Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Fargo children from Camria Ballet Academy. The instructors at Camria Ballet Academy stress the discipline and tradition of classical ballet. They believe most important to a dancer is the body, bone structure, and endurance. The body must be molded into an instrument and this can only be achieved slowly and scientifically, and under the best supervision available to the student. In order to provide the best supervision to each student, the instructors at Camria Ballet Academy are all Dance Masters of America certified. Camria Ballet’s business is to help their students develop to the fullest possible extent and because of this former students have gone on to become the registrar of the School of Ballet Arizona and a principal of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School; they have been accepted to many dance institutes around the world, including the State Ballet of Missouri, Vail International, the University of Wisconsin dance program, Milwaukee Ballet, Minnesota Ballet Academy, International Music Camp dance division, and the Rosella Hightower International School of Dance in Cannes, France and many have performed with professional companies such as the National Ballet of Canada and Interlochen Arts Academy.
