The Nutcracker


Hartt's 2013 Nutcracker productions were a great success! Thank you to students, parents, faculty, and our wonderful audience for making it memorable. It was the first year that the Hartt Community Division Dance Department presented a special show called the Nutty Nutcracker, which was a wildly comical interpretation the classic ballet.

The Hartt School Community Division has been bringing dance performances to the families and community of the Greater Hartford region for years. Each holiday season, HCD’s fully staged production of Tchaikovsky’s time-honored classic with staging again by Artistic Director Dunster, transports the audience to a magical world. It's a wonderful opportunity to see young artists perform a full-length ballet laced with humor, bravery, and sensitivity and it is guaranteed to ignite the child within all of us and invoke the warmth of the holiday season.
