The Nutcracker

Based on a novel by 19th-century romantic fabulist E.T.A. Hoffman, The Nutcracker weaves a magical tale of holiday adventure around one of the most recognizable scores in the ballet repertoire. It begins when young Clara receives a nutcracker from her godfather, a wizardly toymaker named Drosselmeyer. Sneaking downstairs to see the toy after everyone else has gone to bed, she suddenly finds herself caught in the middle of a pitched battle between the toys and an army of mice. After saving the nutcracker with a well-thrown shoe to the Mouse King’s head, Clara and her now-living prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets to celebrate.

Throughout their adventures, Tchaikovsky’s dazzling inventiveness propels the dances of nimble flowers and regal fairy queens. The “Waltz of the Snowflakes” floats weightlessly above the angelic voices of a youth choir, whereas the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” tiptoes to the haunting, music-box chimes of a celesta. A medley of exotic national dances—including a Spanish bolero and Russian Trepak—add to the phantasmagoric celebration before the whole dream ends, as all dreams must.

The Florida Ballet

For more than three decades, The Florida Ballet's teachers—all certified by the American Ballet Theatre—have introduced students to the art of the leap, the pirouette, and the tutu. And those students have gone on to high places: Orlando Ballet, the Joffrey Ballet, and even The American Ballet Theatre. Founded by Laurie Picinich-Byrd and Michael F. Byrd., accomplished dancers who met during a rehearsal at the Metropolitan Opera House, the training and performance haven refines young dancers' technique with the American Ballet Theatre's 8-level training program. This curriculum not only focuses on the beauty of ballet, it also pays special attention to the health of dancers and the principles of child development.
