Here at SCB we are happy to host a second Nutcracker performance opportunity for Billings dancers through our beloved Nutcracker Tea Parties! Tea Party performers get to perform beloved roles from the entire ballet for an admiring audience of all ages.
To be part of this fun production, dancers will need to attend the audition, which is at the same time as the San Diego Ballet auditions for your convenience! When you get to the studio, please remember that you will need to fill out a separate registration form for the Tea Party audition. The audition fee is $10, and, if you are already auditioning for the San Diego Nutcracker, then the $10 fee you have paid for that applies to our Tea Party audition too. There is no need to pay twice! Once your dancer has been cast in a role, you will be asked to pay a $25 participation fee which covers all aspects.
Rehearsals for most parts will be on Saturdays starting Oct 28, and these rehearsals will not conflict with San Diego Ballet Nutcracker rehearsals, so you are welcome and encouraged to participate in both! Some parts for advanced dancers will be learned through variations class for those students.
Be part of this beautiful holiday tradition, learning and performing really fun roles, and support our studio in the process!
What's more, we use this as a way for SCB to bring more dance to our community too. SCB Company spearheads performing Nutcracker excerpts at various community events including the Food & Gift Festival at MetraPark, and the Festival of Trees raising money for children in need. We also take Nutcracker excerpts to public school children bringing arts into schools! So, if your dancer loves performing, they could have ample opportunity through Nutcracker season depending on their role
Join us for a full and magical Nutcracker season with SCB!
See our San Diego Ballet Audition information for details about audition times, and mark your calendars for Tea Parties on December 16th with a dress rehearsal on the 15th.
Please reach out if you have any questions!
Performers in our Tea Party must be ages 9 and older.
