New England Academy of Dance and New England Dance Theater proudly present their 36th annual Nutcracker Ballet. Please come enjoy our Fairfield County tradition!

The full-length ballet will have four performances at New Canaan High School ~
Friday, Dec. 10 at 7 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11 at 11am and 4pm., and Sunday, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m.

NEAD and NEDT’s Nutcracker Ballet is the only full-length production in the region to feature dancers accompanied by a live performance of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece by the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra, under the great direction of Jonathan Yates. This year’s production features over 100 ballerinas from New Canaan, Darien, Wilton, Stamford, Norwalk, Bedford, Pound Ridge and other communities in Fairfield and Westchester counties.

Lavish sets and dazzling costumes serve as the backdrop to the extraordinary talent of The Nutcracker cast, comprised of students from the New England Academy of Dance and professional guest artists from New York City. These dancers will be performing original choreography by company directors Ted Thomas, Frances Ortiz and Ginna Ortiz. “The Nutcracker signifies a magical time of year for people of all ages,” says Ginna Ortiz, one of the company’s directors, “and we are thrilled to give our dancers and our audience the opportunity to experience live performance of the individual pieces of music, bringing each scene to life.”
