The French Academie of Ballet is proud to be able to present this year’s Nutcracker production.

All enrolled students are encouraged to participate, and we are sure that you will choose to be a part of the Show; as we believe that performance opportunities are an essential component of the French Academie of Ballet’s curriculum.

We want to make you aware of a few things.

Our Nutcracker performance is on Saturday, December 21st.


All rehearsals and performance will take place on this day. We anticipate all dancers being called to the theater by 9:30 am on this day. We will be having the tech rehearsal in the morning, followed by an evening performance at 7:30 pm.

All participants must be committed to attending all of their scheduled classes and rehearsals.

Specific roles rehearse on most Saturdays (1:00 pm–3:00 pm), and some parts will have additional rehearsals on Sundays (11:00 am–3:00 pm).

There will also be extra Nutcracker rehearsals on Monday, November 25th and Tuesday, November 26th of Thanksgiving week break and rehearsals during Nutcracker rehearsal week (Saturday, December 14th–Saturday, December 21st).


More than three absences from class and rehearsals may result in a change in the dancer casting. When dancers are absent from rehearsals it affects the entire production and is unfair to the other dancers.

We would like for all of our dancers to participate in the production, as it is a time to bond with other students and to become the soul of the school.

To be included in this year’s Nutcracker production, you will need to register online.
