Nutcracker Cast & Crew Info

After a year without our annual Nutcracker Ballet, our goal is to create a more inclusive Nutcracker production! Auditions were held for the level 4 and higher dancers for specialty and corps roles. Primary Level through Level 3 dancers will learn Nutcracker choreography in their ballet classes. Tap Dance Soldiers will learn choreography in the Tuesday Intermediate Tap class.  Dancers who learn choreography and wish to be part of the Nutcracker magic may register online in September!

Cast members will find all important Cast & Crew information uploaded in their online dance accounts and on our Nutcracker Cast & Crew site that is shared with our DC Families.
