Dance Appreciation Series: Introduction to The Nutcracker is an hour-long special created for young audiences. It is a condensed version of the original full-length classical ballet.
The Nutcracker brings audiences on a journey of adventure and courage, and introduces familiar and well-loved characters like Clara, the Snow Queen, the Sugar Plum fairy, and her Cavalier.
Join us and learn more about the magical world of dance and ballet! There will also be a meet-and greet-session with the cast after the performance where you can take photos, so come dressed in your favourite costumes and join us.

Singapore Ballet (formerly known as Singapore Dance Theatre) was founded in 1988 by Goh Soo Khim and Anthony Then and has since grown into a premier dance company comprising 38 professional dancers and apprentices. The company produces six seasons annually, highlights of which include the widely popular outdoor dance event Ballet Under the Stars at Fort Canning Park, a selection of two full-length classics, Masterpiece in Motion, which brings together three works by international choreographers, as well as Passages, a contemporary dance showcase.
The company’s repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary ballet, with pieces created by renowned choreographers including Choo-San Goh, George Balanchine, Kinsun Chan, Val Caniparoli, Ma Cong, Edmund Stripe, Natalie Weir, Edwaard Liang, Nils Christe, Toru Shimazaki, Christina Chan, Timothy Harbour, François Klaus, Tim Rushton, Pam Tanowitz and Loughlan Prior.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director Janek Schergen, the company has made new strides in the international and Singapore dance arena, adding 38 world premieres, 20 company premieres and new productions to the repertoire.
