The Nutcracker is the most widely performed ballet in the world and has been a festive holiday tradition for many years. It was first performed in the United States in 1944. Blue Springs Ballet brings the classic tale of toy soldiers, dancing snowflakes, little Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy to life.

The mission of the Blue Springs Ballet Company, which has been in existence since 1992, is to provide all students with the skills and knowledge they need to enjoy and appreciate dance and theater for a lifetime. Melissa Morris is the Director of Blue Springs Ballet, Inc. and has been teaching in the area since 1982.

Friends of the Blue Springs Ballet is a non-profit organization that supports the Blue Springs Ballet, promotes cultural awareness in the community and provides scholarships to company members for dance workshops with renowned ballet companies including Joffrey Ballet and the American Ballet Theatre. Membership forms to join Friends of the Blue Springs Ballet will be available at The Nutcracker performance.
