We are thrilled to be offering this holiday tradition, year after year!

Congratulations to our 2018 Nutcracker Cast! Everyone did an AMAZING job at auditions.  Please make sure you read the entire cast list, as some dancers are casted in multiple parts. Remember rehearsals start THIS WEEK, so make sure you have reviewed the rehearsal schedule and know your rehearsal days/times. Click the link below to see the cast list:

Nutcracker Cast List 2018

Questions? Call 541-791-9078 or email legacyballet@q.com

Performance dates are: December 6th, December 7th and December 8th.


Please note attendance to rehearsals is vital to having a wonderful, smooth performance.  Please be aware only ONE rehearsal can be missed, besides Thanksgiving weekend.  If more than ONE rehearsal is missed, you could potentially lose your role in the Nutcracker.  We have only 9 rehearsals for each scene to prepare, so let’s make them count!  There is only one weekend between Thanksgiving weekend and our Nutcracker performances this year, and with the Holiday Treats shows being that Saturday December 1st, we may add pick up rehearsals on Sunday December 2nd…depending on how the dancing looks at that point.

Rehearsals to be held at Legacy Ballet, 104 Main St. SE, Albany, OR 97321

Call 541-791-9078 or 541-619-4354 if unable to attend a rehearsal. (Remember, you can only miss one!)
