Moscow Ballet’s Usual Venue In Pueblo: Pueblo Memorial Hall

This year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is streaming in Pueblo, directly to your living room! In a regular year Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is performed at Pueblo Memorial Hall, which was dedicated on September 25, 1919 by President Woodrow Wilson at his last public address and was named as a memorial to those who died in World War I. Memorial Hall is a rare and beautiful example of late 19th Century and early 20th Century auditorium design. It is one of the few representative structures of this period and type in the State of Colorado. The Hall is notable for a number of singular performance events: In addition to President Woodrow Wilson’s final public address, Rafael Cavallo was the first symphony orchestra conductor at Memorial Auditorium and John Phillip Sousa was the first band concert performance. It is famous for the broad variety of performances it has provided for the regional community including community arts performances, dance recitals, theater performances and more. It has served as the anchor of the regional cultural community for more than nine decades.

Past Pueblo Ballet Partnership: Turning Pointe School of Dance

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Colorado children from Turning Pointe School of Dance. Turning Pointe School of Dance’s mission is to fully develop a dancer’s skills and talents and to encourage students to use their gifts to bless others in the community and beyond. The vision is that each student would learn not only to perform dance/theater, but also to inspire them to appreciate and love dance and creative arts. Turning Pointe Dance is a dance studio owned and operated in Colorado Springs by Tina Cook. With more than 14 years of successful operation, they offer classes for ages 2 through adult in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, modern, worship, and much more. The studio provides excellence in dance and theater instruction while cultivating hearts and nurturing creativity. From bunny hops and streamers with the budding ballerinas to pirouettes with the pointe students, there is something special for everyone.
