Amira will make its world debut at the Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts on June 15, 2018. Rehearsals are set to begin April 13.

Auditions will span three days this month: February 23 - February 25. Interested dancers will audition either on Friday or Saturday, as dictated by their class/es and level/s, and call-backs for select roles are scheduled to take place on Sunday.

Dancers currently enrolled in class/es at Hyde Park School of Dance are not required to sign up in advance for Amira auditions, but dancers must check in during their audition's scheduled check-in period, be ready to dance by the start time of their assigned audition time, and have their measurements taken by HPSD costuming staff during their assigned measurements time in order to be considered. Late arrivals will not be considered.
