The North County Dance and Performing Arts Foundation proudly presents the eighteenth annual Nutcracker ballet at the Templeton Performing Arts Center for one weekend in December.  Dates for the performances are December  12 and13,.  This production has come to be cherished by the local community as a traditional rendition of the holiday classic appropriate for audiences of all ages.  Professional guest artists, many members of the community and professional choreographers come together to make this production truly grand.  Cast members train at Class Act Dance and Performing Arts Studio in Paso Robles and dancers in the Paso Robles Chamber Ballet are featured in the leading roles.  Under the direction of Cheryle Armstrong and Amy Wescom, this production features brilliant costumes and festive sets to compliment Tchaikovsky's beloved musical score.  This year's choreographers are: Lisa Deyo, Wendy Levanway, Annie Peterson and Taylor Santero.  

2015 dates for the performances are:
Friday, December 11 at 7:30 pm: Dress rehearsal open to students as a food bank fundraiser
Saturday, December 12 at 11:30 am
Saturday, December 12 at 3:00 pm
Sunday, December 13 at 1:30 pm

We are honored to have skilled dancers in our production. The role of the Sugar Plum Fairy will be performed by local aspiring ballerina Lauren Wood.  Clara, the young girl whose enchanted dreams are inspired by the nutcracker she receives, will be played by the adorably talented Mikaela Farrer.  Nathan Cottam, a professional dancer in San Francisco will play the role of the Cavalier.  Perhaps the most magical part of NCDPAF's annual Nutcracker Ballet is the combination of local talent and accomplished professionals.  This year's performance promises to provide moments of awe and pride as the audience soaks in the nostalgia of this classic holiday tale presented by exquisitely skilled professional dancers alongside North County's beloved children of the arts.  Director Cheryle Armstrong's commitment to providing her students an opportunity to train and perform with accomplished dancers continues to motivate them while providing the local audience a taste of professional classic ballet rarely available in our area.

Friday, December 11th, is a dress rehearsal open to local students in grades K-12.  Students are invited to attend for just the price of a canned food item and $10, and the food is donated to a local food bank.  This is a very popular event with school groups, scout troops, and other youth organizations, so reservations are necessary and one paid adult chaperone is required for every six children.  Come by Class Act Dance and Performing Arts Studio at 2508 Spring Street, Paso Robles, CA for your tickets or call for more information about these special events. 

Tickets will be available starting November first.  Prices are $25 for adults, $22 for seniors sixty-five and up, and for children under twelve.  Lap-sitting infants age one and under are free.  For tickets, call 1-800-838-3006 or visit  For more information, contact Class Act Dance and Performing Arts Studio at (805) 239-3668 extension 402.
