A Sensory Friendly Performance

December 11 - 2:00pm

The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet

Irving Arts Center

Choreographer: Nicolina Lawson


Artistic Director Nicolina Lawson’s beautiful staging of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker will warm your heart and fill you and yours with the spirit of the holidays. This year’s production will be shortened to one act but will still include all of the favorite characters from the dancing snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets.


Get your tickets early to this grand holiday event. This Short & Sweet version is a great opportunity to introduce little ones or any ballet newcomers to live performance.


The show will go on for Ballet North Texas, yet we will closely follow the rules set forth by the Irving Arts Center. If you are attending The Nutcracker: Short & Sweet, please be aware of the COVID-19 safety protocol. Also follow Ballet North Texas on social media for updates.
