The Nutcracker Ballet, a beloved holiday tradition unlike any other in the Beckley area, welcomes the Christmas season. It is a journey into history; a walk through the streets of Europe during the late 1800s. The Nutcracker is a wonderful way to begin the holiday season, bringing a feeling of joy and love to one another.

Since August of this year, dancers from across the region have prepared for the annual Nutcracker event. Dancers from Beckley Dance Theatre School begin preparing in June, practicing up to seven days a week. Students from BEST were among the dancers representing Raleigh County Schools, as well as our own 8th grade math teacher, Kelli Mays.  Ages seven to adult displayed their artistic talents of dance and drama as they performed their roles in this timeless production.

Performances were held at the Woodrow Wilson Auditorium on Thursday, November 30th to Sunday, December 3rd.  Two school shows took place for students in West Virginia counties.  There were also three public performances held over the weekend for the community.

Whether you worked behind the scenes, performed on stage, or watched from the audience, this production filled hearts with the magic of Christmas.

 

Preformers from BEST include:

Alexis Foley
Dylan Henry
Jayden Kidd
Izzy Miller
