Nutcracker Dance Workshops for Ages 7 to 12 Part I

In Grandma's Attic

Kidz Tips
  • Learn the beautiful waltz!
  • Costumes and props provided

Note: Parts I & II are separate workshops. Students may enroll in only one workshop of choice, or, take the pair of Workshops---either way, students experience the magic of the Nutcracker! (We read the entire story at each workshop).

In these 2-hour workshops, students get to dress-up, dance, and learn pantomime from excerpts of the Nutcracker story. For Part I, students will learn Clara’s solo dance with her new Nutcracker Doll, then her role in the rescue of the Nutcracker followed by a dance with her partner, the Nutcracker Prince. In the second half of the Part I Workshop, students learn a beautiful dance of the falling Snowflakes from the Land of the Snow in lovely white tutus, or prince costumes.

In the Part II two-hour workshops, students will learn a beautiful dance in gorgeous satin dresses for the Angels who anticipate the arrival of Clara, the Prince, and the Sugar Plum Fairy. Clara's/the Prince's pantomime relaying the battle between the soldiers and mice is always great fun to learn in this workshop!

In the second half of the Part II Workshop, students learn steps and phrases from the beautiful waltz of the flowers danced in pretty flower tutus, and dragonfly attire!

Dance class plus warm-ups & stretches precede workshop themes.

After break-time for water bottles, we will do some yoga for relaxation time.

For artistic creative time, students will decorate a Happy New Year scene to take home!
