Colorado Conservatory of Dance (CCD), formerly the School of Ballet Nouveau Colorado, presents the traditional, family-friendly holiday favorite, The Nutcracker.
CCD boasts gorgeous sets and costumes, stunning choreography, professional guest artists from around the world, and ample FREE parking. CCD’s family friendly performance of The Nutcracker is Denver’s only production that invites all children from the audience onstage after the show to learn choreography from the holiday classic. Audience members also have the opportunity to meet the Nutcracker Prince, Clara, and many other characters from the ballet for autographs and photos to complete the magical experience.
CCD’s 2015 production of The Nutcracker runs December 12, 13, 19, and 20. This year, CCD will welcome international guest stars Adiarys Almeida and Joseph Gatti* (both former Principal Dancers with Corella Ballet and Cincinnatti Ballet, and First Soloists with Boston Ballet) and John Lam** (Principal Dancer, Boston Ballet) to dance the leading roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier. Additionally, Marian Faustino and Corbin Kalinowski of Wonderbound and Colby Foss will have guest roles in the production.
CCD believes dance should be an enriching and fulfilling experience that is accessible to all. To help fulfill this commitment, each year CCD gives nearly $90,000 in need and merit based scholarships to students. This 23rd anniversary season, ten scholarship students will participate in The Nutcracker, many of them dancing major roles.
CCD’s students are extremely dedicated and rehearse The Nutcracker choreography for almost 150 hours before taking it to the stage.
