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 seven and older will be held Sunday, September 26.
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 and 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 on our website before attending the audition.
