The Nutcracker tells the tale of toys that come to life on Christmas Eve set to the iconic music composed by Peter Tchaikovsky. The recognizable story and music excite all of the participating dancers. The range of characters presented within the story allows for a wide age range to audition and perform. Some of the youngest dancers are in 2nd grade while the oldest are in their last years of high school. Most noteworthy, students love the opportunity to work and learn together in this thrilling environment outside of class.
The dancers’ cast will perform with Nutcracker Magical Christmas ballet company. It is most noteworthy that working with this company gives dancers a unique opportunity to perform advanced choreography. Through this exposure to seasoned professionals, dancers learn how to perform with joy and technical precision outside the traditional dance studio. For many Gotta Dance students, as a result, this is the first time they have had the opportunity to perform in a full-length ballet. This often inspires a lifelong passion for dance while building confidence and ballet technique. NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet has continuously recognized the skill and precision of Gotta Dance students and they are featured in the promotional DVD of the show. This video circulates around the country and is shown wherever the NUTCRACKER! Magical Christmas Ballet performs.
The Nutcracker Sweets Traveling Troupe is a community-based performance group that envelops young dancers in a world of culture, tradition, and holiday magic. As a team, we will create cherished moments and develop discipline. The dancers’ cast will perform with the Axelrod Contemporary Ballet company. This season we will be performing Nutcracker Rocks at the Axelrod Performing Arts Center in Deal Park, NJ on Sunday, December 11th. A magical reimagining of a family holiday classic, Nutcracker Rocks is choreographed by Mr. Gabriel Chajnik! The Nutcracker Rocks is a mixture of high-power music and dance that will transport you to a land of brave toy soldiers and sweet sugar plum fairies.
