The ultimate holiday tradition for the youngest to the seniors in every family, seeing Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker creates holiday memories that last a lifetime. Moscow Ballet’s company of almost 40 dancers is the only internationally touring ballet group to perform to critical acclaim in over 75 North American cities annually. The renowned, award-winning principal dancers and corps de ballet thrill audiences with their expertise, dramatic expression and stunning leaps, drops and turns. The production is known for its dedication to world peace placing Act II in the “Land of Peace and Harmony,” featuring a cannon that shoots roses and a stunning 2-dancer “Dove of Peace” with a 20’ wingspan. All ages feel the spirit of the season at Great Russian Nutcracker performances through the beauty of romantic hand-sewn costumes, 9 shimmering backdrops with authentic splashes of Russian history and fanciful effects such as; life-sized Matrushka (Nesting) Dolls; a 3-headed Rat King and a Troika Sleigh ride through the magical Snow Forest (with falling snow) escorted by Father Christmas and Snow Maiden.

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


Moscow Ballet’s “Dance with Us” Audition Director Vanessa Hehn will be present to select 60 student dancers 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 Dance City Productions FL.

Bingham Center has provided Midland-Odessa children the best dance experience for over 60 years. Continuing down the path laid for her; first by Mr. Bingham and next by Ms Joy Swift, owner Jill Clements has worked diligently to maintain that Bingham be the studio of choice. Celebrating their 10 year anniversary of owning the studio, Jill and husband Darin decided to build on a new location adding Tumbling and Tae Kwon Do to the list of classes offered. In the spring of 2014, a modeling and talent agency was added as well.  The studio continually strives to offer the best curriculums, a staff of the highest standards, and the place where fun and excellence unite!

"[The dancing] is so fluid and carefree."
