Each year, Connecticut Dance School holds six performances of The Nutcracker, two full-length performances, as well as four shortened performances for area school children, including one that is sensory friendly (view our Sensory Friendly Nutcracker page for more information on this performance).
All of the roles are filled by our own students, with the exception of the Cavalier, performed by a guest artist.
Below are photos from the 2019 performance.
"Participating in the Nutcracker was a wonderful experience, it was the first time I had ever been on stage or part of a big production."
– Julia Ortiz, former student now with American Ballet Theater, JKO School
