Ann Brodie's Carolina Ballet Presents "The Nutcracker"
November 22, 2017 - November 26, 2017
Carolina Ballet, founded by South Carolina dance legend Ann Brodie (who also founded Columbia City Ballet) in 1988, is a true civic company - one that welcomes all of the community's dancers. The production of "The Nutcracker," coordinated, directed, & presented by CMFA over Thanksgiving weekend, attracts audiences from throughout the country. It is a tradition for many families & part of a destination package for early holiday shopping or family visits. Through Carolina Ballet's apprentice program, CMFA nurtures talent, giving the community's youngest dancers the opportunity to perform in programs designed especially for them.
