A magical holiday tradition for our students, families, and audience.
A great first experience for our students to fall in love with the stage in this classical story ballet.
The Nutcracker Spirit
Keeping the spirit of The Nutcracker alive through weekly variations classes and transformed performance opportunities
Nutcracker Prep Classes
September 8 - 11, 2020
Nutcracker Prep Classes will serve as placement classes for "The Nutcracker Spirit" class groupings. More information on our Summer Sessions Page.
Dancers unable to attend Nutcracker Prep Classes will need to schedule a 30-minute private placement class for "The Nutcracker Spirit" placement. Please note that tuition for a 30-minute private placement class is $50.
Each class of dancers will have the opportunity to learn Nutcracker variations from the ABAA Nutcracker Ballet.
|9/26, 10/3, 10/10, 10/24||Class/Rehearsal|
|10/17, 10/31||NO CLASS/REHEARSAL: Fall Break & Halloween|

|1 hour class||45 minute class||30 minute class|
If you are in more than one role, dancer fee will equal total number of rehearsal hours. EXAMPLE: Role 1 is an hour class. Role 2 is a 45 minute class. Total fee: $347.
All fees are due upon acceptance and there will be no refunds.
In Week 9, each class will have to opportunity to perform their variations. Performances will take shape according to public health guidance, and may be presented:
- At a theatre (this will incur an additional fee, and a minimum ticket purchase will be required)
- As an in-studio showcase performance, without a live stream (if an audience can be present, there will be a patron ticket fee per attendee)
- As an in-studio showcase performance, with a live stream component (if live streaming is available, an admission fee will be charged for the virtual performance)
- If including a live audience of any sort is not feasible, a video of the performance will be taken and an additional video charge will be added
We are still evaluating the role of costuming in these performances. If costuming is feasible, an extra costuming fee would be applied to each student per costume used
