Our Young Dancers Hard at Work
November 29, 2018
Young dancers in rehearsal

Every year, Les Grands Ballets offers an unforgettable experience to more than 100 children: the chance to live the magic of The Nutcracker on stage. Open auditions are held in the fall for the roles of the Children at the Party, Rats, Mice, Reindeer, Angels, Orientals and Matriochkas, and of course, young Clara and Fritz. After weeks of dedicated preparation, these roles will all be brought to life by the young dancers who have joined the ranks of Les Grands Ballets for the festive season.

See our young artists in rehearsal under the tutoring of André Laprise, appointed children's rehearsal master, as they inspire us with their passion and their excitement.

Hard at work since September, these young talents will be ready to steal the show and amaze you at the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier of the Place des Arts in December!

See the final result of all this hard work by buying your tickets to the show or see more details on the production.
