What could be better than attending the live performance of the Nutcracker? Dancing the ballet yourself, of course!
In these two-hour workshops students get to dress-up as either Clara or Fritz and dance and act out the story ballet of the Nutcracker. In the Act I workshops we will dance with hobby horses in the Party Scene, act out the battle of the mice and soldiers, and then journey to the Land of Snow where we dance as the falling snowflakes. In the Act II workshops, after learning a pantomime to relay the battle story to the Sugar Plum Fairy, we will learn a selection of dances from the Land of Sweets: Spanish, Chinese, Trepak, Reed Flutes, Bon-Bons and Sugar Plum Fairy, too! After water bottle break-time, we will stage the story ballet ourselves with a toy theater, paper dolls, and stickers. The arts-and-crafts portion of the workshop is an opportunity for the students to create their very own Winter Wonderland Scene (Act I craft), or Gingerbread House Scene (Act II craft) to take home. Crafts, costumes, and props all provided. Please bring your own water bottles.
