Ballet Etudes 2015 Nutcracker

Following the arabian pair, a hilarious group of Chinese dancers take to the stage during the second act of The Nutcracker ballet. These characters will have the audience laughing at their lively personalities and charming enthusiasm. The energetic dancers put on a great performance while on the tips of their toes in pointe shoes. Fans, flirting, and fun are what they bring to the show.

You can catch their act in one of the twelve shows that Ballet Etudes performs for the East Valley. It’s hard to believe that such a young group of dancers can put on such a professional performance of The Nutcracker ballet. Don’t take my word for it, check them out at Chandler Center of the Arts or Mesa Arts Center this holiday season.

Ballet Etudes 2015 Nutcracker

After two electrifying performances by the Spanish dancers and the Russian dancers, a new duo enter the scene to captivate the audience while allowing everyone to catch their breath. During the second act of The Nutcracker ballet, the Arabians join the party. The partners work seamlessly as they cover the stage; intertwined through their movements and the beautiful choreography. The music may be a little slower, but you won’t want to take your eyes of the pair.

I love this piece of the ballet. I’m always mesmerized by the way these dancers interact with one another. The connections between each other is beautiful. The lifts, the floorwork, the flexibility are all so inspiring. This is seriously one of my favorite pieces.

The talented dancers take over Chandler Center for the Arts and Mesa Arts Center for three weekends. If you are in Arizona and visiting the East Valley during the holiday season, you should check out one of Ballet Etudes‘ performances. This is a wonderful way to introduce your family to the ballet. Come out and show your support for the local arts.

Ballet Etudes‘ dancers hit the stage as an adorable troupe of Russian dancers. They are some of the entertainment you will find in the second act of The Nutcracker ballet. Once the music starts, many audience members will quickly recognize the piece. If you don’t believe me, check out Tchaikovsky’s Trepak here.

The troupe of dancers work together to dazzle the audience with their fancy footwork and choreography. Many times you can’t help but clap along; cheering them through their performance. The minute and ten second piece is jam packed with high energy from beginning to end. It’s amazing how these talented young dancers can perform not only one show but twelve with so much gusto.

A spicy pair of dancers set out kick up the heat during the second act of The Nutcracker ballet. The Spanish duo take over the stage with a high intensity performance. Flashes of red and black tango through the scene in perfect harmony. The dancers pack a lot of fancy footwork into a quick paced piece. You won’t want to blink or you might miss something!

The second act of The Nutcracker ballet takes the audience away from the Stahlbaum house and the snow covered forest. The curtain, instead, rises on a palace full of elegant dancers and guests. Clara is greeted by the Court Fairy into this majestic setting. She has arranged for an evening filled with entertainment. Dancers from afar will perform amazing pieces to a captivated audience.
