Each year Ballet North provides a fully dressed touring performance event of the Nutcracker Suite primarily featuring Act 2.  This gives students a live performance of all those famous dances from Russian, Clowns, Candycanes, Sugar Plum, Chinese, Arabian, and lets the schools avoid the ever increasing cost of transportation of a school-wide field trip.  As you can see from the picture above we bring everything needed and turn gymnasiums into completely immersive live performance events.


For 2017 the following dates are available for Nutcracker School Tour:

Friday December 1

Friday December 8

All scheduling is done on a first-come, first serve basis.

If you are interested in the scheduling a live touring performance of the Nutcracker for your school please contact us at 816-454-4859 or by email at


Ballet North presents an in-house presentation of the Nutcracker Suite featuring Act 2 along with complimentary refreshments and of course picture taking with the Sugar Plum at our studio facility each December.  This event is PERFECT for the whole family and especially the youngest family members who may not be able to sit through a 2+ hour theatrical performance of the Nutcracker even though they enjoy those signature dances like Waltz of the Flowers, Spanish and Candycanes.  With a run time of about 45 minutes this event is just the right size to provide all those signature dances of the Nutcracker and be easy to handle for audiences of all ages. 

For 2017 the Nutcracker Children's Party will be on: Saturday December 2, with 2 pm and 4 pm performances
