Exclusive to the Great Russian Nutcracker is the stunning Dove of Peace, with 20ft wingspan, and created by 2 dancers moving as one; Russian folk legends Father Christmas/Ded Moroz and Snow Maiden/Snegurochka who escort Masha and Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony; life-sized Matrushka Dolls; and whimsical 10ft tall silk puppets. New in 2014 is an authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha’s magical Toy Cabinet. Wearing intricately detailed costumes, many with shimmering Swarovski crystals, the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet bring Tchaikovsky’s master score and the holiday season to life!

 


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


Moscow Ballet’s “Dance with Us” Audition Director Olga Aruwill be present to select 60 student dancers to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers. Students are cast in ancillary roles of Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and more. 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.

Gotta Dance’ philosophy is to develop young dancers physically, mentally and artistically. The studio challenges, trains and inspires to create professional young dancers. Helping a dancer find the perfect rhythm of the music and making art with their body is the goal. Dancers gain performance experience at the annual dance concert at Raritan Valley Community College. Advanced dancers are offered exceptional opportunities to perform in Moscow Ballet’s Great RussianNutcracker during their New Jersey tour stop. Challenging auditions are held for positions in the Dynamite Dance Team and Showstoppers Dance Company. Additionally, students are recognized and awarded for their excellence in National Dance Week Syllabus Exams. The studio offer specialized classes in ballet, jazz, hip-hop, preschool dance, Street Funk, tap, pointe, variations, partnering and modern.
