Manhattan Youth Ballet Announces
Auditions for The Knickerbocker Suite
Sunday, September 25, 2011 beginning at 9am
Manhattan Youth Ballet announces auditions for the company's production of The Knickerbocker Suite. The auditions will take place on Sunday, September 25 from 9:30-10am for dancers aged 8-10 years, 10:15-11:15am for 11-13 years, and 11:15-12:45 for dancers 14 and older. Registration will begin at 9am.

The Knickerbocker Suite will be performed from December 16-18 at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center. The Knickerbocker Suite features New York City landmarks, such as The Statue of Liberty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY sports teams, weaved into the time-honored holiday tale of The Nutcracker. Classic Nutcracker scenes like "The Land of the Snow" will be transformed to a snowy frenzy of shoppers dancing in and out of stores like Macy's and Bloomingdale's for last minute gifts, while "The Land of Sweets" will be accompanied by street vendors and roasted chestnuts. Perhaps one of the more well-known scenes, "Mother Ginger and her Polichinelles," will be played by the Statue of Liberty and dancing immigrants who just arrived from Ellis Island. This year's production will feature new choreography and new scenic design.
