Storyline

Every Christmas season, The Nutcracker Ballet is performed in cities all over the world. What does it really take to produce this ballet each year? Our documentary film, Getting to The Nutcracker, takes you inside the Herculean effort involved in gathering the resources, assembling the volunteers, casting the dancers, rehearsing and staging the performances of this classic ballet. Los Angeles-based Marat Daukayev School of Ballet, led by the former Kirov star, takes you behind the curtain from auditions, the rigorous hours of rehearsals, the joy of landing a principal role to the pain of losing one. The dancers (boys and girls ages 3-18) are profiled; passionate people who, with their families, make incredible sacrifices of time and money just so that they may dance. Written by Anonymous

Loved this heartwarming film
13 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie at the Kansas International Film Festival yesterday. I was smiling from the start and I also had tears in my eyes when we saw fathers of ballet dancers in training to dance in the production. They thought all they would do is mill around the stage but their moves were choreographed and had to be learned. The film got a bit long during the scenes of the actual performance, but when Luis came on I forgot I was ready for it to be over. Luis was in the audience and his story is one of the special ones in the movie. Along with the 7-year-old boy who had to leave the school when he moved to Beijing. He got to return to perform and cried when he had to leave his friends and fellow students to return home. Loved this movie and want to see it again.
