The Nutcracker

Twin Cities Ballet performs its flagship traditional, full-length professional production of Denise Vogt's Nutcracker Ballet to full houses each year at the south metro's premier professional theater, Burnsville Performing Arts Center. The cast of approximately 120 consists of TCB's core company of professional dancers and apprentices, dancers from other local and national professional dance companies, students from area dance schools, and community residents.

This popular original production has become a cherished holiday tradition for many. In addition, as part of its outreach initiatives, every year since its inception in 2003 TCB also performs a special daytime performance of The Nutcracker for Elementary and Special Education students.

Twin Cities Ballet is the resident dance company of the state-of-the-art professional theater, the Burnsville Performing Arts Center.
