The Santa Clarita Ballet – November 2017

by | Oct 26, 2017 | Community

 For the dancers at Santa Clarita Ballet, Christmas starts in September with the first note of Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Snowflakes. Each week, the upper company rehearses for the moment that the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Centre at College of the Canyons raises the stage curtain. Santa Clarita Ballet’s annual production of The Nutcracker hails the beginning of the holiday season without fail. This winter classic weaves whimsy and wonder seamlessly with movement and expression to create the perfect way to spend your Saturday or Sunday of December 16 and 17. Cheer for the Nutcracker and his soldiers as they battle the malicious Rat King, laugh as dozens of gumdrops pour out of Madame Ginger’s skirts, and clap along as the Russian dancers spring through hoops.
There is no shortage of adventure, humor, or creativity in The Nutcracker for all ages. In addition to Santa Clarita Ballet’s highly trained company, The Nutcracker features professional dancers, Bryan Wallk as the eccentric godfather and inventor, Raydel Caceres as the charming cavalier, Danny Davalos as the entertaining Harlequin, and, Santa Clarita’s very own alumni, Hannah Wilcox as the gorgeous Sugar Plum Fairy. The Nutcracker has become a hallmark for fourth graders in the Newhall School District, who attend a special outreach performance. Santa Clarita Ballet is happy to serve as an introduction to the arts for children throughout the valley, and as a wonderful seasonal tradition for the Santa Clarita community as a whole.
