Exclusive to the Great Russian Nutcracker is the stunning Dove of Peace, with 20ft wingspan, and created by 2 dancers moving as one; Russian folk legends Father Christmas/Ded Moroz and Snow Maiden/Snegurochka who escort Masha and Nutcracker Prince to the Land of Peace and Harmony; life-sized Matrushka Dolls; and whimsical 10ft tall silk puppets. New in 2014 is an authentic Russian Christmas puppet play and Masha’s magical Toy Cabinet. Wearing intricately detailed costumes, many with shimmering Swarovski crystals, the award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet bring Tchaikovsky’s master score and the holiday season to life!

 


Local Audition Information Coming Soon for Moscow  Ballet's 2015 Performances!


60 student dancers will be selected to perform side-by-side with the professional company of 40 Russian dancers. Students are cast in ancillary roles of Party Children, Mice, Snowflakes, Angels, and more. Applicants must be between 7 and 16 years old, have at least one year of ballet training, dress in dance attire and may bring Pointe shoes. The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. “The payoff at the end of the rehearsals is the opportunity to be part of Christmas magic, to dance under shimmering lights with award-winning Russian dancers against exquisite hand-painted sets. It’s great for the kids. They get to dance in a professional production,” affirms Margaret Engle of Charlottesville Ballet School. 

Joy's Dance Factory is a highly regarded dance studio that has operated in Lethbridge for 32 years. The 9,000 square foot facility includes three large studios with sprung floors and plenty of mirrors, 2 costume rooms, change rooms, and reception area. The studio offers a wide range of programs for all ages and instruction in many dance styles. The studio follows the Royal Academy of Dance ballet syllabus, ADAPT tap and jazz syllabus, and the Al Gilbert tap syllabus.  These proven programs, delivered by our qualified staff, ensure that our dance students reach their dance goals.  Students of the studio have the opportunity to participate in tap, jazz and ballet examinations.  We have a large number of students in our festival troupe that compete in various dance festivals in Western Canada and the U.S.A. All classes at Joy’s Dance Factory are instructed by professional, qualified teachers.  Instructors have trained in dance for many years and have also studied the art of teaching dance. Class sizes are limited thereby providing the best learning environment for the dance student. Choreography and costuming for dance performances is always age appropriate.
