Nutcracker (Annual)

The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker production is an annual tradition within our organization. Every December, students from our facility showcase their talents in a local, community rendition of the classic fairytale ballet of the same name. 

It originally only involved the dance students from the Jete dance studio, but has evolved over the years to include the Circus, Music, and Theatre programs. It has also evolved to include guest performers from the Lakeland area to star in the lead roles and to be part of the cultural dance showcase. 

We accept auditions starting in August every year. If you are interested in auditioning to be part of the Nutcracker production, please email us. Choreography and costume fees may apply unless supplied by yourself or another organization. 

We are always looking for businesses to sponsor this event. If you are interested in donating or sponsoring this event, please email us. Your company logo will be included in the program and will be thanked during the opening speech by our chair.
