The Nutcracker Ballet by Maria Verdeja Dancers
Tschaikovsky’s iconic music transports you to a world of wonder where mischievous mice are foiled by toy soldiers come to life, and a blizzard of ballerinas reveals the enchanting Land of Sweets. This is the ballet that originated a beloved American holiday tradition. The Maria Verdeja School of the Arts was founded in 1987. Throughout the years, Maria and her staff of over 40 instructors and choreographers have mentored more than 10,000 students, many of whom have gone onto professional careers in dance companies and the Broadway stage.
