THE NUTCRACKER SPIRIT 

This program will focus on keeping the “spirit " of the Nutcracker alive through weekly classes where students can learn and enjoy the Nutcracker choreography, music, and story with their friends.

Weekly Classes

Saturdays, September - December

Each class of dancers will have the opportunity to learn Nutcracker variations from the Midwest Performing Arts Nutcracker Ballet. 

Informal Performance

Saturday, December 5, 2020

Each class will have the opportunity to perform what they have learned within an informal performance setting.

The Nutcracker Spirit Includes:

  • 10 Weeks of Nutcracker instructional classes and informal performance.

  • Each class of dancers will have the opportunity to work with the MPA Nutcracker Choreographers/Instructors to learn two or three Nutcracker variations (depending on age and level) from the Midwest Performing Arts Nutcracker Ballet.

  • On week 10, each class will have the opportunity to perform such variations. This informal performance could take place, but is not limited to one of the following scenarios:

    • If this performance takes place at a theater, an additional fee will be charged and a minimum ticket purchase will be required.

    • If this performance takes place as an in-studio showcase performance and live streaming is available, an additional fee for the live stream will be charged.

    • If this performance takes place as an in-studio showcase performance and live streaming is not available and/or an audience can be present, there will be a patron ticket fee per attendee.

    • If an scenario that includes an audience of any sort is not available, a video of the performance will be taken and an additional video charge will be required.

    • We are still working out the logistics of whether or not costuming would be involved in this showcase. If costuming is involved, an extra costuming fee would be applied per costume the student uses.

  • If you are not able to attend the Nutcracker Prep Classes, you will need to schedule a private audition for your “Nutcracker Spirit” class placement. The cost of a private placement class is $35.00.
