Snowflakes, Sword Fights, Dancing Dolls and much, much more… Join the the dancers from The Dance Academy of Stuart to share the joy of Clara’s magical journey to the Kingdom of Sweets this holiday season! Our Nutcracker Ballet follows the time worn tradition of the ballet based on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s book The Nutcracker. Our dancers delight the audiences with magical dolls, falling snowflakes, a soldier cannon shooting cheese at mice, and Clara’s bed that floats across the stage. The Nutcracker ballet is a positively joyous treat for ballet lovers of all ages. Rejoice in the return of this time-honored tradition!
The Dance Academy of Stuart has performed this holiday classic, The Nutcracker for over twenty years. We are thrilled to be back on the stage and at the Lyric theatre to celebrate the return of this festive ballet!
