Ballet Chesapeake: The Nutcracker

Friday, December 17, 2021


Ballet Chesapeake developed its Nutcracker Outreach in 2001 to provide children in our community with a rare glimpse into the world of professional art.

This special program serves to expose the very young to the wonder and enchantment of a ballet performance while teaching basic theater etiquette and table manners.  

The performances have been specially designed for preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade audiences.  Children will delight in the magic onstage as the narrated ballet comes to life before their eyes!  

Ballet Presentation

Ballet Chesapeake will perform an abridged version of their complete professional staging of The Nutcracker ballet with intricate costumes and sets along with Tchaikovsky’s timeless score.

This version is child-friendly and includes live narration of the Nutcracker story to accompany dancers. 

This special program serves to expose the very young to the wonder and enchantment of a ballet performance while teaching basic theater etiquette and table manners.  

Tea Party

Following the performance, the children are led to a decorated tea party area for a formal tea of punch and snacks.

The dancers – still in costume – serve the tea while the Nutcracker interacts with the children.

Each child will have the chance for a photo with their favorite character and will leave with memories to last a lifetime!
