All performances are usually held in the Homestead High School Auditorium

How much is it to participate?

There will be a flat fee of $70 for each dancer participating in The Nutcracker. This fee includes your costume, rehearsal fees, dress rehearsals and props. You will also be responsible to purchase your tickets. When registering there is a Nutcracker box on the registration form. You can check if you are going to participate or not.

Will I need to buy anything else?

Yes, if you need to get tights or ballet slippers you will be able to do so at the NSDS store.

What is the time commitment?

Your child will learn the dance during the regular Dance Basics or Ballet class time that you sign up for during the first semester. They’ll practice during the ballet portion of the hour class. There will also be 1 Saturday afternoon rehearsal on November 11th.

Is this performance a requirement?

No, it is your choice on if you would like your dancer to participate, though everyone in the class will be learning the Nutcracker dance throughout the ballet portion of class. We highly recommend participating in The Nutcracker though, it’s a great time and you won’t want to miss the show!

Who is invited to the show?

Everyone - including parents, grandparents, family, friends, and neighbors! This is now considered an annual community Holiday event.

How much are tickets?


Will videotaping be allowed?
