The Nutcracker Ballet

The Nutcracker Ballet


Welcome to Nutcracker 2021, a year where our return to more normal activities will bring this wonderful community program back to our main stage at Red Deer Polytechnic. 

We invite dancers from ages 4 to 18 with dance experience to join our Nutcracker troop under the professional instruction of Tania Strader. She has choreographed and directed this production for many years. 

Join our team of dancers as you step into the enchanted world of Nutcracker and learn the steps to this famous ballet while meeting new friends, developing your dancing skills and performing to your family, friends and the Red Deer community. 

Auditions will be held on Saturday, September 11 and Sunday, September 12. 

What can you expect this year?

Practices will take place at the studios in the Arts Centre at Red Deer Polytechnic. A schedule and map will be sent to you upon registration. Rehearsals are scheduled on weekends and time slots will be designated according to roles given.
