Ajkun Ballet Theatre’s annual New Rochelle Nutcracker features the Company’s professional dancers performing alongside the talented children of Westchester County in the Holiday classic The Nutcracker. Students ages 3-13 have been rehearsing weekly since October to present to their community a suite from the ballet staged to Pyotr IlyichTchaikovsky’s magical music score and Marius Petipa’s choreography.

The Nutcracker, a fairy tale ballet, premiered in 1892 in St. Petersburg, The Nutcracker has become perhaps the most popular of all ballets, performed primarily around Christmas time.
