Miners Foundry and Holt Ballet Conservatory (HBC) will present “Clara and The Nutcracker” on December 12 and 13 at 7:00pm and a 1:00pm matinee on December 14.

Enjoy a delightful performance of holiday cheer and tradition in historical Nevada City with a beautiful cast of dancers, colorful costumes, magical sets, and the wonderful music of the holidays.  The Miners Foundry offers time-honored hospitality and HBC dancers bring vibrant energy and faithful dedication to the art of ballet and this classical favorite.


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.
