Nutcracker Performance Program

Dance supplies would be the same as Ballet class for regular rehearsal, for performance requirements the Nutcracker 2023 page will be updated.

Dancers wishing to participate in YDA's production of the Nutcracker must either register in the Advanced Ballet program where Nutcracker dances are taught in class.  Or, a dancer must be registered in any class at YDA, making them eligible to audition for the Nutcracker Performance Program. Dancers enrolled in the Advanced Ballet program are also eligible to also audition for the Nutcracker Performance Program for additional dances/roles to those taught in class.

Ages: 2017 and older

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.


Each year Yarmouth Dance Academy performs a full production of the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker Ballet. The core and major roles of the ballet will be taught and performed by those dancers enrolled in both the Advanced Ballet program and Nutcracker Performance Program. There are many roles/dances to be filled, so we offer the Nutcracker Performance Program (NPP). This allows any dancer enrolled in any class at YDA, the opportunity to audition, participate and perform in The Nutcracker.


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.


*All registered Advanced Ballet dancers will have class repertoire and participate in Nutcracker, but are still eligible to participate in the Nutcracker Performance Program for additional role/dances.
