Annual Productions

Annual Productions

Classical Ballet Academy believes in allowing all of our students to perform on a large stage and experience dancing in multiple shows per academic year.  To accommodate all of our programs, as well as growing demand from our audience members, we offer age and level specific performances.

Children's Program Productions

Our youngest students in the Children’s Program (Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet students) are invited to perform with their classes in The Nutcracker Sweet Suite Showcase, a condensed 45-minute version of the Nutcracker in December. They are also invited to perform in an annual spring ballet showcase in May. This will be the first time many of these young students perform on a large stage, so we think it’s important to keep the atmosphere relaxed so the dancers can have the best possible experience on stage.

All other classes in the Children’s Program (Beginning Ballet, Advanced Beginning, Boys Ballet, Intermediate Ballet, and Ballet 1-Ballet 4) are invited to perform in The Children’s Nutcracker, an abbreviated version of the Nutcracker in December. They are also invited to perform in a full-length story ballet in May. We believe that having multiple performance opportunities during the academic year is essential to growing as an artist in ballet.

Pre-Professional Program Productions

Pre-Professional Program students are expected to perform as part of their training during the academic year. A professional level, full-length production of The Nutcracker is performed in December and professional level, full-length ballets such as Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and Don Quixote are performed in May. The Contemporary, Modern, Jazz classes also perform in the full-length show A Christmas Carol in December and a spring concert in May. Pre-Professional students are invited to perform in our annual charity fundraiser Dance Collaborations in early spring. Proceeds from Dance Collaborations are donated to nonprofit organizations like The American Cancer Society, The Susan G. Komen Foundation, The Lupus Foundation, and Youth, Rights & Justice. We believe that giving back to the community as artists is incredibly important for our students and our school.

Performance Opportunities for Adults

We invite Adult dancers to perform character roles in the Pre-Professional ballet productions and to dance in the annual charity fundraiser Dance Collaborations. We feel strongly about giving Adult dancers the opportunity perform on stage as ballet is a performance art. If you are interested in performing with CBA, please speak with the Director.
