New York Nutcracker

Rehearsals for the 13th annual New York Nutcracker begin Sept. 29th. This year’s performance tentatively takes place at St John’s Theatre at 2 p.m. on December 14th (December 7th as a second choice.) We are still waiting from the theatre for our confirmed date. Parents will be notified as soon as we hear from St. John’s.

Participation fee is $125 ($175 for students in two dances), due by October 18th. Children in Preballet, Primary, and Level classes are automatically assigned roles. Children who are not participating must inform the office in writing by October 18th .

Parent letters and permission slips will be sent home the week of Oct. 6th.  It is anticipated that we will have our confirmed date by that time.

New this year:  we are inviting Preballet students to participate in the New York Nutcracker .  AND we are inviting professional dancers from the Houston dance community to perform. We are excited about our changes! This year’s show will be better than ever!

We will again be collecting donations to UNICEF. Ask your teacher for a UNICEF donation box and turn it in after Halloween. The Claire School of Dance will match the Trick or Treat for UNICEF donations. And it’s fun!
