* SF Youth Ballet's Nutcracker was nominated for 6th Annual Goldstar National Nutcracker Award

This magical, full-length version of The Nutcracker features Bernadette Torres and Carlo DiDio, former principal dancers from California Ballet Company, other bay area dancers and the students from San Francisco Youth Ballet.

The dance tells the story of young Clara, who dreams that her gift of a toy nutcracker soldier comes to life. Together they experience a grand adventure that takes them through an epic battle with the Mouse King to the Sugar Plum Fairy's magical Kingdom of Sweets. This 2-hour production is geared toward families and is a perfect opportunity to introduce young children to this holiday ballet tradition.

The first 200 children will go home with a Nutcracker gift and there will be photo opportunities with different characters after performances.
