| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 6 - 10 | Role Type: LeadingA young, dreamy, quiet, imaginative soul, drifting through her youth, floating above what others might see as an uncertain existence. Ballet experience preferred.
| Male | Any Ethnicity | Age: 30 - 45 | Role Type: LeadingA single father who wants to show his daughter the beauty of life despite the fact that it has often eluded him. Earnest, hopeful, deeply devoted to his daughter, but also well aware of the ways life can fall short of one's dreams.
| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 35 - 55 | Role Type: SupportingA once promising ballerina who never achieved her grand fantasy of becoming one of the greatest dancers of her age. Somehow, things never quite fell into place for her. She is now the proprietress of a not terribly well attended ballet academy for young girls. And yet she feels dance is the highest calling, is dedicated to her art, and still has within her all the drama, glamour, and self-invention of a true prima ballerina. Like an Edward Gorey character, or the Marchesa Casati, later in life. She has adopted a Russian accent which anyone but her young students can tell is false.
| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 40 - 60 | Role Type: SupportingA lifeless, cynical older woman, cultured, educated, once fashionable, now reduced to being a governess. She is above her calling, but tolerates her existence. She will do the bare minimum to care for her charge, upholding her dignity and perhaps hoping a little of it rubs off on the young girl.
| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 25 - 45 | Role Type: Featured BackgroundMother of a ballet student. Non-speaking role.
| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 6 - 10 Another student in Madame Dismailova's ballet academy. Non-speaking part.
| Female | Any Ethnicity | Age: 6 - 10 A shy, curious, vulnerable young girl from a wealthy family. She is cared for by a cold governess who has little love to give, and she rarely sees her cosmopolitan, sophisticated parents, except when she is trotted out in her finery for parties. An only child, she is looking for connection, but afraid it will vanish once she has found it.
