Miami City Ballet will be putting on their Nutcracker in several Florida venues other than in Miami/Fort Lauderdale, (Clearwater, Naples) and will be holding auditions for students. I was curious as to whether anyone knew what sort of roles are available for the 4'-10 to 5'-2" student (ages 14-16)?

Thanks for any info on any roles for any ages.


I am going to cross post this for broader "coverage" since no responses yet.
THanks for any info

Perhaps you should call MCB directly to get information on this question. Look in Dance Magazine or on the Internet for the phone number. They may even have an email address.

You need to live close enough to those venues to go to rehearsals a few times a week, and everyday the week after the audition if you get a role.
I answered this on another site. Anyway my daughter did it in Naples for 6 years I know the roles well she did angel, party girl, party boy, polichinelle, soldier, hoop understudy tea. I know the heights well. If only 4'10 you can be a poly or soldier. If over that to 5'2 you can get hoop and chinese tea.
