The Nutcracker
School Show
Presented by Colonial Savings

As a major component of Ballet Frontier's community outreach, the goal of The Nutcracker School Show is to expose school children of all ages, races, and socio-economic backgrounds to the performing arts.  The show's objective is to inspire young people, especially those who are underprivileged in the community, with a quality, cultural experience.
Featuring an entertaining abridged version of Ballet Frontier's production of The Nutcracker  (Act II), this 1-hour show is both conducive and appropriate for a young audience.  A guest moderator welcomes the audience, outlines the story, and educates students about dance training and production design. Some children experience a professional ballet for the first time while being captivated by dazzling costumes, awe-inspiring set design, and world-class choreography. 
With a variety of characters and fast-paced sequences, students enjoy a colorful multicultural celebration of sweets from around the world: Spanish Hot Chocolate, Arabian Coffee, Chinese Tea, and Russian Candy. They see dances by sparkling angels and beautiful flowers in addition to Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy - all choreographed to Tchaikovsky's famous score. In addition, Ballet Frontier's Artistic Director, Chung-Lin Tseng has contributed his own artistic modifications to the original choreography of Roy Tobias.

The Nutcracker School shows are open to Title I schools in DFW.
