For over thirty years, Talara Ruth has produced an annual youth Nutcracker.  Last year, 2016, we our  the tradition with an inaugural 49th St. theater performance of a Nutcracker Suite for children of all ages, performed by our own children in the CATS Dance Com and School with special professional guest  artists who trained with Talara when they were younger. 

Our Nutcracker 2017 was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who participated!  This spring 2018 we will have our annual June show of traditional classical and original contemporary choreography. Show date set for Saturday, June 9th at 5:30 pm watch this space for more information!
