In the News: Alston Blogs about Nutcracker 1776!

Above is a video of our newest year-round student Alston for our Rock Dance Project, a scholarship contest launching on Facebook next week!

Alston has joined us for our Summer Ballet Intensive in the past, but since she is now a year-round student, this year will be Alston’s first Nutcracker 1776 performance with The Rock School. She’s blogged about her experiences leading up to this weekend’s first round of performances at Merriam Theater.
