The Nutcracker Children’s Classic features children and youth ages 3-18 years in the classical dance story of The Nutcracker. Colorado Dance Center’s features original dance choreography set to Tchaikovsky’s classical Nutcracker masterpiece.     

Clara receives a nutcracker doll at her family’s Christmas party. That night Clara dreams that mice have taken over her house and they try to steal her nutcracker doll. The nutcracker doll grows life-size and defends Clara and her home. After defeating the Mouse Queen, the nutcracker transforms into a handsome Prince. The Nutcracker Prince invites Clara to come on a magical journey with him to his Kingdom in the Land of Sweets. Clara travels through the snow and into the clouds where she is greeted by angels and dancing sweets. The Sugar Plum Fairy welcomes Clara and invites her to reign on the royal throne alongside her Nutcracker Prince. Clara begins to become sleepy and dozes off to sleep. She awakens in her living room holding her nutcracker doll in her arms. She wonders if the event was all a dream or if her beloved nutcracker doll is magical? The Nutcracker remains a treasured holiday gift to this day.
