Each December Northwest Dance Theatre presents its annual holiday production of A Nutcracker Tea, a family-friendly adaptation of the holiday story that follows Clara and her Nutcracker Prince on a heartwarming journey through the Snow Kingdom and Land of Sweets. Paired with NWDT’s beautifully crafted sets and costumes, June Taylor-Dixon’s choreography creates the perfect holiday tradition and first-time ballet experience for family and friends of all ages. This charming production continues to warm the hearts of all ages as a holiday family tradition. In December of 2016, NWDT dancers performed seven sold-out shows and two outreach programs. It was a magical experience for all NWDT dancers, directors, members, volunteers, and community patrons to share, give, and receive the beauty and power of dance.

Spring Mixed-Bill Program 2018

April 14 at 7pm and April 15 at 2pm

Each year NWDT presents a family-friendly spring production with something special to offer everyone. This annual program appeals to all ages. For NWDT’s young artists, this spring program is a wonderful opportunity to learn new styles of movement, expand their understanding of dance as a performance art, and share their passion and versatility with the community. With this sense of exploration and discovery, the spring mixed-bill program makes the richness of this art form tangible by creating a bridge between the classical and the contemporary for all ages to enjoy.

Stay tuned for program and ticket information to come! And in the meantime, enjoy this little snapshot of our 2017 spring show in rehearsal:

Each year NWDT presents a family-friendly spring production with something special to offer everyone. This past spring we were thrilled to present an exciting new mixed-bill program: A Festival of DancePacked with captivating and innovative works by several seasoned choreographers, A Festival of Dance showcased the finesse, talent, and versatility of NWDT dancers at their best.

As a mixed-bill production, A Festival of Dance featured the betrothal scene from “La  Bayadere” with original choreography by Marius Petipa, a world premiere of “Blue Note Suite” choreographed by Laura Haney and Maria Tucker, ethnic works by Leonid Shagalov of the San Francisco Ballet School, plus works by M’liss Stephenson and Erin Zintek. Once again, we invited The MAC Company Dancers to return as our guest artists, who are always guaranteed to provide a dynamic contribution to our production.
