Chattanooga Ballet’s Community Engagement and Outreach Program encompasses special school performances of The Nutcracker at the Tivoli Theatre and dance presentations in local schools, hospitals, and retirement communities, as well as community partnerships and free public classes and performances.

Our annual school performances of The Nutcracker are the perfect introduction for students to the world of classical music and dance. Over the past thirty years, Chattanooga Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker has been enchanting audiences of all ages. This professional production features over 220 performers, 350 dazzling costumes, and a magnificent Victorian era set.

Chattanooga Ballet’s school programs include brief performances with question and answer sessions, lecture/demonstrations, teacher residencies, and partnerships with schools to create performances with thematic focuses.
