Nutcracker Dress Rehearsal Schedule

Please see the detailed scheduled for your dancers Dress Rehearsal times on Saturday, December 4th (at CDA) and Wednesday, December 8th (at Lincoln Center) as well as their call times for the theatre.  We will be sending out more detailed information to specific classes soon on hair/makeup, where to check in/out, etc.  Please note that unless previously communicated, these two Dress Rehearsals are mandatory in order to participate in the performance.

Download Detailed Schedule


  • All dancers will be performing in all 3 shows! We were able to rent out the big Columbine Ballroom to allow for more room backstage, so all dancers should plan on performing both Friday night, as well as both shows Saturday!
  • COVID Protocols: A lot of you have asked what the COVID protocols are for backstage at Lincoln Center.  As of now, dancers will be asked to wear masks backstage.  They will be able to take them off while performing and will be asked to put them on again when they leave the stage.  All staff and patrons will be required to wear masks due to the current mandate.

Mandatory Full Cast Dress Rehearsal at Lincoln Center, ALL cast members must attend!

Call Time: 30 minutes prior to the start of your dancers on stage rehearsal time- Sign dancers in at their assigned room door (1 or 2) of The Lincoln Center (Details sent out in your individual class email). They will then be escorted to their dressing room where they will immediately change into costume and taken to stage.  Dancers can be picked up at the end of their rehearsal time.  For example, if your dancer is a “Drosselmeyer Doll” in Act 1 Party Scene, they need to be checked in by 4pm, and can be picked up at 5:30pm.  PLEASE NOTE:  WE DO OUR BEST TO STAY ON SCHEDULE BUT THINGS HAPPEN THAT ARE OUT OF OUR CONTROL.  OUR HOPE IS TO GET DANCERS AGES 5-8 OUT OF THE THEATRE BY 8:30PM!
