Student Cast in

Carnival of the Animals

We are very excited that you are interested in participating in the upcoming performance of Carnival of the Animals! This is truly an exceptional experience; this is a world premiere. Every dancer looks forward to the opportunity to work in a ballet where the choreography is set 'on the dancer'. You will be part of the creative process and experience the thrill of being the first dancer to perform your role. Others may dance the role in future productions, but you will be the first!
