Dance company Diavolo has developed a reputation for its athletic, acrobatic, dramatic movement on larger-than-life, surrealistic sets and structures. These internationally renowned performers are more than just dancers -- they're gymnasts, actors and athletes who rely on teamwork as well as skill. Under the guidance of artistic director Jacques Heim, they investigate the relationship between humans and the architectural environment and the ways in which these urban structures affect us socially, emotionally and physically. Spoken word artist Steve Connell brings voice to the ideas presented by Diavolo. Learn More

This was a lot like college football, vs. pro ball, for me. More exciting, more little things that almost went wrong, and you could see the work these people had put into the production more. Not as polished as some Nutcrackers I have seen, but so much heart! This was an unexpected delight. Thank you.
There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than to share the magic of Clara and her Nutcracker! Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center’s production of The Nutcracker is a delightful, family-friendly version of the traditional holiday ballet.
This year’s production comes complete with all-new choreography, and guest artists April McLeod and Sven Toorvald as the Sugarplum Fairy and her Cavalier, Patrick Loyd as the Nutcracker Prince, Ben Gleichauf as the Mouse King, and Jerry Kokich as Drosselmeyer. Other featured performers are members of the Ballet Petit Performing Arts Center Ballet Companies, with students from the Performing Arts Center filling out the ensemble.
