Nutcracker Dance Party for Kids!

Have you always wanted to dance with the Sugarplum Fairies, or to glide to the soaring strings in the pas de deux? Now is your chance! EXO is building on its famous Rite of Spring Dance Party, inviting you to immerse yourself in the heart of the sound with to a Nutcracker Dance Party!

Both the adult-only (Thursday, November 30 at 8pm) and the family-friendly (Saturday, December 2 at 2:30pm) version of the concert offer an opportunity to get up close with the orchestra and dance to your heart’s desire. The Thursday, November 30th concert offers a ticket package where you can sit INSIDE the orchestra, experiencing the music from within. Seasonal libations will be offered to further encourage carefree dancing.
No ballet experience is necessary for this dance party, and if you would rather not dance, there are seats available either inside the orchestra, where the sound will surround you and embrace you in true EXO style, or off to the sides (if you'd prefer to be like Marie in the second act).

Holiday-themed attire and ballet costumes are welcome!
