Simply Classic Series Audition Is Open to Boys and Girls Ages 4-8

Audition Date: Sunday, January 20th, 2019

Audition Time: 1:00pm

Ages 4-8

Please arrive 15 minutes before the audition to register. There will be forms that must be filled out.  There is no fee to participate in the January 20th audition, but children must be pre-registered by Friday, January 18th if they are planning on participating in the audition. All children participating in the audition will be cast in the production. The audition is not to eliminate dancers but rather to help with the piece placement. This is a wonderful production resembling our Nutcracker production and a great opportunity for the children to be part of a professional production. Please click on the following link to pre-register http://www.almadanceschool.com/simply-classic-series-open-audition-registration-form/
