Baton Rouge Ballet Partnership: The Dance Center and School of Performing Arts

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Baton Rouge children from the Dance Center and School of Performing Arts. The Dance Center and School of Performing Arts is the result of a beautiful merger of two well established Baton Rouge art schools with combined experience of enriching students' lives for over 40 years. Its vision is to achieve excellence through quality instruction in dance, music, drama, and art for students wishing to pursue a professional career as well as a wonderful education for those who prefer to learn about their art form for their own personal enjoyment. For dance, the school primarily offers training in classical ballet; but, also classes in jazz, tap, and hip hop as well as workshops in Modern Dance and Flamenco and master classes with guest teachers throughout the year.
