Advanced level students from Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy present the timeless story of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas through this family-friendly production created by MBSA Director, Rolando Yanes. After a fun evening out in the snow, Marie returns home to her toy nutcracker and while she ponders fond memories, a curious mouse causes all kinds of ruckus. After the commotion settles, Marie falls asleep and dreams of Santa’s magical land full of dancing elves and toys before she wakes on Christmas day.
Tickets are $21.
Rolando Yanes says “in creating ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, I wanted to incorporate different styles into the choreography. The students have been enjoying the challenges of weaving the classical, contemporary, and hip-hop techniques together. In rehearsals, they are learning how to create characters and dance as principals or soloists. This process is mirroring how rehearsal works for the Company, and preparing them for the experience they will eventually have later in their dance education.”
The running time for the performance is approx 55 minutes in one act. Perfect for ages 3 and up. Warm up for the holidays and support the talent and hard work of our Academy students!
