BalletNova is a community-oriented dance company committed to presenting quality productions and choreography that people can understand, respect, enjoy, and afford.
Every December, BalletNova presents The Nutcracker. First presented in 2004, this full-length ballet production has become a holiday tradition. With a cast of 170 dancers and a dedicated volunteer cadre of 130, the Nutcracker is a magical experience that puts the whole community in the holiday spirit.

BalletNova also presents a Spring Repertory Performance each year. This professional production features an eclectic mix of classical and contemporary choreography from local dance artists. For more information on our upcoming performances, click here.
The Petite Performances are special in-studio performance programs designed for pre-schoolers. The Nutcracker and Spring Repertory Performance are both offered as Petite Peformances.
