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.
