Our Nutcracker performance dates are December 2nd, 3rd and 9th and our spring performance date is April 27th & 28th, 2024. All performances are at the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center except December 9th which is at the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon.
The audition will be a “master class”, much like your daughter/son would have in a studio ballet class with barre warm-up and combinations given. No solo dancing is required at the audition. We encourage any new dancers considering the audition to come for the experience of the audition process and to meet/see the artistic director. Parents/guardians are welcome to stay in the waiting area during the audition. Dancers will hear of their acceptance status within five days of the audition via the email address provided at the registration. Please watch for an email from the West Michigan Youth Ballet.
The cost to audition is $25 per dancer and $365 female/ $50 male to participate in the performance. We do offer a sibling discount of $100 per sibling. Cost of audition is due when you register. Payment for the performance is due with your signed dancer’s contract.
