Open Auditions Friday, Oct. 10th for Dance Students in Cupertino, CA!


Moscow Ballet announces open auditions Friday, October 10th, at 6:00 pm for student dancers ages 7 to 16 years at Los Gatos High School Community Room, 20 High School Ct, Los Gatos CA 95030. The Saratoga School of Dance is host dance studio and will run the auditions.

Moscow Ballet “Dance with Us” Audition Director Mariia Skoruk will be in town to rehearse and work one-on-one with 60 student dancers, who are selected to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers, from October 18 to 21. Students are cast in ancillary roles of Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and more. They will perform in the Great Russian Nutcracker Dec 19, 8:00pm at the Flint Center in Cupertino. Moscow Ballet is pleased to work with Saratoga School of Dance as Host Dance Studio in Cupertino to make the open audition, rehearsals and performances possible.  Applicants must be between 7 and 16 years old, have at least one year of ballet training, dress in dance attire and may bring Pointe shoes. The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. “The payoff at the end of the rehearsals is the opportunity to be part of Christmas magic, to dance under shimmering lights with award-winning Russian dancers against exquisite hand-painted sets. It’s great for the kids. They get to dance in a professional production,” affirms Margaret Engle of Dance City Productions FL. Register at www.nutcracker.com/youth-auditions/sign-up-to-audition .

The Saratoga School of Dance provides a family oriented, child friendly, environment for students ranging in age from 16 months to adults of all ages. While the main emphasis is on age appropriate technique, this is not a competition school and equal importance is given to providing a fulfilling, fun environment for young dancers. Students are, however, well grounded in formal technique and are fully prepared to go to a competitive program should they choose.
