Our Nutcracker is a full-length production with professional sets, costumes and choreography by local dance professionals. We incorporate different dance styles as well as ballet with new choreography and new themes each year. We welcome any dancer who is currently taking classes to audition for this production. The experience of performing each year brings valuable lessons in dedication, scheduling, perseverance and hard work! As with all children’s productions, we require the help of parents to fulfill the many needed roles in bringing this show to a successful conclusion every year.
