After performances on the road in Pike Road and Greenville, Montgomery Ballet is more than warmed up and ready for next’s week’s holiday extravaganza at home — their 51st annual “Nutcracker” performance at the Montgomery Performing Arts Centre.

The road to the Dec. 14 show has been full of holiday magic.

“We’re pretty much all in the Christmas spirit here more than normal, here in our new home on Fairview Avenue,” said Danny Mitsios, artistic and executive director for Montgomery Ballet. In fact, he said they’re “knee deep” in the spirit of the season.

“We’re joining a lot of the organizations that are becoming the cultural identity of Montgomery,” Mitsios said. “It’s exciting.”

From their new studio’s window, he and the Cloverdale neighborhood community are seeing a really positive vibe from the company dancers, who have a couple of new additions this year. He’s proud of how well the company’s recent Ballet and the Beasts at the Montgomery Zoo was received this fall, and with Montgomery Ballet’s recognition from the Montgomery Area Business Committee for the Arts (MABCA).

“It’s a really nice group that gels well together,” Mitsios said of his company’s professional troupe. “They’re really team players, and it makes my life a little easier.”

Their effort is taking shape. Mitsios, who is in his sixth year of “Nutcracker” with Montgomery Ballet, said Pike Road’s performance sold out. When shows began there a few years ago, the audience was very small.

“The more people came, the more people kept returning… We’re to a place right now in Pike Road where we’ve got to decide if we’re going to keep it (to one day), or if we’re going to extend it to a two-day run,” Mitsios said. “It’s exciting that the community is embracing us to that extent.”
