The American Midwest Ballet is a dance company in Iowa. For 14 years, they have kept their annual tradition of performing The Nutcracker featuring local student dancers. The company said that their mission is to “inspire people through dance programs of the highest quality: breathtaking performances, enriching education, and uplifting community engagement.” The company believes that dance is for everyone, and so they have partnered with more than 100 schools and 30 community partners to bring the inspiration of dance to people from diverse backgrounds.
This holiday season, American Midwest Ballet is taking you to a magical world not too far away. It is about a little girl named Clara who is given a nutcracker, and the events that ensue. The voyage of the story begins with the gift, and the Nutcracker immediately becomes the center point. Some individuals believe that the Nutcracker is a symbol of strength; it is frequently used to represent someone who defends another.
The Nutcracker is a ballet whose music was written over a century ago by Russian composer Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky. He was a Romantic Period composer best remembered for his works The Nutcracker and Swan Lake. The Nutcracker was inspired by the German legend "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King."
Dawn Fisher from the Iowa Great Lakes spoke highly of AMB’s take on the Nutcracker and said, “It’s a magical show to attend and a beautiful opportunity for youth to dance alongside a professional ballet company. It is an experience they will remember forever. Even now, it’s still fun to hear the kids talk about ‘when I was an angel, an elf, or a soldier.’ It’s such a magical experience and the perfect family ballet.”
Get ready to fill your hearts with the Christmas magic, snowflakes, sweets, and sugar plum fairies in this year’s American Midwest Ballet: The Nutcracker.
