Nutcracker Performance Program

Dance supplies would be the same as Ballet class for regular rehearsal. 

Dancers must have their hair in a bun for all rehearsals.

Fall Term Only


Each year Yarmouth Dance Academy performs a full production of the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker Ballet. All ballet (Advanced Ballet Program and Ballet Program) classes at YDA will participate in performing in the Nutcracker.   The Advanced Ballet Program and the Ballet Program dancers will be taught dances for the Nutcracker in their classes. Because there are many roles/dances to be filled, we offer the Nutcracker Performance Program (NPP). This allows any dancer registered at YDA that meets the age requirements the opportunity to audition, participate and perform in The Nutcracker.  Dancers enrolled in the Advanced Ballet Program and the Ballet Program can participate as well in the Nutcracker Performance Program for additional roles/dances outside of their classes.  Dancers enrolled in Dance Exploration and meet the age requirements can also audition for the Nutcracker.

Mandatory auditions/placement class will be held

be posted.

Schedule: Tentatively scheduled for Tuesdays

Time: Registered participants will be divided into weekly rehearsal classes based on age, level and training. 

                  Rehearsal classes will run  30 mins - 2 hours depending on age/class. 

Participating in a production of this size requires commitment, focus and dedication.

Attendance is taken very seriously for the NPP rehearsal class, and missed rehearsals will not be tolerated.
