A true winter tradition in Mission, Artistic Director John C. Carney returns with the Fraser Valley Academy of Dance for its 13th season to the Clarke Theatre on December 11, 2021 to present his newly-modified reduced-for-safety choreography of the Nutcracker ballet.

Having danced many roles in the Nutcracker with English National Ballet every winter season in London during his many years with the company, Mr. Carney brings an in-depth professional knowledge of this full-length classical ballet to this local stage. 

For 2021, the Nutcracker Re:Imagined offers a streamlined one-act ballet with everyone’s favourite dances of the Nutcracker.  Follow Clara into her dream with the mysterious Drosselmeyer, through Snowflakes and across the serene Ocean to the Kingdom of Sweets, where she is presented with the colourful and exciting dances of the Candy Canes, Arabian, Spanish, Chinese, Smarties and Russian accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s imaginative score.

Following the magic of Nutcracker Re:Imagined, our audience will be enchanted by the inspirational acrobatic presentation of Polaris by Mission’s own circus school, Triumph Acrobatic Arts.  With silks and trampolines and awe-inspiring acts in a winter wonderland, we have the ideal partners for our new Re:imagined winter production!

All the family will enjoy the magic of this traditional (now Re:Imagined) winter presentation!
