DanceWest Ballet Company presents The Nutcracker each christmas season at Pfeiffer Hall on the campus of North Central College in Naperville. The production features guest artists who have danced with companies including American Ballet Theatre and Joffrey Ballet of Chicago. All students, ages three through adult, are invited to audition for the annual performances.
The annual school performance is intended to be viewed as a presentation of the culmination of the year's learning and progress. The concert is held at the end of June and features all students. The experience, from costumes to dress rehearsals, allows the students to learn about the excitement and responsiblity of performance.
DanceWest Ballet performs pieces from its repertoire in a variety of venues. Stuents age 10 or older who are interested in performance opportunities are encouraged to audition for DanceWest Ballet and/or Inside Out Dance Company. Auditions are held in September for the upcoming year. Dancers arriving after the September audition date may audition by appointment.
