Ballet Chelsea offers two major performance opportunities each year. The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition performed in early December, and a production selected from a diverse repertory of classic ballets and original works are performed in the spring. Company Members also have the opportunity to participate in outreach events in the community.

This year’s Nutcracker ballet will be held on Dec. 3-4, 2016. Rehearsals for most roles will begin in September, and are typically held weekly on Saturdays and/or Sundays.
