See the magic unfold in this family performance of the classic holiday story of The Nutcracker. A traditional holiday party and a very typical sibling rivalry set the stage for an entertaining fantasy journey to the Land of Sweets. With a cast of 70 children and teens, Footworks Youth Ballet’s 13th annual production of The Nutcracker will dazzle audiences with its colorful costumes, professional sets and live orchestra and choir. In keeping with the mission of Footworks, principal roles are danced by student dancers whenever possible, giving young artists opportunities not found elsewhere.
Join Footworks Youth Ballet for their Family Educational Hour one hour prior to each show to learn about the production, costumes, ballet history and music. To provide more family-friendly options to attend the performances, Footworks Youth Ballet offers matinees on both regular performance days (December 10th and 11th at 2 p.m.).
Footworks Youth Ballet is a nonprofit ballet company whose purpose is to provide educational opportunities to young people through the art of ballet.
