Heritage Ballet- The Nutcracker
For the upcoming holiday season, Heritage Ballet LLC is excited to present a Nutcracker Storytime program for young children ages 3 – 8. The children will listen to the reading of the story about The Nutcracker and dancers from Heritage Ballet will bring the characters to life by performing an excerpt from The Nutcracker to go along with the story. Then the children will try some of the ballet steps with the dancers.

The children will also be given an opportunity to see and learn about the exercises the dancers do to warm-up, the costumes and pointe shoes used in performances, along with some audience participation from the children.
