Centennial Youth Ballet presents The Mini-Nutcracker

Tickets go on sale to the public through Brown Paper Tickets on Monday, October 30 at 10 a.m.

Centennial Youth Ballet's Mini-Nutcracker brings to life a young girl's Christmas dream. Swirling snowflakes, waltzing flowers, dancing bon bons and giant mice battling miniature soldiers will transport the audience to a world of entrancing fantasy.

Designed to introduce children to ballet as performance art, The Mini-Nutcracker is an abbreviated, narrated version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite Ballet. Centennial Youth Ballet's accomplished dancers perform with poise, precision and polish. Lavish sets and beautiful costumes enhance the classical movement and spectacular staging.

The Mini-Nutcracker offers Nashville families the opportunity to begin the holiday season in exhilarating style.
