Nutcracker Petites

The perfect “first ballet” experience created specifically for children ages 5 and under.

At just 45 minutes, our Pre-school Petite Performance features excerpts that will enchant your child and capture their imagination. Performed at the BalletNova studios in our Studio F performance space, the children also get to meet and greet the dancers after the show. Please join us for these live events listed on the dates below.


There are no live Petite Performances for the 2020 season.

Instead, BalletNova is producing "Forty & Fabulous" a Holiday Gala Fundraiswer featuring "The Nutcracker, the Motion Picture" and more! This virtual celebration can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home during the weekend of Saturday, December 12 and Sunday, December 13.
