Nutcracker Ballet Excerpts Performed December 15

 

From the San Leandro Public Library -

The San Leandro Public Library will host a special free performance of excerpts from the Nutcracker performed by the Conservatory of Classical Ballet  on December 15 from 2 to 3 p.m.

The Conservatory of Classical Ballet of San Leandro was founded in 2001 by Director Ann Fisher, who was a Director of the Berkeley Ballet Theater and also danced for the Oakland Ballet Theater. Her students have gone on to have professional careers as dancers, teachers and company directors. The student showcase will display the talents of the conservatory’s students, who range from 10-year-olds to adults, while performing excerpts from the classic ballet of  The Nutcracker Ballet.

The showcase will be held in San Leandro Main Library’s beautiful Carnegie Lecture Hall and Theater, located at 300 Estudillo Avenue in downtown San Leandro. 

Admission is free, but seating is limited. This event is not suggested for children age 3 and under due to the program's long duration. Doors will immediately close when theater reaches maximum occupancy.

For more information, call the Library Information Desk at 510- 577-3971.

You can see a fascinating You Tube video that was produced by the Dance TV Channel about the history of The Nutcracker Ballet and how it came to be a holiday staple around the world here.
