DESCRIPTION: Based on Lev Ivanov‘s original ballet “The Nutcracker”, PEANUTCRACKER is a shorter, 45-minute narrated version of the holiday classic that is designed for families with younger children (K-6th) to introduce them to the wonderful world of ballet. Choreographed and written by Rosine Bena, Artistic Director of the Sierra Nevada Ballet, this is a wonderful, traditional holiday show.

Each year’s performances feature professionals from out-of-state, and the Sierra Nevada Ballet professional company. Over 50 local children will perform live on stage for this ‘must-not-miss’ holiday event.

Start a holiday tradition with your young children by attending this performance with about a hundred other homeschoolers :-)
