“Untitled Ballet Project”
SEEKING REAL BALLET DANCERS
FOR THE LEADS IN A NEW DRAMATIC SCRIPTED SERIES
Episodic dramatic series that centers on a young female ballet dancer with a troubled past who joins a ballet company in New York. This dark and gritty project will explore the dysfunctional underbelly of the ballet world.
CLAIRE: Female, Caucasian, 21 years old. Series lead. Must dance at a company ballerina level. Claire is beautiful, delicate, soulful and serious. Prototype: Polina Semionova. For reference: click here. Nudity and sexuality required.
MIA: Female, any ethnicity, 22 years old. Series regular. Must dance at a company ballerina level. Mia is cute, feisty and the polar opposite of Claire. She’s comfortably brassy -- no filter -- and says whatever is on her mind. She’s an NYC native who loves to talk and has a dry, charming and honest sense of humor. Nudity and sexuality required.
DAPHNE: Female, any ethnicity, 24 years old. Series regular. Must dance at a company ballerina level. Daphne is gorgeous, smart, confident, relaxed and possesses a wry sense of humor. Daphne is worldly and owns her power as a woman -- she is not someone who can be taken advantage of. Nudity and sexuality required.
KIIRA: Female, any ethnicity, (open to accents) 31 years old. Series regular. Must dance at a company ballerina level. Kiira is the prima ballerina of the company. She is nervous on the inside and terrified of “aging out” as a ballerina but she maintains an ice princess demeanor. She’s used to being the favorite and she’s used to being the star. Nudity and sexuality required.
ROSS: Male, any ethnicity, (open to accents) 26 years old. Series regular. Must dance at a company level. Ross is a Principal dancer in the company and confident as hell. He’s used to getting everything he wants and he’s cocky and knows how to turn on the charm. Nudity and sexuality required.
TREY: Male, any ethnicity (open to accents), 25 years old. Series regular. Must dance at a company level. Trey is a soloist in the company. He’s openly gay and a lot of fun. He doesn’t pull any punches and loves to gossip. Nudity and sexuality required.
