Nutcracker Sweets is back this season!

December 3rd – 19th

ARC Dance is excited to bring back its beloved, child-friendly, live Nutcracker Sweets this year. For the past 16 years, performances of this classic ballet featuring beloved characters Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Drosselmeier and the Sugar Plum Fairy have sold out. This revised 45 minute (no intermission, limited-capacity seating) performance will showcase the students of the School and members of the professional Company.

All Nutcracker Sweets performances this year take place in our home theater at the ARC Dance Space.

Online ticket sales close 24 hours prior to showtime. No direct (in person) ticket sales on day of show.

Individuals that are unvaccinated (all ages) will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time for entry and everyone will need to wear a mask while inside the building.
