About the TCU Place Arts & Convention Centre

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Saskatoon! TCU Place Arts & Convention Centre originally opened as the Saskatoon Centennial Auditorium in 1968; the venue was renamed in 2006 as part of a major renovation project funded by TCU Financial. TCU Place features multi-purpose rooms that host banquets, conferences, and tradeshows, as well as the Sid Buckwold Theatre, which hosts theatrical and dance performers and productions, speakers, and more.

Saskatoon Ballet Partnership: Dance in the Prairies School of Ballet

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Saskatoon children from Dance in the Prairies School of Ballet. Dance in the Prairies School of Ballet (DPSB) is like no other in Saskatoon as it is a non-competitive, pre-professional performance based school. DPSB takes dancers back to the basics of classical ballet. The main goal of the school is to produce properly trained technical dancers and to give youth from ages 3-18 the confidence and courage that in many cases gets left behind.  School is a place for dancers to come and learn not only ballet but modern dance and a wide range of genres. The genre classes offer many styles and disciplines that are not usually offered in one location, such as ballroom and flamenco. DPSB is a school to educate what dance is, while teaching youth respect and discipline for others in the community and the world.
