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.
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.
