The Roswell Dance Theatre and Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance are proud to present a holiday tradition, The Nutcracker. We are very excited to return to the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center to perform this year.

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, magical scenery, 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!
