Nutcracker & Ballerina

A charming walkabout act with a fun new twist on the immortal Christmas ballet. Stilt-walking and ballet combine in this unique piece of street theatre.

High on his stilts, the Nutcracker controls a marionette ballerina in a delightful duet. Perfect as a walkabout act at your Christmas event, the Nutcracker and the Ballerina can’t wait to meet your crowd and attract ballet lovers of all ages.

Like any stilt walker, the Nutcracker rises high above the crowd, showing your visitors where it’s happening and encouraging others to join in. At the end of his strings, his toy ballerina dances joyfully, thrilled that he’s brought her to life. 

Your visitors will love the Christmas magic that sparkles out of this unique roving act. In the run up to switching on the lights or welcoming Santa, this interactive walkabout is a fun way to keep everyone entertained. As the Nutcracker and the Ballerina rove your venue, they’ll share their Christmas energy with your guests, making the event one to remember. 

The Nutcracker is an experienced stilt walker, strolling round your event on his exceptionally long legs. At the end of his puppet strings is his toy ballerina friend, performing beautifully choreographed routines to delight your visitors. 

Part of the magic of this performance comes from the professionally-designed costumes, with beautiful attention to detail. Look out for the fake fur keeping the performers warm at outdoor events!

The Nutcracker and the Ballerina are ideal for seasonal public events. Book them Christmas markets, frost fayres, Christmas light switch-ons and more. As a walkabout act, they’ll interact with your visitors – always an eye-catching, memory-making photo opportunity.
