Scroll below for the Announcement of Lead Casting for our Nutcracker Ballet 2021 slated for the BFAC stage weekend of December 11th & 12th.2021
Further details will be updated here as available.
DancEncounter School of Dance has presented The Nutcracker since its inception in 1993. It is always in the odd numbered calendar years on a bi-annual basis and has always consisted of an entire student cast, including lead and soloist roles. Often, volunteers have fullfilled background stage roles, so don't hesitate to reach out, or if you are more inclined to volunteer backstage, front of house, work as an intern in your field or as a fundraising wizard, our dance family welcomes you in most capacities! (subject to reference).
Otherwise, participants of ballet classes age 3-4 years and older are invited to perform as part of their class experience. There's a costume fee ($85) and recital fee ($25) in addition to the tuition costs ( see Class Info). Ticket Fees for friends and family to support from the audience are handled via the professional online theatre ticketing service and cost approx. $22 - 26 per seat with excellent viewing in the stadium style, professionally equipped and ran Batavia Fine Arts Centre ( on campus of Batavia High School).
