Yes Virginia, Another Nutcracker!


Nutcracker was not a rip-roaring success at its premiere in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1892. The art critic Konstantin Skalkovsky wrote in 1899, "Generally speaking, The Nutcracker was staged mainly for children; for the dancers it contains very little; for art — exactly nothing. Even its music was rather weak. As the dance writer Anatole Chujoy pointed out later on, the Nutcracker ballet remained in the Russian repertory for over 37 years! However, even today, audiences in Russia as well as in Europe are less excited than their American counterparts about The Nutcracker. So why do Americans love this ballet? Read more

Posted on in Blog, News & Events

Special Honored Guest, Ms. Misty Copeland, Soloist with American Ballet Theatre

On Sunday, March 8, 2015, the Maple Youth Ballet will present our fourth annual Spring Gala. Hosted at the Wyndham Avenue of the Arts Hotel in Irvine, the Gala will feature a selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres, silent auction and raffle drawing, and a special performance by the Maple Youth Ballet dancers. We are thrilled to announce this year’s special honored guest, Ms. Misty Copeland, soloist with American Ballet Theatre. Guests will have the opportunity to meet this incredibly talented artist, and enjoy an interview conducted by her former ballet instructor, Mr. Charles Maple.

We invite community members to donate an item or experience to the Silent Auction or Raffle. Every dollar raised will help Maple Youth Ballet further its mission, and to provide scholarships to talented students who could not otherwise afford this opportunity. We anticipate over 200 guests will attend the Gala, and all donors will be recognized and celebrated. We appreciate your support and hope you will join us in helping keep the arts alive for our children and within our community.

Our Spring Gala is presented by Maple Youth Ballet, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization
