Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow  Ballet's 2015 Performances!


Audition Director Ekaterina Uksusnikova was present to select 60 dancers to perform as Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and many more roles in the Great Russian Nutcracker on December 5 at 7:30 pm at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls. Applicants must 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. 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.”

altThe Mary W. Sommervold Hall is located at the Washington Pavilion. The building began as a renovation of Washington High School; the school was eventually relocated to another area of Sioux Falls. The building then became a venue for the performing arts, visual arts, interactive science, and educational opportunities. In addition to Sommervold Hall, the Pavilion features the Kirby Science Discovery Center and the Husby Performing Arts Center, and is home to cultural partners such as the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra, the Sioux Falls Arts Council, and the South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
