Young dancers vie to share stage with pros

A group of Brooklyn's young ballerinas had the chance to audition for the Moscow Ballet Monday.



Auditions for "The Nutcracker" were open to dancers between 6 and 16 years old at the Brighton Ballet Theater.



About 30 positions are open for the youths to take the stage with professional dancers at Kings Theater in Brooklyn.



The Brighton Ballet Theater plans to hold more auditions for other performances coming up later this year.
