Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Denver: The Paramount Theatre

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Denver, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at the Paramount Theatre. Built by Temple Buell for Publix Theatres in 1930, the Paramount Theatre instantly surpassed the standards of the dozens of theatres that lined the streets of Denver and has remained the only local theatre of its time to maintain its original dignity and glamour. It is significant not only as an excellent illustration of Art Deco design and craftsmanship and a tribute to an architect who made considerable contributions to the Denver region, but as a unique reflection of a broad social and cultural phenomenon that prevailed in the early decades of the 20th century in Denver and the entire nation. The Paramount Theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and was declared an historic landmark by the City of Denver in 1988. Today, The Historic Paramount Theatre remains a vibrant, multi-event facility where Denver Metro residents enjoy a wide variety of entertainment options each year.  From rock concerts to dance performances, comedy to lectures and movies to Wurlitzer organ performances, the Historic Paramount Theatre remains a top choice in Denver's entertainment scene.

Past Denver Ballet Partnership: Cherry Creek Dance

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Denver children from Cherry Creek Dance. Cherry Creek Dance owner, Stephanie Prosenjak, opened the studio in 1994 bringing with her some of the top dancers from around the Denver metro area as teachers and as students. Since opening, Cherry Creek Dance has experienced great performances at events such as a Denver Broncos Halftime, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival and Disneyland's Magic Music Days to name a few. Cherry Creek Dance philosophy is to have fun, create great self-esteem and to put student's talents to good use. There are 2 full-scale recitals per year with moving lights, concert sound, special f/x and full production. There are also many master classes and guest teachers.
