Aspiring dancers in the UAE have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform with the professionals from American Ballet Theatre. An open call has been put out looking for extras to showcase their skills in a performance of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet at Emirates Palace on Friday and Saturday April 3 and 4 as part of Abu Dhabi Festival.
Romeo & Juliet tells the classic tale of two young star-crossed lovers from two feuding families.
It’s been adapted numerous times in the past, including the 1996 film which stars Leonardo DiCaprio.
The casting call is open to people who don’t necessarily have prior dance experience.
The theatre company is looking for females aged 14 to 60 and males aged 15 to 65.
Interested applicants should register online before Saturday, February 15.
