up. Atlantic City Ballet is a professional company which is comprised of a diverse group of professional dancers from around the world and the US.
