|The Nutcracker Ballet Theatre Company, a
501(c)(3) not for profit company, was formed for the sole purpose of producing
this wonderful family tradition in Port Huron. We are a grass roots
organization using students and professional dancers from all over southeastern
Michigan and Ontario. It took us more than a year to prepare for our first
production in 1990, and we have successfully presented The Nutcracker Ballet
every December since.
We are not a dance studio, or affiliated with any dance studio. So we welcome dancers and performers from all over the Blue Water area and beyond. All of our dancers audition in the spring. Rehearsals begin in late summer and continue throughout autumn up until our performances at the McMorran Auditorium in December. We cast 90 to 150 roles and are very proud of our productions and of the interest and enthusiasm the community has shown for The Nutcracker.
Our first year we performed twice and sold out both shows! We have since added a third, and now a fourth show to allow everybody a chance to see this wonderful production.
Each year we bring in a professional student couple to dance the Grand pas de Deux (Great Dance for Two). We encourage them to attend our cast reception and to visit with the students throughout their stay with us. It is such an incentive for the students to see excellence. We have had dancers from Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, New York and Canada.
