The Nutcracker

Weehawken Dance Presents Beloved Holiday Nutcracker Ballet at Montrose Pavilion on Dec 9 at 2 pm and 6 pm & Dec 10 at 2 pm

Talented local dancers from Ouray County, Montrose, Cedaredge, Paonia and beyond usher in the holiday season at the Montrose Pavilion with 3 performances on Dec. 9 and 10, in Weehawken Dance’s enchanting annual production of The Nutcracker.  

Under the artistic direction of Natasha Pyeatte, Weehawken's shows have become an eagerly-anticipated Christmas tradition in the region over the past eight years. Weehawken's Nutcracker presents highlights from Tchaikovsky's traditional Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker, and will feature over 200 dancers (ages 2.5 through adult), in a production that is as lavish as Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece, itself.  From the Waltz of the Snowflakes to the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, every scene glitters with its own dreamy radiance, reflecting Pyeatte’s talent, vision, and boundless energy as a teacher and choreographer.

This will be the seventh year of Weehawken Dance offering their fall productions at the Montrose Pavilion, after incredible turnout of audiences since 2011.  “We were thrilled with the experiences we have had at the Montrose Pavilion as they have offered us an opportunity to house more dancers backstage, increase technical elements of the show and also increase the quality and quantity of stage pieces and props.  These shifts make the productions all that more enjoyable and enchanting for the audience.” said Ashley King, Executive Director of Weehawken Creative Arts.   “In addition, we love the experience that the Pavilion provides with a large stage and backstage which serves to inspire young dancers who get to actually watch as their older peers perform on stage.”

Performances of The Nutcracker are to be held at the Montrose Pavilion on Dec. 9 at 2 pm and 6 pm and December 10 at 2 pm. General admission tickets will be available online at weehawkenarts.org, over the phone at (970)318-0150 and in person at Tiffany, Etc. in Montrose. Reserved seating tickets are available ONLY by phone at (970) 318-0150.
