33rd Annual Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet Nutcracker
On December 2 & 3, 2017, McLean’s Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet will stage its 33rd annual Nutcracker performance at the George Mason High School. In addition to the youth students ranging in age from 3 to 18, there are adult students and several international guest artists appearing in the performances. The Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet trains in classical Russian style ballet. This is a true family cultural tradition right in our own backyard, and not to be missed!
As an educational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet depends on fundraising in order to help offset the costs of staging its performances. KMAB's mission is to entertain, educate, inspire, and engage people through the powerful vehicle of classical ballet in the Russian tradition, while also promoting the advancement of young and experienced ballet artists. Each year, the Artistic Directors painstakingly choreograph and produce two full ballet performances, including the Nutcracker in December and an original choreographed spring performance, and provide the highest quality professional training year-round. Additionally, KMAB participates in a variety of community events to help further a greater appreciation and understanding of the classical ballet art form.
