Cast Handbook: Company and Apprentice Requirements for Program


Only Company and Apprentice dancers (as designated on the casting notification email) will be given a time slot to have their pictures taken by Jennifer Schultz Photography for the Nutcracker program and their Nutcracker buttons at Jennifer Shultz Photography, 5930 S 58th St Suite O, Lincoln, NE 68516. These photos will be scheduled through an online form sent out to Company and Apprentice dancers. Please consider your availability on October 28th from 11:00-2:00 before selecting your photo time.


For Company individual pictures, female dancers must wear any-style black leotard. Dancers will wear their hair in a bun, style of your choice.  For Company and Apprentice group pictures, all dancers are to wear any-style black leotard, pink tights and pointe shoes.  Bring a white practice tutu, if you have one. Please do not wear jewelry and have your nails presentable. Male dancers should wear white or black t-shirts, black tights, white socks and white ballet shoes.

Proof selection: The Artistic Director will select the Company dancers’ pictures to be used in the Nutcracker program.  Pictures will also be available for purchase.


The Lincoln Midwest Ballet Company will be sending a link to submit your biography for the programs. These bios will be created using your grade in school, school you attend, previous roles with LMBC, along with sharing some interesting facts about you. Biographies must be submitted by October 28th.
