Ballet Chelsea Holds Auditions for 2017-2018 Season

Ballet Chelsea puts on "Giselle" performance this March.

Ballet Chelsea will hold auditions on August 20 and 27 for its 2017-2018 season. Dancers are invited to audition for company member (Aug. 20) and guest (Aug. 27) positions in Ballet Chelsea’s performance company. Registration will begin at noon for both audition dates.

Ballet Chelsea offers two major performance opportunities each year. The Nutcracker is performed in early December, and a production selected from a diverse repertory of classic ballets and original works is performed in the spring.

This year, in celebration of Ballet Chelsea’s 20th Anniversary, The Nutcracker will feature live orchestral accompaniment by the Jackson Symphony Orchestra. In March 2018, Ballet Chelsea will present Coppélia, a comic ballet based on a tale by E.T.A Hoffman who also authored The Nutcracker (The Nutcracker and The Mouse King).

This year, Artistic Director Wendi DuBois was awarded the Michigan Youth Arts Touchstone Award for 2017 Arts Educator of the Year in dance, and Ballet Chelsea was voted Best Dance Company in Washtenaw County by Current Magazine.
