Since 1986, Ballet Etudes has brightened the holiday season for thousands through its staging of the classic "The Nutcracker." The Board of Directors and artistic staff have endeavored to make our production unique, through major investments in sets, costumes, choreography, lighting, and guest artists. Accordingly, Ballet Etudes "The Nutcracker" has afforded young dancers the unique opportunity to perform in professional venues in front of large audiences.
Faced with the tragic reality of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors has had to make the painful decision to cancel "The Nutcracker" for 2020. Multiple factors were considered in coming to this conclusion. To perform "The Nutcracker" under the conditions dictated by theatre protocols and health considerations would do a disservice to our patrons, and, more importantly, our young dancers.
The Board is presently planning for a Winter Repertoire and Spring Production. We expect to come back strong in the 2021 holiday season with a performance of "The Nutcracker" that will live up to the high standards of Ballet Etudes.
