School Shows – Nutcracker

The Nutcracker School Performances: Each year, Huntsville Ballet Company invites North Alabama elementary-aged students the opportunity to attend low-cost field trip performances of The Nutcracker, featuring the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra.

HBC’s version of The Nutcracker features lesson plans to connect the ballet with the 3rd grade Huntsville History curriculum along with other academic and artistic connections. The Nutcracker school shows reach up to 4000 students from diverse school systems across North Alabama each year, creating a love for the ballet in young audiences across the community.

This opportunity may be the only chance your students have to encounter the magic of a professional ballet company performing with a live symphony orchestra. It is an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives! 

We will also be sending our cross-curriculum lesson plans to allow you to share with administrators how attending the ballet connects to your curriculum. State and CCSS standards are provided.
