West Hawaii Dance Theatre & Academy presents a fanciful rendition of excerpts from the holiday classic ballet The Nutcracker along with other treats from Babes in Toyland, Sleeping Beauty and Le Corsaire.  Featured artists will be students from Kona and Maui, plus guest WHDT Alumni.


Limited, socially-distanced seating will be available with a reservation. For seat reservation, email the day, time(s), and number of seats you would like to reserve to annmarie@whdt.org.

Can’t make the performance? Want to share with friends & family?

We understand the limitations that COVID has brought upon our community, so we will be recording the performance and making it available both online and on DVD so you can watch from the comfort of your own home, whether near or far.

Enjoy our performances?

Your invaluable donations go a long way to keep West Hawaii Dance Theatre in operation. This year has been full of extremes and we have done, and are continuing to do our best to keep dance in our students and our community members’ lives. Please consider a donation this holiday. Mahalo nui loa, and #keepdancing.
