Moscow Ballet is honored to be included in the premiere season of the renovated, restored and expanded Robinson Center Music Hall

All ages are invited to celebrate Christmas with the Moscow Ballet company of almost 40 ballerinas and danseurs on their 25th Anniversary Tour of North America in 2017. Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its award-winning Principal Dancers, lavish costumes in the style of the Victorian era, many backdrops created by “La La Land’ Set Concept designer Carl Sprague, and its Russian focus including life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, Russian folk legends Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) and Troika Sleigh. Adults and children enjoy the special effects of the flapping winged owl on the Grandfather clock, the growing 50 ft tall Christmas Tree, the Dove of Peace with a 20ft wingspan, and of course, the leaps, spins, and extraordinary moves of the company all performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete and incomparable score. 

Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow Ballet's 2017 Little Rock Performances!

Fall in love with the art of dance in a non-competitive and age appropriate environment at Little Rock’s Dancers Corner School of Dance. The recreational program focuses on Classical Ballet and also introduces students to Tap & Jazz. The Ballet Company classes offer pre-Pointe & Pointe training. Voted "Best Choice for Kids & Families" by readers of Kid's Directory two years running, Dancers' Corner was established in July of 2010 by Mrs. Sandy Hunter Miller.  The other teachers from McAfee joined Mrs. Sandy in creating the new studio, giving the staff an average of 20 years teaching experience. Dancers' Corner recently celebrated it's 5th year with an amazing Jazz & Tap showcase and Cinderella Ballet! Classes are offered during the morning, early afternoon, after school and in the evening to meet the needs of many families. The homeschool program now offers 4 age ranges with mid-day class times. Students may begin as early as 2 years old with our Tots in Tutus, Mommy & Me program, continue with independent classes starting at 3 years old, and join our company performance classes from ages 6 to adult. The studio presents and offers an age appropriate experience for all involved.  From youngest to oldest and most advanced students, costumes are modest, and music and choreography are appropriate for the dancers and the audience members who will be watching them perform.
