It was an incredible Nutcracker season! Our dancers were amazing and we truly appreciate all the help we received behind the scenes, both before and after the show, from the parents and families of these amazing dancers!
If you were not able to make the show, or just want to watch it again, the following is a link to Digital Video Productions: http://dvphd.com/dvp_contactus.html. They were at the show on Sunday to film and will have DVD’s available soon. You can reach out to them about ordering a copy. You can also contact Arizona Youth Ballet for an order form. What a wonderful way to pass the year before next year’s Nutcracker!
Pictures from our latest performance, Giselle, are now available on our Performace Pics page.
