A Ballet Performance For your whole Family

 The tradition of the Dance Connection’s Nutcracker

The Dance Connection’s Nutcracker is central New Jersey’s original youth ballet Nutcracker. Each year for almost 20 year’s the Dance Connection’s Nutcracker was a family tradition for so many parents and children in Central New Jersey. to the delight of many smiling faces, young ballerinas and dancers from ages 5-18 danced a narrated and abridged version of Tchaikovsky’s classical ballet. Although we will not be able to present our show live on stage, we still intend to delight and inspire all of you that have supported us over these past 20 years.

We will be streaming our Nutcracker on Christmas Eve at 2:00 & 6:00 pm (Eastern).

This broadcast will be completely free to anyone who wants to celebrate and share the goodwill of the season. Check back soon for more information about how to view this performance.
