‘The Great Russian Nutcracker’ returns to New Mexico this holiday season, and they’re looking for a few good ballerinas.
The Moscow Ballet will be holding auditions today for dancers ages 7 to 17 to perform with the company here in Albuquerque this holiday season.
Renee Baca-Chavez, Director of Renee Antoinette’s School of Dance joined New Mexico Living to talk more about this audition and the upcoming performance.
“This is the fourteenth year that we’ve partnered with Moscow Ballet and it’s such a wonderful opportunity for the students. Because they’re professionals and they’re touring, they get to actually perform on the stage with them and they have beautiful costumes that are hand made in Russia, and they get to wear those costumes,” says Baca-Chavez.
Dancers will need to have at least 1 year of formal ballet training
Location: 920 S Main St. Belen, NM
