Every year the studio performs the magical story of E.T.A. Hoffman’s The Nutcracker. Dancers ages 7 and up are invited to perform with us and take part in this feature-length Ballet. Students who wish to participate in the Nutcracker must take ballet during the summer session. Please know that your attendance during the summer classes will be taken into consideration at the time of the audition, especially our upper-level classes.
Congratulations to the 2020 Cast of The Nutcracker. Please note that this year's cast list looks different than in year's past in that it incorporates all students in each number and role. At the first rehearsal, you will be separated into groups to determine which "show" you will be placed in. Because this year's show is filmed, there are only two Act 1 casts and three Act 2 casts.
Rehearsals begin Friday, September 18th. Please be sure to check the rehearsal schedule regularly for changes and updates. We look forward to this year's new production of The Nutcracker.
2020 Tentative Dates
We are in the process of finalizing the dates and site for recording the show. We are actively exploring several good options.
November 27, 28, 29, 30th is our “Plan A” so that the show will be prepared and ready for distribution before the holidays. We are awaiting final confirmation of site availability.
December 27, 28, 29, 30th is our “Plan B” with an available site secured for those dates.
We ask that those who choose to participate in the performance keep these dates available at this time. If there are new restrictions before November that prevent us from performing on those November dates, we will postpone and use the December dates.
All dancers participating in the Nutcracker will receive a link to the show's premiere included in their registration fee. Please call the office for more information.
