The Nutcracker

Canyon Concert
Since 1978, the Canyon Concert Ballet Company has been an active and cherished contributor to the region’s cultural landscape. They are Northern Colorado’s preeminent professional dance company and school. This year, the company presents their 34th performance of The Nutcracker in Northern Colorado. They are thrilled to announce the addition of Daniel R. Simmons to their faculty, as Artistic Director. This classic childhood fairytale is a family tradition and one of the most popular ballets in the world. Under the artistic direction of Mr. Simmons, the live symphonic accompaniment and beautiful sets make this particular adaptation of the definitive holiday story come to life with elegance and magic.
