Touring Productions: 2025-26

State Street Ballet goes on tour for two months every season, bringing original dance and education programs to theaters and schools around the world. With standing ovations from China to Chile, and a 90% rebooking rate, we are very proud of our past touring successes and we look forward to bringing our work to all communities, large and small.

The Nutcracker

No holiday season is complete without a trip to the theatre to see The Nutcracker! One of State Street Ballet’s most enchanting productions, this magical story is a favorite for audiences of all ages. The magnificent sets, complete with a gloriously gigantic Christmas tree, came all the way from Russia to set the backdrop for glittering snowflakes, waltzing flowers, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her enchanting castle of characters.

As always, State Street Ballet’s mission is to inspire, educate, and entertain all audiences, while deepening and broadening our reach within communities. Our production of The Nutcracker is suitable for audiences of all ages, and can include numerous local dance students from the communities we travel to on tour. Through productions like The Nutcracker, we hope to give rising young dance students an inspiring experience onstage, as well as expose hundreds of children to their first theatrical ballet experience.
