The Gift of Christmas Tour Comes to Little Rock Thursday, December 26

Moscow Ballet brings the Gift of Christmas Tour to Little Rock with Great Russian Nutcracker performances bringing holiday magic to life and creating unforgettable memories for all ages. The company performs at the Robinson Center on Thurs., Dec. 26 for 3:00 p.m. matinee and 7:00 p.m. evening performances. 

Moscow Ballet makes Christmas gift giving easy with the holiday performance that delights all ages…from the life-sized Kissy Doll to the fierce, red-eyed Rat King; and the Russian Troika Sleigh bringing Masha through the Snow Forest to the Land of Peace and Harmony which is populated with 10 foot tall dancing puppets, exotic flying birds and dancing couples from the world’s five great heritages.

About the Robinson Center Music Hall

For 76 years, Little Rock’s historic Robinson Center welcomed citizens and visitors to experience a variety of entertainment – concerts, sporting events, conventions, community activities, conferences and stage performances of every kind.  The center closed July 1, 2014 for extensive renovations, restoration and an expansion.  It will re-open November 10, 2016.

Renovations include enhanced acoustics, updated interior finishes, technology upgrades, dressing room upgrades, expanded loading dock and storage areas, expanded public lobbies and restrooms, onsite box office, a new centrally-located grand stair to link multiple lobby levels, new public drop-offs and parking garage vestibules, a brand new conference center overlooking the Arkansas River featuring a grand ballroom and outdoor terrace, and much more.

Host Studio: Dancers Corner School of Dance

Dancers' Corner was established in July of 2010 by Mrs. Sandy Hunter Miller when her teacher, Lorene McAfee Patterson, retired and closed McAfee Ballet. Mrs. Sandy wanted to continue a ballet-based program in her mentor's footsteps. The other teachers from McAfee joined Mrs. Sandy in creating the new studio, giving the staff many years of experience working together as students, classmates and teachers. Their recreational classes focus on the classical art of ballet with tap and jazz to enhance the learning experience. They also offer ballet only & dance company classes for students who are interested in a more focused curriculum, including extra community performances.
