FRIDAY, Dec. 1st, Noon


An annual tradition for homeschoolers - dress in your best, invite grandparents and join 100 homeschool friends for this fun and cultural outing.

The Sierra Nevada Ballet, northern Nevada's professional ballet company, will present the popular “PEANUTCRACKER – The Story in a Nut Shell” once again.

AGE RECOMMENDATION: The whole family!

COST: $6.50 per person (parents must also pay)

$5.50 per person for NNHS Donors*

Includes small convenience fee

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. Many  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 :-)
