The production routinely holds open calls to fill its "Ballet Girl" roles for productions across the US and London. Billy Elliot seeks a variety of shapes and sizes (tiny, chubby, lanky, quirky, etc) with expressive character and lots of personality - not your traditional ballerina - to fill the roles.
Here's a look at the open call:
