Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2014 Performances!


The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.” 

London School of Dance and Toby’s School of Dance are the Host Dance Studios and students from 24 local dance schools have participated in past performances. 

Toby’s School of Dance- Toby McPheeters is the owner, director and teacher of Toby's School of Dance and has owned and operated the studio for the last 54 years. Participation in ballet as a student is an exciting artistic experience. The result of proper ballet training is a beautiful, strong, and healthy body, which includes the development of good posture, grace, and poise. The self-discipline learned in ballet class can help a child to succeed in all undertakings. A qualified and well trained faculty and individual attention to each student’s technical or physical problems assure young students the maximum opportunity for progress. Ballet is the background and basis for all dance and should be studied first or along with other forms of dance. Toby studied dance from Edna McRae, Fronie Asher, Robert Bell, Nathalie Krassovska, Arthur Mitchell, Marjorie Tallchief, Victor Moreno, Randelyn Kaye, Nancy Cross, and Fernando Schaffenberg. A board member of the Dallas Dance Council for 20 years, she has served as Vice-President and Treasurer. She was Vice-President of Philanthropy, on the Board of the Richardson Council of the Arts, and is currently Co-Director of the student dancers in the Moscow Ballet "Great Russian Nutcracker"in Dallas. In November of 2007 she was awarded a Lifetime Achievement award from the Dallas Dance Council.


"Visually, the production is stunning."

altMcFarlin Auditorium at Southern Methodist University in Dallas opened in 1926 to address the school’s need for a chapel that could accommodate the entire student body.

The building’s use has since evolved, and while it remains a venue for school-related and community activities, it has also hosted a variety of performances, productions, and speakers. Among them have been the American Ballet Theatre, Luciano Pavrotti, Martin Luther King Jr., and Yo-Yo Ma.
