5th of December
In the world of dance, and especially ballet, – no Christmas would be complete without the magical tale of The Nutcracker.
Set to Piotr Tchaikovsky’s beautiful and timeless score, The Nutcracker tells the story of Clara – who is gifted a magical nutcracker that takes her on adventures through the lands of flowers, snowflakes and sweets where she meets one of ballet’s most famous character’s. The Sugar Plum Fairy.
At the EDA, we love the tale of The Nutcracker so much we have not only performed it as a Christmas Ballet but also performed it with a Musical Theatre twist, which inspired us to create this Nutcracker Activities package we would like to share with you ….
Enjoy the story of The Nutcracker with activities and crafts you can download and create. Make sure to share pictures of your creations with us on Facebook or Instagram or by tagging English Dance Academy!
