Performance Opportunity: Nantucket Ballet students perform at least twice per year. The fall session culminates in an annual Nutcracker and the Spring Session ends with a recital at the Dreamland Theater. Select Nantucket Ballet Dancers have performed at the NHA’s Night of Holiday Magic. Performance opportunities are essential for young dancers to express their artistry and show what they’ve learned over the course of the semester.
