Whether your child is our first Clara or your son has the talent to star as Fritz, we are looking for a diverse cast of dancers, actors and performers. While no dance experience is needed, dancers of all levels are welcome to audition for dozens of roles in our diverse twist on the tradition Nutcracker Ballet. Our artistic director will be starring in Debbie Allen's Hot Chocolate Nutcracker on BET, and performing in our NJC Nutcracker this holiday season.
Dancing in The Nutcracker is a dream of many performers young and not so young. The kid-friendly ballet offers several roles for kids and adults, including both dancing and acting parts. If you would like to audition for a role call our office for more details and specific times.
Judges will be looking for those who have a nice stage presence. For some of the roles we must have trained dancers on pointe, others skilled hip hop and ballet folkloric dancers . During the audition, the performers will be asked to perform a few steps of a routine. You will also be asked to act in certain situations, possibly happy, sad, excited or angry.
Once a cast is chosen you will receive a specific rehearsal schedule for your part. Most rehearsals are on Saturday and Sunday and some week nights. Performers are expected to attend all scheduled rehearsals. Keep in mind that being part of The Nutcracker cast is a huge commitment, but also an extraordinary opportunity for to experience a live, staged performance.

Landed 2 movie roles + 2 other jobs within 3 months of joining Since joining Explore Talent you would not believe the responses I've been getting from directors, producers. The jobs I have landed and am getting ready to start filming are phenomenal. I've had the distinct pleasure of working on the sets of The Kingdom-starring Jamie Fox. Netherbeast Incorporated starring Robert Wagner, Darrell Hammond, Lori Singer, Dave Foley, Steve Burns and Judd Nelson. I also am planning to do a commercial for an International insurance company. I have also done some smaller roles as being in a movie called Life Room directed by Eric Ray and finally got up the confidence to do a stand up comedy routine at a local comedy club. I don't know what kind of special magic explore talent brings to those who decide to pursue their dreams but I do know now that your never too old and explore talent is just what you need to get the ball rolling.
