Producing and presenting "The Nutcracker" ballet  for the very first time in 2010 was a dream come true for Rachel Tan, Director of Rachel's Ballet. Each year since 2010, we have been invited back by the Temple Hill Cultural Arts Committee to perform our FREE full-length Nutcracker ballet.  The Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra often provides live music for our ballet. All performances have been "sold out" each year. Read more about Rachel Tan and her "Nutcracker" ballet gift to the community: "Gift from a Dancer"  - Tri-City Voice

* These free community outreach  performances are made possible by the generosity of Rachel Tan, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Temple Hill Cultural Arts Committee, Temple Hill Public Affairs Committee, Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra), and donations.
