Ballet audtions for Tucson Christmas show

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Auditions were held Sunday in Tucson for a popular Christmas play.

Breakout Studios on Fourth Avenue is searching for ballet dancers for this year's great russian nutcracker show at the fox theater.

Sunday's audition was for dancers up to 16-years-old.

Instructors say it's a great opportunity for kids to work alongside professional dancers and learn more about the performance art.

"That's been my passion, everybody has their own, some people it's jazz some people it's modern some people it's art, for us we really love to tell a story through dance," said Christy Smith from Breakout Studios.

Dancers interested in being a part of the show should contact Breakout Studios.
