Nutcracker, The Ballet - Watch Online!

Nutcracker, The Ballet is available to watch online here for the first time ever. The decision to go virtual became clear when it was realized that due to COVID-19 the performance could not be held live for safety concerns.

This year, students had the exciting opportunity to bring a traditional holiday classic to our community virtually, giving all those involved the invaluable experience of artists adapting to their environment and fulfilling the tradition of “the show must go on”. The ballet has been produced by the local Emmy award-winning production company, The Media Center, featuring this year’s student dancers. There are special features including behind-the-scenes interviews addressing the challenges of this rigorous process and the added layer of COVID-19 precautions.
