The Festival Ballet Virginia's performances of the Nutcracker are scheduled for Saturday, December 2, 2023 at the NOVA Community College Ernst Community Theatre in Annandale, Virginia. All students ages 5 and up, who are fully enrolled at the
Greater Washington Dance Center are encouraged to audition!
Auditions will be held on Saturday, August 26 at the following times:
5 and 6 year olds - 10:00 AM
7 and 8 year olds - 11:00 AM
9 year olds and up - 12:00 PM
All rehearsals will be held on Saturdays beginning September 9 until the show. Because our rehearsal period is short, it is imperative that your child be available for rehearsal every Saturday between 1 and 6PM. Most children will rehearse for 1 -2 hours each Saturday. It will be impossible to work around everyone’s schedule. We will not schedule around other activities such as soccer. No exceptions. Additionally, there is a participation fee of $250 to cover costumes, theatre and staffing costs and all participating dancer families will be expected to contribute volunteer hours towards the production.
