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.”Register at www.nutcracker.com/youth-auditions/sign-up-to-audition .

The goal at Dance Project St. Louis is to teach and prepare every student well, to provide a positive and uplifting environment, to provide the knowledge and skills students will need if they choose dance as a career, and to make every student’s dance experience valuable and memorable. Dance Project Saint Louis is a school dedicated to providing an excellent dance education and creative and challenging performing opportunities for students. Nearly thirty Dance Project students have received college scholarships for dance.

altThe Peabody Opera House and its 3,500-seat main theater were completed in 1934 as part of the Municipal Auditorium complex that included the 9,300-seat Convention Hall that later became known as Kiel Auditorium. Construction on the Convention Hall was not completed until 1936. The Opera House features six to seven venues, including an ornate main theatre with approximately 3,500 seats and a two-story front lobby (constructed entirely of Tennessee and Ste. Genevieve marble), four small side theaters or halls (with a capacity of up to 700 seats each), an exposition hall, basement restaurant/bar space, offices, dressing rooms and other support spaces for the facility.

During its height of activity, the Opera House attracted the world's finest performers, including concert artists, Broadway shows, plays, dance companies, symphonies, blues, jazz, country-western, rock, grand opera and light opera. It also presented several Veiled Prophet balls, choral pageants, civic events and traveling exhibits.
