Last year was the first year my daughter participated as a youth cast member in the Nashville Nutcracker with the Nashville Ballet and she made it on her very first audition!
She was taking classes at the Nashville Ballet at the time, but is not this year…and children between 8-11 don’t have to be Nashville Ballet students to be in the Nashville Nutcracker.
Children 12 years old and older do however need to be enrolled at Nashville Ballet this fall in order to audition.
The greatest part about the experience is that you only pay a $10 fee to audition and if selected, pay only a small fee for costume maintenance…and that’s it!
