Coppelia

Auditions for the Coppelia

Casting for the production of Coppelia, will be held on February 18th, 2023. Dancers wishing to participate need to audition in the time listed below. Please audition with your level and age group. Auditions are a dancer's job interview, and they should dress appropriately. Auditions are positive experience and teachers are looking for the best role to showcase your child's abilities. We will have casting posted on Sunday February 19tht, on our website. Dancers must be at least 5 years old. All dancers must be enrolled in the level appropriate ballet clsas.

Casting results are final. We ask that when dancers make the choice to audition, they are prepared to accept any role offered to them. Casting is not taken lightly, and we work hard so that each dancer has a moment to shine. Unfortunately, not everyone can be the lead role. There are many things to consider when choosing roles and a beautiful dancer may not be right for that role. It is difficult but also very important for young dancers to learn to not take casting personally. This is a crucial skill in a performer’s life.

We are thrilled to announce that the Board of Directors have agreed to waive the traditional participation fee dancers pay to help cover some of the costs that go into a show of this caliber. Dancers costumes, sets and props are all provided for free of charge. 

Show shirts will be available and at the participant's expense.

 

Please be sure to thank our supportive board of directors and help them by locating sponsors for our show, so that we can eliminate performance fees forever.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals will take place Fridays from 4:30-8pm at the Auburn location & Saturdays 1:00-5:00pm at the Federal Way location Feb-May.

Dancers are expected to make these rehearsals a top priority. While we can work with a few absences, it is very important to have good attendance. Please AVOID missing any rehearsal but November rehearsals are extremely important for a smooth tech week. (this will mean dancers are not at the theatre late into the night) If you cannot avoid an absence please let us know as soon as possible. Make sure that any planned vacations are listed on your audition form.
