New Orleans Nutcracker

New Orleans' first locally infused Nutcracker!
A classic ballet told with a local twist, danced by local dancers, featuring local music. It's exciting, a bit spooky, super funky, a lot lively, and a little mysterious just like our beloved city, New Orleans!

Our first New Olreans Nutcracker was produced in 2011 and we have continued to produce the New Olreans Nutcracker every since! We had an outdoor Nutcraacker with a split cast in 2020 where all the dancers and audience members wore masks. With all the let down in 2020, we were not going to let not having our Nutcracker be another for our sweet students!

We will be returning to a more "normal" Nutcracket this year. Offering all dance students ages 5+ the opportunity to particpate! There is no particpation fee. The only expenses will be costumes, $25 - $50 for each class. We do our best to keep the costume cost as low as possible and reuse costumes and use one costume for multiple dances whenever possible. Audience members will also need tickets to the show. These range in price from $20 - $30 depending on the venue and audience size. 

Rehearsals take place during regularly scheduled classes with exception of a couple of full cast rehearsals and the tech and dress rehearsal. Our show is always in December. The exact date and location will be announced by October at the lates. 

Our students love participating in the Nutcracker and their friends and families enjoy attending each year. We will continue to produce this family favorite if at all possible!

Registered students will receive information regarding The New Orleans Nutcracker by October 2022!
