Auditions for Peter Pan in the Park

Updated June 20, 2021:

Kittiwake has had a strong response to the call for auditions. All time slots for pre-registration are full.  If you choose to complete the pre-registration form, it will be for a waitlist position only and we will notify you only if a space becomes available.

 

 

On October 1, 2021, Kittiwake will premiere a new story ballet, Peter Pan in the Park, with original choreography by Martin Vallée.

We require a number of community dancers for the production and therefore are holding auditions on June 27 for interested dancers ages 9 and up. Due to public health restrictions and to respect physical distancing, dancers will audition in small groups.

 

With a limited number of time slots, we will conduct pre-registration and make audition times available on a first-come, first-serve basis, by age group. Pre-registration is open until midnight on June 24 NST. On June 25, Kittiwake will email audition times to those who are selected. Those selected for an audition will be emailed their assigned time and are required to etransfer the $10 audition fee before June 27.
