It’s Nutcracker time! Join Ms. Emily and friends in celebrating. Dance 101 is offering a themed dance camp to get the sugarplum fairy dancing in your head this holiday season.  Due to popularity we are offering 2 different weekends to participate in the camp.

‘Nutcracker Sweet’ will teach children a dance based on the two acts of the traditional Nutcracker story. Listen to the Nutcracker story before you learn the steps from the party scene, dance like the Ballerina and Moor dolls, and battle the Mouse King to save the Nutcracker. Enjoy a holiday snack and craft while you rest before traveling through the whirling snowflakes and finishing your trek through the Land of Sweets.

Finish your holiday adventure with a performance at 7:40 and hot chocolate after. ‘Nutcracker Sweet’ is open to dancers ages 3- 12 from all backgrounds! We will be dividing into 2 age groups 3-6 and 7-12 with 2 different performances at the end.

Parents, enjoy four hours of holiday shopping bliss, knowing that your children are enjoying their magical journey through the Land of Sweets. View the Monthly Events Calendar to register.
