2018 Nutcracker

General Information

It’s a “Nutcracker Year!”

We are very excited!  The Nutcracker works a bit differently than the ‘recital’.  In the recital, every class has their own dance.  Nutcracker is a story ballet w/ defined parts.  While every class does not have their own different dance, every student has the opportunity to participate in the performance!
 

We will be posting which show your dancer will be in!  And again, due to the nature of the show, we cannot guarantee that all siblings will be together, etc.  If your dancer is in more than one show (or siblings are in different shows), we suggest watching one, and helping backstage with the other.  All backstage helpers drop the dancers off at the stage door – and then may go watch them from the audience.  Angels, Snowflakes, Plum Dancers may be able to dance w/ a different class. 


Performances will be held at Dowd Fine Arts, SUNY Cortland. To accommodate all the classes in the Dowd theatre, we will have 4 shows: Sat Dec 8 @ 1pm, Sat Dec 8 @ 6pm, Sun Dec 9 @ 12noon, Sun Dec 9 @ 4pm

Nutcracker Tickets

PRICES 

Adult: $19

Student/Child: $12.

Tickets go on sale at www.tututix.com/tickets/ on Nov 10 @ 8am.

Nutcracker Costumes

Unlike costumes for the Spring recital (which is included in your tuition fee) - costumes for Nutcracker belong to us. You do not have to buy a costume! There will be a $10. per costume rental/cleaning fee. Each dancer is required to buy a leotard that is used w/ the costumes. (see chart below)  You will keep the leotard for future use! We will be ordering the leotards soon.  (approx. cost: $15-$20.) If you already have a leotard from a previous show/sibling … LET US KNOW BY WED, OCT 17.


SHOES/TIGHTS

Dancers participating in the Nutcracker will also need:

GIRLS: pink tights, pink ballet shoes

BOYS: black jazz pants or male black tights, black ballet shoes or black jazz shoes.

*BEFORE you buy extra shoes… be sure to check our ‘hand me down’ box!
