The Northern Michigan Dance Academy & The Dickinson Ballet Company present at The Braumart Theatre THIS WEEKEND on December 10th, 11th and 12th!

The Nutcracker ballet was created by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, who also created the ballet Lake, and first performed in December 1892. The Nutcracker was loosely based on E.T.A. Hoffman’s story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King about a girl who becomes friends with a nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas Eve and battles an evil Mouse King. Since 1892 The Nutcracker ballet has been adapted in many forms as well as in movies and books, but is still considered the most popular ballet production over 100 years later.

Gather up the children, come fancy or casual, and enjoy The Dickinson Ballet Company’s production of The Nutcracker this holiday season! Multiple performances all weekend! Go to to learn more!

Her dream becomes a reality.

Her passion is ignited.
