We are thrilled to announce that Wade Walthall's The Nutcracker is back live and in person this holiday season! We are still sorting out the production and theater details, but expect to be wearing face masks as a performer and/or an audience member. We hope you are as excited as we are. Join us in sharing the magic of this show by having your dancer perform with us this year!

*Performance dates are subject to change.

Providing high-quality dance education and performance opportunities to all of our students is the core of our mission. Performing is a valuable learning opportunity and a privilege. It is designed to foster pride in team effort and it is open to any student who meets our age, class level, and attendance requirements. Please prepare your dancer to do their best, have a positive attitude, and encourage them to have the most fun along the way.


Our artistic staff is very excited to see your dancer this Saturday! For questions, please contact our School Principal Nathan Cook at


Please note: We would like for all the students to have the opportunity to be seen and considered for casting. But this does not guarantee them to be cast in this year’s Nutcracker. Auditions are part of a dancer’s experience and at ECB we are committed to providing our students a safe, fun, and nurturing environment. Casting is at the sole discretion of the artistic staff. The audition process serves to educate our dancers and helps to determine the best parts for each dancer.
