Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Asheville: Thomas Wolfe Auditorium at Harrah's Cherokee Center

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Asheville, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium at Harrah's Cherokee Center – Asheville, previously known as the U.S. Cellular Center and originally as the Asheville Civic Center Complex. It is a multipurpose entertainment center, located in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. Opened in 1974, the complex is home to an arena, auditorium, banquet hall and meeting rooms. The Auditorium is the annual home of the Asheville Symphony Orchestra and hosts the nation’s top performers, from Bob Hope, to Dave Chappelle and everyone in between. Resident companies include Asheville Symphony and Asheville Bravo and hosts opera, ballet, dance, community events, meetings and conventions, and concerts.

Past Asheville Ballet Partnership: Center Stage Dance Studio

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Asheville children from Center Stage Dance Studio. Center Stage Dance Studio has been ‘dancing” since 1979 and offers classes in a variety of styles for children ages 3 to 18. It is Western North Carolina’s top rated dance facility and is unique among dance studios in the area; all faculty hold degrees in dance or early childhood education, have danced with a professional company or maintain membership in Dance Masters of America. Founder Michele Lee remains committed to offering the highest quality dance education to students. The success of Center Stage lies in maintaining positive relationships with students and forming a life-long love of dance.  Many former students now bring their children to Center Stage!
