Apex Arts League Presents Avant Chamber Ballet Returning With Nutcracker

Apex Arts League and the Avant Chamber Ballet present the holiday classic, Nutcracker: Short and Suite in Southlake with a cast of professional dancers and live music.

This season’s production is a family-friendly, one-hour holiday celebration with all your favorite characters!

“Each year we update and refresh the production with little changes to the choreography and costumes,” says Artistic Director Katie Cooper. “It doesn’t seem like the holidays without Nutcracker but it’s great to be able to something a little bit different. We skip some of the storytelling sections and focus on everyone’s favorite dancing which makes it an easier and shorter production for kids in the audience, too.”

The performance is presented by Apex Arts League who brings top level arts group such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Symphony to Southlake. It is made possible through the support of Arts Council Northeast.

Tickets are available online or at the door. Ticket prices are $20 Adult or $15 Seniors, Students and Apex Members.
