About Holt Ballet Conservatory & our annual production of "Clara & the Nutcracker"
Holt Ballet Conservatory’s annual classical ballet production of “Clara & the Nutcracker” will be performed December 8, 9, and 10, 2016 at the historic Miners Foundry Cultural Center. This delightful tradition features a beautiful cast of dancers, colorful and elegant costumes, magical sets, and wonderful music of the holidays.
“Clara and The Nutcracker” is a delightful version of the classic holiday tale “The Nutcracker Suite” by E.T.A. Hoffmann, featuring choreography by Royal Ballet’s famous choreographer Sir Peter Wright. The cast runs the gamut, from youngsters making their stage debut as dancers to advanced accomplished dancers performing en pointe, and all levels in between. Holt Ballet Conservatory’s production tells the tale of Clara, whose Christmas present of a toy nutcracker solider inspires a magical dream for Clara, and an opportunity for classically trained ballet dancers to showcase and share their carefully crafted talent. Children will be enchanted and adults will be inspired by this performance to remember!
