Nutcracker/Holiday Showcase


We are very excited about our Holiday Showcase benefit show featuring the Westside Ballet Company, and Westside Troupe dancers performing excerpts from The Nutcracker Suite.  Our Petite and Mini Express classes are also invited to take part!

All students in the Petite & Mini Express classes will learn the Nutcracker choreography in class, but participation in the show is strictly optional.  (Note that this is an additional performance opportunity for the students, and each class will be starting their own class recital routines in January for the June recital.)


Students need to attend three rehearsals (outside of class time)

Show Time

There are two shows on Sunday December 9th, 2018 - times TBA.  Students may dance at one or both shows.  We will have chaperons for the dancers backstage for the entire show.  If there are seats available, the chaperons will accompany their students to the auditorium to watch the second half of the show.


Each participant will need to pay a participation fee of approximately $45. This fee includes costume usage, cleaning and extra rehearsals.


Ticket prices (TBA) will be available for sale on Friday November 2nd.
