YMCA Arts Partner - Bach Tots, Performing Arts for Babies, Toddlers, and Young Children

The perfect show for the winter holidays!

The Nutcracker (in a Nutshell) takes children through the classic ballet The Nutcracker in just 30 minutes. Set to Tchaikovsky’s music, the Nutcracker Prince, the Rat King, the Snow Queen, and the Sugar Plum and all her friends make an appearance.

Please join us in making Christmas crafts before the show (30 minutes before show starts).

After the short “fuss-friendly” performance, cast members invite all children from the audience to join them on stage for a ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ interactive character dance and creativity workshop – an invitation to join in dance and imaginative play with the dancers.

Bach Tots is dedicated to offering families with babies and young children access to the arts, adding creativity, fun and inspiration to life through rich visual performance, high artistic integrity, diverse cultural experiences, in a ‘fuss-friendly setting.

Performance is approximately 25-30 minutes, plus 15-20 minutes of interactive creative play onstage with children (total of 45 minutes).
