The West Michigan Youth Ballet proudly presents... 

The Nutcracker, a timeless ballet first performed in 1892 set to Tchaikovsky’s now-famous score.

It’s Christmas Eve, and Clara is thrilled to receive an intriguing present from her godfather – a nutcracker. Just as Clara’s nutcracker comes alive and transforms her night into a grand adventure that she will never forget, our dancers bring Clara’s vivid dreamscape to life on stage. Join Clara and her Nutcracker Prince as they battle the Mouse Empress and make their way to the Land of Sweets.
