Every year since 1993, Moscow Ballet has engaged local ballet students and host studios in cities on the North American tour, offering them the most unusual opportunity of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a professional setting. Children ages 7 to 16, under 5”2” and with some ballet training are eligible to audition.

"Dancers glide...across the stage with strength and grace."

Comerica Theatre was originally named the altDodge Theatre. It took 15 months to complete with a grand opening in April 2002. Harry Connick Jr. was the first to play the venue closely followed by four sold out shows with Jerry Seinfeld. Tradition continues with Moscow Ballet's great "Russian Nutcracker" every December with beautiful costumes and a cast direct from Russia. From music to comedy to boxing, Comerica Theatre has been the home to many artists over the years as well as over 2M guests through its doors. Comerica Theatre will continue to entertain many more throughout the years.
