This weekend, the White Mountain and Northern New Hampshire community will gather to watch the Sugarplum Fairy, Uncle Drosselmeyer and the King Mouse in Creative Edge Dance Studio’s (CEDS) annual performance of Clara’s Nutcracker. With snowflakes in the air and and a blanket of snow on the ground, this performance marks the School’s unofficial start to the winter and holiday season. Every year, the performance sells out, and I imagine this year will be no exception.
This performance is not just one full of glitz and glamour or one meant to just bring the White Mountain community together. For White Mountain dancers, it is a lot more than that. It is a chance to be a part of a larger performance. CEDS produces two full length ballets each year and a recital in May.

At White Mountain, we pride ourselves on being a small school with big opportunities, and the arts program here offers just that! Whether they’ve been dancing for ten years or two months, dance students have the chance to participate in regional performances and competitions. Visual art students can showcase their work at a local gallery and have it critiqued by professional artists. Parents and visitors can also see student artwork displayed throughout campus. Because of our small size, student work is regularly seen and recognized. Here, it is hard to ‘sit on the sidelines’.
