Click here if you would like to audition for our Nutracker Production
Every season we offer to NMYB's students as well as any dancer who wishes to participate, the opportunity to audition for and perform in our production of The Nutcracker. Dancers ages 5 get to experience the whole process and excitement of pinning a number onto their leotard and entering the studio as if they were professional dancers auditioning for a role. Nutcracker choreography is taught outside of regular class time during the fall months, culminating in a December performance. The performances are accompanied by a live orchestra, giving our dancers the best possible stage experience. Our youngest dancers get the honor of being cast in all the roles as they grow as dancers. The Nutcracker memories created and shared over the years will live in the hearts of our dancers and their families for a lifetime.
END OF THE YEAR STUDENT DANCE RECITAL
To celebrate the culmination of our year and to showcase the technical and artistic accomplishments of our dancers, we present our annual end of the year student dance recital. We envision the customary 'recital' in a unique way. Instead of presenting each class separately, we take the final 12-16 weeks of classes to create either an original dance narrative or an adaptation of a classical or romantic ballet. This is a wonderful learning opportunity for our younger dancers and a great way to teach leadership for our older dancers.
