Experience the magic of Ballet Midwest’s Nutcracker, a holiday tradition since 1977!

Ballet Midwest’s Nutcracker is a holiday tradition for our family! The talent of these dancers is amazing!

Join Clara at a Christmas Eve party where she receives a gift that will soon take her on a fantastic journey.
