Abbotsford teen to perform in national production of The Nutcracker

Anna Neudorf selected to dance in Toronto with National Ballet School

An Abbotsford teen is performing in the National Ballet of Canada’s The Nutcracker in Toronto this month.

Anna Neudorf, 13, auditioned and was selected for the full-time professional ballet program at Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) this past summer and began full-time training in Toronto in September.

Some students from NBS perform with the National Ballet of Canada’s The Nutcracker each December.

Neudorf was selected for the lead girl role of Marie – the girl who receives the Nutcracker – and will be in four performances with the company.

She attended MEI Middle School and trained in the Pre-Professional Academy at Fraser Valley Academy of Dance prior to joining NBS.

The production plays at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto from Dec. 8 to 30.
