Dear Virtual Yorkville Nutcrackers!
Thank you so much for joining us these past two weekends with Maureen Duke, Day Mitchell, and Sasha Reyser! Your spirit was so amazing.
We have more exciting opportunities for you starting this Sunday, November 1 at 10:00 AM EST. Lead Mice! These are the mice that come out right before the tree begins to grow. We call them Hungry, Itchy, and Stinky and you can be one of them this year!
We have also heard from you and we know you are looking for something a tiny bit more challenging. So we are offering the Waltz of the Flowers! on Sunday, November 1 at 11:00 AM EST. Maybe this is the role you never got to do. Or maybe you haven't got that far yet. Whatever your reasons, this is the class for you. Sasha Reyser will be teaching and everyone is invited. It will be fun, challenging, and fun. Did we mention fun? Scroll down for Zoom tickets.
As an additional benefit, we have shared with you two videos we were using for learning the choreography. We encourage all to learn as many roles as you like, from the safety of your own home. Give Mice! a try, Waltz with the Flowers, even live out your dream of being the Sugarplum, where Abi Stafford is going to lead two classes focusing on the art and joy of the Sugarplum Fairy.
Francis Patrelle promises to look in on every class - encouraging, offering insights, and joining in the fun! Each role will get two full sessions for just $35*, or one session for $18. Every class you attend brings Dances Patrelle that much closer to reaching its goal of returning The Yorkville Nutcracker to the live stage in 2021! Thanks so much in advance for your support. We are in this together. And we will continue to get through this together.
