Past Fairfax Ballet Partnership: Morgan Crisp Dance Company

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Fairfax and Fredericksburg area children from Morgan Crisp Dance Company. Morgan Crisp Dance Company's teaching philosophy is one that is focused on dance education and derived from many years in the dance industry. They follow a consistent and precise curriculum for dance students to grow through each level in which accurate information and proper dance technique are continuously enforced. Their dance program offers a wide range of dance classes and the curriculum employs many methods of learning and is designed to fully engage the dancer in each class in order to encourage artistic and technical development. Students and parents should always know what to expect from class. 

Morgan Crisp Dance Company presents many performance opportunities to their students in professional atmospheres. They also provide for their dance students the experience to take several master dance classes with current professionals in the industry, information on auditions in order to advance their training, and opportunities to be exposed to dance performances at venues such as the National Theatre and the Kennedy Center.
