Enter the dream world of The Nutcracker Ballet! Dancing snowflakes, skipping gumdrops, and waltzing flowers are all a part of this charmed production.

Staged by the Laurie Tinkler School of Dance, this adapted version of the seasonal classic is sure to enchant you.

The fantasy of young Clara begins on Christmas Eve when Godfather Drosselmeyer presents her with the gift of a wonderful Nutcracker.

In her dreams that night she experiences a terrific battle between the Nutcracker Prince and the Rat King.

Later, she is whisked away on a journey to the Land of Snow where she is greeted by twirling snowflakes.

In the Land of Sweets, Clara is presented with dancing treats from Arabia, Spain and Russia.
