Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker Christmas Stream is Presented by House of Blues Cleveland

This year House of Blues Cleveland presents Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker streaming directly to your living room! Founder Isaac Tigrett grew up in Tennessee and developed a love of the Blues that he wanted to share with the world. In order to introduce the world to the music of the rural south, including the Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Jazz and Roots-based Rock & Roll, he created the House of Blues. The very first House of Blues opened in a converted historical house in Cambridge, MA in 1992. Now there are 11 locations throughout the United States dedicated to celebrating the diversity and brotherhood of world culture and promoting racial and spiritual harmony through love, peace, truth, righteousness and non-violence. The House of Blues commitment to serving the community will always be a priority. From feeding the homeless on Thanksgiving Day before opening to the public to its grass-roots efforts to find and support local artists, the House of Blues is more than a place for music and food.

Past Cleveland Ballet Partnerships: En Pointe Danse and Cuyahoga Falls Dance Center

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Cleveland children.

En Pointe Danse’s goal is to provide students with a strong technical foundation in ballet, and other dance forms, while encouraging a joy for dancing that they will take with them wherever they go. Students at En Pointe Danse should be able to apply the lessons learned in dance, such as discipline, perseverance, creative thinking and a developed sense of physical well-being, to the rest of their lives. The studio also promotes the growth of its students’ self-confidence, self-expression, and their ability to thrive in a performance setting. 

Cuyahoga Falls Dance Center strives to foster self-confidence, physical fitness, and artistic expression within its students. Students work hard, accept corrections gracefully, feel beautiful, and challenge themselves to move to music. The studio witnesses its students’ personal growth as they learn to interact with one another with courtesy and respect. Students are encouraged to give back to the community that has supported their endeavors and to become role models of accomplishments and integrity. Above all, the studio is a joyful place where its students smile, laugh, have fun and encourage one another.
