About the Shaftman Performance Hall at Jefferson Center

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Roanoke! Consistent with the goal to be a first class performance facility, Shaftman Performance Hall at Jefferson Center was modeled after a popular 17th century “shoe box” English opera house design. The majestic theater showcases an impressive balcony, classic appointments and superb acoustics. The auditorium has solid wood paneling and chairs are luxurious seats made of cherry wood and plush velvet cushions. Loges and chandeliers add extra charm and recall the spirit of an old world opera house. A first-rate performance facility with the latest technical equipment makes this an outstanding venue for classical and contemporary entertainment.

Roanoke Ballet Partnership: Valley Dance Productions

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Roanoke children from Valley Dance Productions. As dance educators Valley Dance Productions brings laughter, music, fun and dance into the lives of children. The schools help students explore the world of creativity through movement, music and dance with positive reinforcement. Dance helps develop a sense of self-respect, discipline, leadership and poise. These attributes will provide a solid foundation for a child's future endeavors.

Valley Dance Productions is located in the heart of downtown Roanoke with two separate studios, and offers classes for dancers of all ages (including adults), beginner through advanced. For those who desire to take their dance education to the next level, they also have performing companies: "Junior Company" for the young dancer and "Senior Company" for the advanced dancer.
