This much-loved 90-minute holiday ballet includes students of the School and professional dancers of ARC Dance Company. The December 2nd show will feature Cornish+ Dance Prep students who will be joining ARC’s production this year.

All Nutcracker Sweets performances at the ARC Dance Performance Space in Ballard have sold out for the past 18 years. “We are excited to bring back our ‘Fastest Nutcracker in the West,’ to Seattle Center (Cornish Playhouse) and Shoreline this year. It has been a joy to see the production grow and become a tradition for audience members in the community,” said Artistic Director and Choreographer Marie Chong.
