Head over to the Mercy High School Theatre on Saturday, December 14 or Sunday, December 15 to see The San Francisco Youth Ballet Academy's performance of The Nutcracker. This charming, full length version also features Bernadette Torres, Carlo DiDio, former Principals California Ballet Company, Antonio DelGado (California Ballet Company) Brooke Gunn (Joffrey Trainee), and dancers from SF Conservatory of Dance & New West Ballet, San Diego.
This classic performance tells the story of a young woman, Clara. It follows her journey as she dreams about her gift of a toy nutcracker coming to life.
This family friendly two-hour production is the perfect way to introduce young children to this holiday ballet tradition. As a special offer, the first 200 children will go home with a cute Nutcracker gift bag. This is a thank you from us to you and a way to spread the holiday joy!
After the performances, you can also stay for a while and take pictures with the different characters from the performance. It’s a great way to learn more about the program as well as The San Francisco Youth Ballet Academy.
