25 years and 2 generations later, over 75,000 local ballet students, ages 6 to 18 with at least 1 year of ballet training, perform side-by-side with Moscow Ballet pros. In Casper, the “Dance with Us”  cast will perform their roles in the Great Russian Nutcracker on Thursday, December 7, 7:00 pm at Casper Events Center this holiday season. 
 
“It was such an amazing opportunity for our young dancers to grow and see how a professional company works...the costumes were breathtaking, says Julia Zhmutski of Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio Julia’s Dance Academy in Oklahoma City. The ballet students, who study at ballet schools in the area, auditioned for Moscow Ballet Audition Director Mariia Skoruk in the fall and rehearsed their roles at the Moscow Ballet Host Dance Studio Beautiful Feet Academy of the Dance Arts . The children’s roles are as Party Children, Small Mice, Snowflakes, Snow Sprites, Snow Maidens, and Act II’s Variations of the world’s five great heritages. The experience of auditioning for a professional, rehearsing with the company, being fitted in Moscow Ballet costumes, and performing for a live audience of a thousand or more is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience for these children! See the Dance with Us  student dancers perform in the Great Russian Nutcrackerwww.nutcracker.com/yourcity
