The Nutcracker Experience

A Community Outreach Program, Transforming Lives Through Dance  

At Dual Star Academy of Dance, we believe performing is vital to a dancer’s education. The Nutcracker Experience introduces students and parents to narrative ballet, foster a better understanding of ballet as well as bring the magic of the Nutcracker to audiences who may not have the opportunity to see a live production this holiday season. Students have multiple opportunities to perform in the community and at the studio during the holiday season all while promoting confidence, a healthy lifestyle, and creativity.
