Date/Time
Date(s) - December 14, 2013
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Location
Stephens Auditorium, Ames, Iowa

This annual Iowa State Center production features choreography by Robert Thomas and Miyoko Kato Thomas of the Dancenter (Ames); over 200 local dancers from surrounding central Iowa communities; and principal dancers performing the roles of the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier.

The Nutcracker Ballet tells the story of a young girl, a heroic prince, and the fantastic dream they share. From the opening party scene to the last tinkling notes of Tchaikovsky’s famous score, a festive holiday spirit permeates the whole performance.

Nothing else will get you in the mood for the holidays like The Nutcracker Ballet can. When young dancers sweep across the stage creating visions of sugarplums and Candyland, you’ll be completely enchanted.
