Twin Cities Ballet’s beloved holiday classic with a Minnesota twist returns to Ames Center on December 10–12, live and in-person!
Open auditions for dancers ages 7+ will be held Sunday, September 26th.
This is a wonderful opportunity for dancers to be a part of a professional ballet production and join one of the most widely attended holiday events in the area.
Every year TCB also performs a special matinee performance of A Minnesota Nutcracker for elementary & special education students and seniors. This year we are also kicking off our new Sensory-Relaxed performance series, the first of its kind in Minnesota!
There will be a mandatory Zoom parent meeting on Thursday, September 23 at 7:30pm. A $25 non-refundable audition fee will be due prior to the audition. Due to limited audition sizes, students must pre-register by paying the Audition Fee and filling out the Registration link before attending the audition. Audition fees are non-refundable.
