This year marks Ballet Brazos' 8th Annual Nutcracker Ballet, proof that collaboration is a wonderful way to allow dancers, teachers, and audiences to experience the wonder of classical ballet. Dancers for our productions are cast by auditions open to the entire Bryan-College Station community and by guest professional ballet dancers.
Note from the Artistic Advisor
Congratulations to the more than 125 performers who have been cast in the 8th annual Ballet Brazos production of The Nutcracker! We are excited to welcome you to the Ballet Brazos family, and we look forward to the time we'll spend together in rehearsals and on the stage.
Performing in The Nutcracker is a rite of passage for ballet dancers everywhere. Many a ballet career has been launched as a tiny mouse scampers on stage past a growing Christmas tree and thinks, "This is what I want to do! There has never been a moment more magical than this!"
It is our hope that in the coming months, you will find your technique improving through the rehearsal process, that you will make new friendships, and develop a life-long desire to be a part of the performing arts. But most of all, we hope that when you step onto the stage in December, you feel the rush that so many before you have felt, and think, "There has never been a moment more magical than this!"
Miss Katy (former Mouse, Sugar Plum Fairy, and everything in between)

Ballet Brazos will perform excerpts of the 8th Annual Nutcracker Ballet for the community at Larry J. Ringer Public Library in College Station and Clara B. Mounce Public Library in Bryan to bring the wonder of The Nutcracker Ballet to children and their families to cultivate an appreciation for the arts. For the Nutcracker Storytime, a special guest will read the story of The Nutcracker while the dancers act out the scenes from the book. Following the performance, cookies will be served while children may have pictures taken with the Ballet Brazos dancers.
Last year's events filled up quickly so arrive early to get your free admission ticket.
