Giselle Auditions

Saturday December 1
1:00 - 2:30
Dancers Ages 12 – Adult

Audition will take the form of a ballet class
Dancers should bring pointe shoes if appropriate.

All rehearsals will take place on Saturdays, dancers are responsible to disclose all conflicts they may have with rehearsals or performances at the time of audition. Rehearsals will start Saturday December 29.  Dancers in specific soloist roles may be required to rehearse during the week but will be determined on a case by case basis.

Giselle, a full-length ballet in two acts, tells the heart-breaking story of an innocent young village girl who falls in love with Albrecht, the Duke of Silesia disguised as a peasant named Loys.  Act I closes with Giselle discovering his real identity and that he is betrothed to the Prince’s daughter.  Giselle, driven mad with grief, dies of a broken heart.  Act II unfolds as Albrecht comes grieving to her grave and is surrounded by Wilis, the spirits of young girls who were jilted before their wedding day and now seek revenge upon men by forcing them to dance to their deaths.  Giselle protects him from the avenging spirits, and through true love, saves his life.
