This year is our 5th Anniversary Production and we invite you to join us! Our mission as the GSBC is to give recreational dance students an opportunity to perform locally in professional quality productions while learning in a warm, encouraging, and nurturing environment which is greatly beneficial in the lives of children, teens and young adults! Miss Seanna and Miss Susan each bring over 25 years of experience in producing an intricate winter production of this magnitude, mainly the Nutcracker, but now with a fresh new start including new direction, choreography, props, sets and costumes which is an enormous investment. Thank you for joining us on this dance journey! All students auditioning must be a dance student enrolled in a studio participating in subjects auditioning for! Everyone will be considered for roles within their appropriate age group as established by the artistic directors. Students will be chosen for routines according to their age, size, ability and demonstrated commitment to dance. Students who are small for their age might be considered for a role from a younger age group if costume size might be in question. All decisions are at the sole discretion of the Directors and are final! Every role is important for the success of this production, from the very basic to the most advanced. Regardless of the part, this is a great experience for all participants! Attendance for rehearsals is mandatory! If you do not think that you or your child will be able to commit to, understand and accept these guidelines, this may not be the appropriate activity for you and your family. Performances will be on December 1st at Lynn City Hall with prior week production rehearsals. All families must volunteer in some capacity and help promote ticket sales among family, friends and the community. We will share letters and social media posts regularly and ask that everything be shared to help raise awareness for the production and the non-profit ballet company. Jobs vary in degree of commitment by roles. All are asked to volunteer in one pre-production activity and be available to assist the weekend of the production. Soloist’s and lead’s parents are automatically heads or of committees! We will help find the best fit for each person or people heading a committee.
