Nutcracker 2020

Name
Days
Location
Nutcracker Production Interest
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we do not anticipate the ability to do a "live" production this fall/winter. We would like to still proceed with auditions, casting the production and "filming" it as a video to be live-streamed, shown as a film in mid-December with small live viewing audience(s) and potentially for purchase on DVD.

The tentative plans would be to audition dancers age 6-18, both in-person and with a video option, who are interested in participating in late August. We would carefully plan out a detailed rehearsal schedule for those who are cast to minimize the number and length of rehearsals for the dancers in-studio. We would plan to film "on-location" each scene over the span of 4-6 week-ends throughout different locations and businesses within Morgantown. Each scene would only film 1 day and if possible, we would do our best to coordinate dancers who may be cast in multiple parts to film all of their scenes/dances on the same day.

Many plans are still undetermined as the coordination will depend on how many dancers would be interested in participating. The goal would be to keep the production fees at a minimum and also coordinate as stated above to minimize rehearsal and filming time as much as possible.

If you are interested, please register so that we may record your interest. We will use the list of responses for further communication as more plans materialize. Please be assured that responding to this "interest" does not obligate you to audition or participate if we move forward. This is simply a method to gauge interest.

Grown-Up & Me
This class is designed as an introduction to movement for little ones ages 2-3 years old that are already potty trained. This class is to be taken with the accompaniment of an adult. There is not a strict uniform code for this class, but something comfortable so that the child and adult can move freely. The class size must be limited this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions and to allow social distancing since each child will equal 2 class attendees.
