Meet me under the Mistletoes (Livestream)


MEET ME UNDER THE MISTLETOES


PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS LINK. SUPPORT THE ARTS!



For many people, packing into theatres to see live productions like The Nutcracker, is a beloved annual tradition. Each October, Tuzer Ballet Company dancers and Tuzer Dance School students start the intensive rehearsal period and love and enjoy the buildup and excitement to share this glorious holiday production.

Due to the world pandemic situation, we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the live performances to protect the safety and well being of our dancers and audiences. We dream to see you all once again LIVE on the stage, once these challenging times return to some shape of normalcy.

Because of you, we are looking forward to creating art and dance – whatever it takes.

To nurture our dancers and students.

To continue the joy of dance and share with others.

Over the last couple months, with all safety precautions in place, we have put together a wonderful performance, Meet Me Under the Mistletoes. It is a blend of holiday infused dances like Pat Tuzer’s premiere of  Ring-Ting_Tingling-Too and some creative recreations of Mr. Tuzer’s pieces such as Moon Jellyfish. We will present excerpts from renowned classical ballets such as Swan Lake and Le Corsaire. Olivia Rehrman Davis has created a new compelling contemporary piece, Blue Midnight,  that will keep you exhilarated and inspired. Our Junior Company will perform a circus piece and there are several other selections that will be danced for you.

It is an exciting blend of classical dance, contemporary selections and pure fun.

Please join us, as there is no better place to be this holiday season than right there in your living room and watching Tuzer Ballet. Get into the Yuletide spirit and help keep dance and Tuzer Ballet alive.
