August 24, 2019!

The Children's Ballet of San Antonio invites Dancers, Gymnasts, Actors and Performing Artists ages 3 to 19 to audition for The Children’s Nutcracker! CBSA’s The Children’s Nutcracker is a professional level production that will feature talented young artists from around the San Antonio area. All artists will be cast in roles that showcase and highlight their individual talents and strengths. Artists will also have the opportunity to work with Master Ballet Teachers along with fantastic local choreographers!

Why should your dancer join CBSA?

CBSA productions feature a cast entirely made up of children ages 3 to 19! Therefore we are able to offer each dancer unparalleled opportunities to perform and to train as they work with choreographers and Master Ballet Teachers in rehearsal. Each dancer receives individual attention from our rehearsal directors and has the opportunity to dance in highlighted and lead roles!
