About the event
The Nutcracker Education Experience is a collaboration between Florida Dance Theatre (FDT), local schools, and our community, all with one special mission: to share the magic of the arts with children. Together, they’re dedicated to providing students with an immersive dance program, centered around the enchanting Nutcracker ballet. FDT’s program isn't just about dancing; it's about lighting up young hearts with the beauty of the arts, and it aims to boost their dance skills, create unique mentorship opportunities, promote health and well-being through the joy of dance, and finally, give them the unforgettable experience of performing alongside FDT's professional company.
Even more wonderful, a portion of the proceeds from this initiative will be reinvested in participating schools to support their summer programs and provide more opportunities for children to explore the world of the arts.
We are now reaching out to dedicated EMERGE Volunteers to be a part of this magical journey and assist during live performances for the talented children of Rochelle School of the Arts and Florida Dance Theatre. By volunteering for this event, you become an essential part of sharing the arts with the next generation. As a volunteer, you'll be helping with various tasks, from managing the box office operations (selling tickets and distributing reserved seats) to collecting tickets, handing out programs, and even setting up and running the concessions (offering fantastic event merchandise).
So, mark your calendars for December 2, 2023, a day filled with joy and inspiration.
The FDT Nutcracker School performances will take place at Rochelle School for The Arts in Lakeland, with two shortened Nutcracker performances, each lasting a 1 hour and 12 minutes, at 3pm and 7:30pm (that's two amazing shows!). As a volunteer, you'll need to arrive one hour before the performances to be part of the enchantment and help FDT share the arts with these bright young minds. Join EMERGE Volunteers, and let's light up their world with the magic of the arts!
