2021 Nutcracker Sweets Audition

CBA’s Nutcracker Sweets

Charlottesville Ballet Academy will be hosting a student-led Nutcracker production this season! Nutcracker Sweets will be a condensed version of the beloved ballet created for the students of Charlottesville Ballet Academy.  The show will feature select professional guest artists from Charlottesville Ballet’s professional company, which has been on hiatus due to the pandemic. Charlottesville Ballet’s professional production of The Nutcracker traditionally features a cast of over 120 performers in multiple cities. The production requires logistics that would not be possible with our safety guidelines that protect the health of our dancers and patrons. The professional company artists will return to the stage in Spring 2022 and our full-length Nutcracker performances and events will return next year. We hope this interim production will make the holiday season magical for our young dancers and patrons!
