Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Bristol: The Paramount Center for the Arts

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Bristol, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at Paramount Bristol, a multi-use performing arts center in the heart of downtown presenting music, dance, comedy, film, theater and family entertainment. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, its lavish interior and iconic marquee are characteristic of Art Deco movie palaces built in the 1930s. The Paramount Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, owns and operates the theater.

Past Bristol Ballet Partnership: Watts Dance Studio

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Bristol children from Watts Dance Studio. Watts Dance Studio (WDS) was established in 1952 by Ann Haynes Watts with a comprehensive curriculum and dance training program. WDS was established in Elizabethton, TN and added the Bristol location in 1969. Today, Watts Dance Studio provides a full curriculum at both the Elizabethton and Bristol locations providing versatility in performing traditional and contemporary dance forms. WDS provides a nurturing environment for dance students to reach their fullest potential through a wide array of dance experiences. Led by an accomplished dance faculty, students at Watts Dance Studio learn the discipline and technique that has produced thousands of dancers for multiple generations. WDS is dedicated to the instruction of the dance arts. The understanding of proper body placement and technique, the beauty of dance as an art form, and the excitement of cultural exchange are the guidelines for classes. Performance is another important aspect of dance training – showcasing the dancer's hard work!
