06 Dec Another dazzling season of Nutcracker
Dancers from the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance along with the in-house performing company the Roswell Dance Theatre are catching their breath after the annual production of The Nutcracker. Elegantly costumed and staged, the show was enjoyed by 10,000 patrons at twelve shows over two weekends at the beautiful Byers Theatre at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center.
The Roswell Dance Theatre beautifully stages this holiday tradition every year, bringing joy to all who witness its magic. Company dancers begin learning and rehearsing their parts in August, at the pre-season Nutcracker boot camp. The dancing continues in earnest throughout the fall, with the dancers taking the stage the day after Thanksgiving to open the 12-show run. The amount of time and effort spent by each choreographer, instructor, dancer, stage hand, and volunteer is evident at every show.
After a short winter break, the school and company dancers will be back in the studio preparing for their upcoming spring production of Mary Poppins, set to open April 30, 2023. Show details coming in January.
