The Fairfax Nutcracker 2022

We invite you and the family to join us and The Fairfax Ballet, in experiencing the wonderful world of the Nutcracker this season. We begin with the Stahlbaums as they host their annual Holiday Party full of dancing, joy, and merriment. Follow Clara, their daughter, as she receives an intriguing Nutcracker from her Uncle Drosselmeyer. The party may be winding down for the party guests, but the fun is just beginning for Clara, her Nutcracker, and the whole family as we see what happens next!

Our traditional Nutcracker is sure to delight the entire family and what better way to experience the Magic of the Holidays than live performance and theatre. We hope you will join us for an afternoon of fun and joy. We'll see you there.

Develop Together

A strong student can truly flourish in an environment with purposeful and engaged teams.


We are fortunate to have such an incredibly easy to access facility that both our staff and our parents will  greatly appreciate.

Amazing Shows

One of the most remarkable parts of the love of dance is the yearly productions we have prided ourselves on for decades.


We pride ourselves on true artistic education for our students, as true art encompasses all the greatest aspects of life.
