Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Milwaukee: The Riverside Theater

This year the Pabst Theatre Group presents Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker streaming in Milwaukee, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at Riverside Theater. As part of the Pabst Theater Group, it is a multi-faceted entertainment organization that hosts over 400 events annually in three historic venues in downtown Milwaukee: Pabst Theater (est. 1895), Riverside Theater (est. 1928) and Turner Hall Ballroom (est. 1882) as well as venues throughout Metro Milwaukee. The Riverside Theater is named for its location along the Milwaukee River and is one of the most opulent of Milwaukee’s theaters, welcoming high caliber artists ranging from Kevin Hart and Neil Young to Norah Jones and Aretha Franklin.

Past Milwaukee Ballet Partnership: Elation Dance Center

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Milwaukee children from Elation Dance Center. Elation Dance Center offers quality dance instruction for children and adults. Elation believes in teaching children proper placement at a young age to prevent injury and instill proper technique. In addition, they strive to share the joy of this amazing art form.  While ballet is the core to dance training, they offer outstanding contemporary classes in jazz, tap, contemporary and hip-hop. Elation encourages their students to become well-rounded dancers by exploring many styles of dance. Their goal is to create well-rounded dancers and individuals for any given path in their futures. Their philosophy encompasses what they call the three C's - Concert, Competition & Community. Elation's direction is unique and allows its dancers to enjoy all aspects of the art of dance. Elation dancers have performed locally at venues such as Summerfest, State Fair and the Milwaukee Bucks. They have also performed internationally in London as well as Disneyland Paris.
