“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!
Holt Ballet Conservatory opened in 2011 and specializes in traditional classical ballet training for students age 3 to adult.
HBC offers outstanding classical ballet training by following a comprehensive syllabus endorsed by the Vaganova training method, the American Ballet Academy syllabus and the California State Framework for the arts.
