The expenses for rehearsing and filming a performance are equivalent to those for a live show, and The Nutcracker has always been an indispensable fundraiser for the Frankfort School of Ballet. In a year that has been financially difficult for all of us, this is an especially painful hit. We have been honored by and grateful for your continued patronage, and now we need your generous financial support so that we can continue to offer the highest quality dance experiences to our community, both virtually and in-person.

Gale Force Dance, along with the Frankfort School of Ballet, present a beloved holiday tradition for the whole family--live and in-person with social distancing and safety precautions. In FSB's The Nutcracker, we are invited to a beautiful Victorian Christmas celebration at the home of a sweet little girl named Clara. When the party ends, the magic begins, and friends from around the world bring sweet sights and delights. Gale Force Dance is a professional performance company on the Kentucky Arts Council's prestigious Performing Artists Directory. Frankfort School of Ballet is a family-centered studio filled with happy dance students age 18 months through adult.
