Dear DWPA Dance Families,

Due to the continuing realities of the pandemic, the restrictions and uncertainty coming from outside factors, we would like to update you on our decision to cancel our 2021 Nutcracker show. We will not hold Nutcracker auditions this Saturday, September 25th.This was not a decision we took lightly.

Our Nutcracker performance venue is a high school operated by Vancouver Public Schools (VPS). Due to the sharp rise in cases in Clark County, the VPS is not committing to any outside reservations. VPS conducts a two week review of our local statistics to decide whether or not it is safe to rent out their schools as venues to outside organizations.

This review process subjects our dancers, teachers, and parents, to a great deal of uncertainty. Essentially, even if VPS did initially commit to a reservation for Nutcracker, we could have our reserved venue cancelled at any time in the next 3 months. We are saddened that we are unable to offer our dancers the opportunity to perform The Nutcracker for the 2021 season. We are hoping for a brighter, safer future for the 2022 Nutcracker season.  Our parents and dancers safety continue to be the number one priority at DanceWorks. Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

DWPA & Friends of DanceWorks Board of Directors
