Register Now

Application Deadline: 5:00pm, 26 May 2021 (Wednesday).

This summer, Hong Kong Ballet (HKB) will present a thrilling story ballet ALICE (in wonderland) choreographed by HKB’s Artistic Director Septime Webre. The production will be performed at Hong Kong Cultural Centre’s Grand Theatre on 13-15 August.

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Webre’s ALICE (in wonderland) is full of energy, excitement and innovation. Audiences will join young Alice in her whimsical adventures when she accidentally falls down a rabbit hole into an enchanted, zany world. Infused with unexpected humour, this production showcases a dizzying array of dances that merge traditional ballet with contemporary ballroom, modern and even a dash of hip-hop and aerial acrobatics!

We are inviting young ballet dancers to audition for the roles of Little Doors, Baby Flamingos, Hedgehogs, Cute Piglets, Daisies, Sandwich Cards and Small Male Cards in ALICE (in wonderland). Successful applicants will have the rare opportunity to share the stage alongside HKB dancers!

Auditions will be held on 30 May 2021 at Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
