The Wahzhazhe Ballet will hold auditions April 6

The Wahzhazhe Ballet will hold auditions April 6 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Dance Maker Academy.

Auditions will be held at Dance Maker Academy at 400 Palmer Avenue in Pawhuska on April 6 for this year’s children’s cast of Wahzhazhe Ballet. The auditions will be for children ages 6-20. Nine Boys and nine girls will be chosen for the cast. Selections will partially be done by height because of costuming.

Dancers must be ages 6 to 20 years old to audition. Audition times are as follows:

10:00-10:45 Children up to 48”

10:45-11:15 Children 48”-60”

The performance will be June 15 in Chase County, Kansas. Symphony in the Flint Hills is a non-profit dedicated to preserving the Tallgrass Prairie from Kansas to Oklahoma. The event will help raise money for their mission and give us an opportunity to tell our Osage story to approximately 7,000 audience members. You can visit their site at www.symphonyintheflinthills.org.

Rehearsals will be May 28-31 and June 3-5 at Dancer Maker Academy in Pawhuska.
