St. Louis (KSDK) - Students all over Missouri and several in Illinois auditioned for a chance to dance with the Moscow Ballet and Wednesday night 110 of them will take the stage at Peabody Opera House.
They've been rehearsing every Sunday for the last two months, but today, just a couple of hours before the big performance they rehearsed with the entire company for the first time.
Heidi Glaus was there when they took the stage. Click the video player above to see her interview.
