Hold onto your hats, Nutcracker season is upon us! While we all love the family classic, there are other things Cleveland has to offer these next few months, including class opportunities, auditions,  and other performances. I recommend taking a look at the goings-on below, and taking a note of Nutcrackers and other events alike!




The Movement Project, Gund Studio at The Idea Center at Playhouse Square, December 16


TMP is looking for company members and performance apprentices! These are paid positions, so you definitely want to come out for this FREE and OPEN audition.


The audition will follow TMP’s Winter Intensive (details for this listed under ‘classes’ in this blog), and is a great finish to a few days of solid training. If you are not attending the intensive, reserve your audition spot by emailing your full name and phone number to Rebecca Leuszler, co-artistic director at rebecca@themovementproject.org. For more details, take a look at the website here.
