Each year California Contemporary Ballet opens auditions to the public for chorus roles and some principal roles. All ages from the community are invited to participate in this holiday production. Needed for chorus and gymnast roles are kids with varying levels of dance experience, from beginners to advanced, and professional dancers. Adults are also needed for minor dance and acting roles.
Auditions will be held at the California DanceArts studio, located at 4490 Cornishon Avenue, La Canada, CA 91011. On Friday, September 17 auditions will be at 7:00pm for young chorus, under 11 years. On Saturday, September 18 there will be auditions for Gymnasts (open to all ages) at 1:00pm. At 3:00pm will be for older chorus, 11 years and up, and at 6:00pm auditions for adult acting roles.
Dancers of the California Contemporary Ballet will be featured in solo and principal roles. However, CCB is looking for new members and additional dancers for this production. A photo and resume should be sent to 4490 Cornishon Ave, La Canada 91011 or faxed to 501-641-7117.
All dancers at all auditions should bring a photo, resume, and a $5 audition fee, and be in dance attire and ballet or pointe shoes. Please arrive early to sign in. Casting is at the sole descretion of the CCB auditioning panel. While the company tries to cast everyone, there is no guarantee or obligation to cast every auditioning dancer.
