Local Ballet Partnership in San Jose: The Saratoga School of Dance
Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local California children from The Saratoga School of Dance. The Saratoga School of Dance, in the San Jose / Palo Alto Valley, provides a family oriented, child friendly, environment for students ranging in age from 16 months to adults of all ages. While the main emphasis is on age appropriate technique, this is not a competition school and equal importance is given to providing a fulfilling, fun environment for young dancers. Students are, however, well grounded in formal technique and are fully prepared to go to a competitive program should they choose.
