Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) - It takes poise and self discipline to perform in the Moscow ballet's 20th anniversary of the Russian Nutcracker.
On Monday night local dancers tried to prove they have what it takes to perform with the pros when the ballet comes to town.
The audition was held at the Grand Junction Academy of Dance.
Hopefuls from the ages of 6 to 17, with at least one year of ballet training, got an opportunity they won't soon forget.
Marisa Kuahr, an audition participant, says “it's an opportunity to look forward to, it's just an experience, you get to work with them. You get to know what they are like, how they dance. It can be intimidating a little but in the end it’s great.”
The 20th anniversary great Russian Nutcracker will be performed at the Avalon Theater on December 10th. Tickets are currently on sale online for the performance.
