ARC Dance is excited to bring back its beloved, child-friendly, live Nutcracker Sweets this year. For the past 17 years, performances of this classic ballet featuring beloved characters Clara, the Nutcracker Prince, Drosselmeyer and the Sugar Plum Fairy have sold out entirely. This revised 90 minute performance, with one 15 minute intermission, will showcase the students of the School and members of the professional Company. Designed with young audiences in mind, the show is split roughly into two 45 minute sections which features beautiful music, gorgeous costumes, and exciting dancing. Young and old leave with the holiday spirit. ARC Dance Productions maintains and supports a 9,000 square foot facility in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. ARC presents dance education programs, performances, and a resident professional dance company (ARC Dance Company). We are thrilled to be welcoming ARC Dance back to the Snowy Owl Theater for their second show with us this season.
