Brandon Ballet performs Waltz of the Flowers from the The Nutcracker last year. The company performs two major, full-length ballets each season.

Brandon Ballet holds its annual audition for company dancers Saturday.

Under the artistic direction of Octavio Martin, the company offers classical ballet training and performs two major, full-length ballets each season, including The Nutcracker, and performances at annual galas and mixed repertory performances.

Audition times are 9:30 to 11 a.m., dancers not on pointe or pointe 1 (9 and older); 11:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., second-year pointe (10 and older); and 1 to 3 p.m., third-year pointe (11 and older).

Each audition will be followed by a parents' meeting, which will last about a half-hour. There will be a $25 nonrefundable audition fee.

Auditions for the professional company and Nutcracker extras will be held Aug. 24. For information, contact the administrative coordinator at dance@brandonballet.org or call (813) 684-4282.
