Spring Show Audition Announcement

The Greater Niagara Ballet Company is holding auditions for our Spring Show which includes The Twelve Dancing Princesses and Les Patineurs.

Auditions will be held at the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center (NACC) on Sunday, January 15th. The NACC is located at 1201 Pine Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY 14301 (use purple door entrance on Porter Avenue side of the building).

Auditions are open to all dancers ages 5 and up.

Audition Schedule

Registration: opens at 11:30am

Ages 5-10: 12:00pm-12:30pm

Ages 9-14 (including those with minimal dance experience): 12:30pm-1:00pm

Intermediate/advanced (ages 11+ with at least several years of dance training): 1:00pm-1:30pm

Important Information:

  • Everyone auditioning should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled audition times (i.e. for an 1pm audition, you should arrive no later than 12:30pm).

  • Dancers will be expected to be fully warmed up prior to their audition times. There will be no time during the audition for warming up.

  • If you cannot make the audition date, you MUST contact us BEFORE auditions and this must be done through emailing us at greaterniagaraballet@gmail.com to make arrangements. This policy is in place for both new and returning dancers. 

  • Ages 11+ with enough experience should only attend the 1pm audition, not both the 12:30 and 1pm auditions. Enough experience is difficult to define, but dancers should either be on pointe or have at least 4 years of ballet training if not on pointe. Anyone who is 11+ who is unsure or who has considerable training in another genre of dance should contact us at greaterniagaraballet@gmail.com to inquire about which audition to attend

  • Most regular rehearsals will be on Sundays. Les Patineurs will generally be in the mornings and The Twelve Dancing Princesses in the afternoons.
