The Nutcracker, Our tradition
Two standing ovations for two amazing performances!! Bravo Fleet-Wood Dance Company
Fleet-Wood Dancentre, School of Dance opened in 1994 The oldest School of Dance in the area, and continuing to offer the best training in the Georgian Triangle. Highly trained professional staff offer classes in Cecchetti Ballet, modern, jazz, contemporary, tap, acro, competitions, ballet exams and yearly recital.
Whether your child wants to just dance for fun once or week, or train with serious intentions to a professional goal, we have the classes for you. In September of 2015 Camille Paget was accepted by audition to Canada’s Quinte Ballet School for Professional Training. We are very proud of Camille’s accomplishment.
We are also very proud of our “family friendly feel” at Fleet-Wood Dancentre as shown in our happy students. A live video feed allows parents to watch classes from our reception and Art Gallery within 65 Simcoe Street.
THE NUTCRACKER: TRADITION! December 17, 2017 Meaford Hall
Fleet-Wood is proud to present The Nutcracker every two years with students of the Fleet-Wood Dance Company and professional staff and alumni. Meaford hall showcased two sold out performances ending with standing ovations. Dancers from five years to adult showed off four months of hard work.
THE NUTCRACKER SCHOOL TOURS! TRADITION!
Dancers launched the production by performing at six local schools before hundreds of children who also got to join in making sound affects. Some boys got to try their best marching!!
RIGHT OF PASSAGE: TRADITION!
Teda Froentejis first performed The Nutcracker at the age of 7, but on the 12th of December she took the stage as The Sugar Plum Fairy at 17. Many Fleet-Wood students have enjoyed this “right of passage” and enjoy dancing all the different roles through their years at Fleet-Wood.
CHRISTMAS LIVING WINDOWS: Tradition!!
Every year dancers enjoy performing mini ballets in the store front windows of Historic Downtown Collingwood. Dressed in the beautiful costumes of The Nutcracker, dancers perform in decorated Christmas Windows, and when the snow is also falling, there is nothing more magical!!
