The Ballet Etudes Company Performs a Sensory-Friendly Version of our Nutcracker for the Special Needs Community

On Saturday, December 16th, 2017, the Ballet Etudes Company performed a beautiful sensory-friendly version of their beloved Nutcracker. This adapted performance for the special needs community ran for approximately 45 minutes without intermission. Care was taken to adapt The Nutcracker for this special performance.  Our hope is that the beautiful music, joyful dance and colorful costumes of The Nutcracker was a wonderful holiday treat for a very special audience who may not have had the opportunity to enjoy this timeless classic before.
