Applicants must be dressed in ballet attire and bring pointe shoes if on pointe. A prepared piece will not be needed. Additionally, all children auditioning must be able to commit to a rehearsal and performance schedule.

"The Moscow Ballet is excited to involve children from the greater Chicago area," said Southport Performing Arts Conservatory’s Artistic Director Altin Naska who will once again oversee the Chicago auditions and rehearsals for the Moscow Ballet’s annual production of The Great Russian Nutcracker. "Providing the chance to dance with professionals in Chicago’s greatest holiday tradition creates indelible lifetime memories for each dancer."

The Moscow Ballet’s The Great Russian Nutcracker is the unique telling of the classic story of Masha (Clara) and her Nutcracker Doll told with true Russian flair. In 2012, Moscow Ballet celebrates its 20th year of touring this performance across North America to much critical acclaim. The whimsical fantasy of Moscow Ballet’s The Great Russian Nutcracker is legendary with the piece firmly enshrined as a Christmas staple for audiences across the country and in Canada.
