Bring your students to Syracuse City Ballet's annual presentation of A Children's Nutcracker on December 5th & 6th, 2019 at 10:00am This performance is a specially designed one-hour production for school-age children. This is a great opportunity to introduce your students to the ballet with a beloved holiday tale. We invite school districts, classrooms, home school groups, or private organizations to attend. With nearly 3,000 students at last year's performances, "A Children's Nutcracker" proves to be one of the company's most cherished and memorable events.

BRING THE BALLET EXPERIENCE TO YOUR SCHOOL OR GROUP:
Our Ballet Mistress and a few selected Corps de Ballet members will visit your school and transform the space of your choice into a theater. Students will have the opportunity to be completely immersed into The Nutcracker. Students will be introduced to many exciting aspects of a ballet performance, including: basic dance technique, actual choreography directly from the show, the importance of the musical score, the plot, the characters, and production elements like sets, props, and costumes.
