Clara and The Nutcracker” is a delightful version of the classic holiday tale “The Nutcracker Suite” by E.T.A. Hoffmann.  The cast runs the gamut from youngsters making their stage debut 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 filled with battling mice, dancing sugar canes, and visits from ambassadors from afar. These variations provide 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!

Holt Ballet Conservatory opened in 2011 and specializes in traditional classical ballet training for students aged 3 and up.
