NUTCRACKER: Our annual full length Nutcracker ballet has been a favorite in the community since 1986. Students are selected for roles, starting at Beginner Ballet I (typically age 7) through advanced and adult. Two or three performances are staged in December at the beautiful Brighton Center for Performing Arts Theater.
PRESENTATION DAY PERFORMANCE: This full school performance takes place at the end of Semester II, typically at the end of May. All dancers from each class and level (including ballet, lyrical, hip hop, etc.) in the school have the option to be included in the School Presentation Performance which takes place at Jane Tasch Performing Arts Theater in Pinckney.
*Costuming for the performance is provided by the school, so parents will not have to purchase additional ‘show’ costumes above and beyond having new tights, shoes and minimal make-up for performances. All costuming and music selections are kept classically conservative and modestly age appropriate.
IN OUR REPERTOIRE: In addition to our longest running annual production of the NUTCRACKER, our studio has deep repertoire of children’s ballets, well loved classical ballets and original pieces including: Alice in Wonderland, Madeleine, Peter and the Wolf, Can-Can, Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, Pas de Quatre, Swan Lake (Act II), Les Sylphides, Giselle, America Forever, Ballet School, Bolero, Variations on a Flute, Rhapsody in Blue.
DANCE MINISTRY & LYRICAL DANCE CLASS: Our Lyrical Dance and Dance Ministry groups continues to present beautiful original pieces choreographed to contemporary Christian music. The dancers are as well showcased in our presentation day performance! Some of these are: Oceans, Multiplied, Not to Us, Give me Faith, How Beautiful, Orphans of God, and many others.
