The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.” Moscow Ballet “Dance with Us” Audition Director Carolina Siscanu will work one-on-one with the selected student dancers October 17 to 20 refining and polishing their work.
