Performances

 

 

The Nutcracker

Gate City Ballet produces an annual production of the “Nutcracker” ballet. Auditions are held in mid to late September and are open to all area dancers ages 8 and up. Participation in the audition and production is voluntary. Dancers may either accept or decline a role after the audition process is over and casting is complete. Nutcracker is a very large time commitment and dancers and their families should carefully consider this before deciding to participate. A comprehensive guide is available at the time of audition and outlines all “Nutcracker” requirements and expectations.

 

 

Spring Ballet

Gate City Ballet produces an annual spring ballet concert in late April early May for all ballet students in Level I and up. It is a full length ballet, complete with story line, backdrops, and props. There is a costume fee for this performance. Deposits are due in October and balances are due in February. GCB tries very hard to keep the cost of costumes reasonable and will reuse or make homemade costumes whenever possible. Participation is not mandatory, but the experience is fun and exciting and all dancers are encouraged to participate. Some past performances

are Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Coppellia, and A Midsummer Nights Dream.
