The Roswell Dance Theatre and Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance are proud to present our annual holiday tradition, The Nutcracker. Our extensive cast of world-class professionals, company students from the Roswell Dance Theatre, and dance students of all ages from Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance are certain to delight audience members of all ages, with fantastic costumes, beloved music, and exquisite dancing.

…At the conclusion of the festivities, the dancers wave goodbye to Clara and her Prince – a happy farewell for the fantasies that must fade away with her dream. They will await Clara’s return next Christmas – and she will always have her Nutcracker!

The Show Must Go On

Ongoing health restrictions require that the Byers Theater at City Springs remain closed through the end of 2020. While we will miss being in that fantastic space, we are very grateful to be able to perform in the performance studio in our new facility. Our dedicated directors have modified our production to comply with safety policies (face coverings, social distancing, no partnering, and limited hand props) in their best effort to keep all dancers, audience members, volunteers, directors and staff healthy.
