Storytime Ballet: The Nutcracker

Sugar plums, waltzing flowers and a giant Christmas tree! Experience the world’s most beloved ballet in a very special production of The Nutcracker created just for kids! 

This is a wonderful first dance experience for children. Kids are completely immersed in the story and they help make the magic happen on stage. 

Running for under an hour, Storytime Ballet is an interactive and educational production that encourages children to learn and explore their love of dance.
