This Year’s ‘Nutcracker’ Kids: Taller, Older and Savoring It All
They need to be at least 12. They need to be vaccinated. And they need new costumes. But what they don’t need to be? Short.
If the kids in New York City Ballet’s production of “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” look more like teenagers this season, it’s because in many cases they are. When rehearsals began this fall, vaccinations were open only to those 12 and older. Normally 12 is the upper cutoff age for participation — meaning the kind of 12 that can pass for 11. Little.
Size is an issue. Ordinarily, the children picked for the production from the company-affiliated School of American Ballet top out at around 5 feet 1 inches tall. What will it look like when a giant Mouse faces off with a Soldier who’s 5 feet 7? (Hopefully still hilarious.) For Dena Abergel, City Ballet’s children’s repertory director, the height requirement can be a source of anguish.
“The heartbreaking part for me is always when I have to reject an 11 year old who’s 5 feet 4 because there’s no costume that’s going to fit,” she said. “A wonderful thing was that I didn’t reject anyone from S.A.B. Everyone who came to the casting day was cast — everyone. People who were taller than me were cast.” (Abergel is just under 5 feet 7.)
And then there is the age factor. Noah Schindler, 13, thought his “Nutcracker” days were over, but this season he will return to the party scene. “Even though I’ve done this part and I remember a lot of it, I’m taking notes on every scene,” he said. “I’m just, like, trying to live it all because this is probably my last time, and I want to savor it all.”
This year’s “Nutcracker” may not look tremendously different to the casual viewer, but it will be different. In order to stay as safe as possible while having the show go on, the company — and the Balanchine Trust — had to bend the rules.
Mirra Andersen, from Waunakee, Wis., is both tall (5 feet 7), and 15. She’s never even seen the production live. Until this year, she had only attended summer courses at the School of American Ballet; now she is a full-time student. “Unless I receive a position with City Ballet, this was my one opportunity,” she said of performing in the production. “I was very excited.”
But it wasn’t an immediate yes: Andersen lives in the residence hall, which closes for two weeks for the holidays. She, along with seven others, will skip holidays at home to stay in a hotel near Lincoln Center with a parent or guardian.
“It was actually probably the only downside of doing ‘Nutcracker,’” she said, “but I decided it’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”
She will play a Soldier and a Candy Cane. So will her classmate Ayana Stampley, 14, whose last “Nutcracker” was in 2018. Stampley’s a veteran: Over the years, she’s been a Candy Cane, a Polichinelle, a Mouse, a Soldier and an Angel. At this point, she’s also 5 feet 7. And though she knew the criteria were different this year, she didn’t exactly believe it. At the last minute, she skipped the audition.
“I just wasn’t sure how tall they were willing to go,” she said. “I was kind of scared that if I were to go, they would tell me that I couldn’t get cast, and I’d just be really heartbroken. I didn’t want to go through that.”
When City Ballet contacted her parents to see why she had missed the audition and explained that height was not an issue, Stampley was cast — and she’s thrilled about it. “Before, I didn’t really know how big of a deal it was,” she said. “Now that I’m coming back, I’ll definitely just take all of it in and be in the moment.”
Getting “The Nutcracker” back onstage, though necessary for the financial well being of the company — in a typical year it brings in about 45 percent of City Ballet’s box office revenue — has not been easy. When rehearsals started in fall, there was still uncertainty about the city’s reopening and what the next few months would look like. The company’s artistic director, Jonathan Stafford, said there were many possible “Nutcracker” scenarios, including cutting most of the children or having none at all. Other ideas were to present only the second act or use a filmed version for part of the production.
“We were determined after missing one year for the first time ever since ‘Nutcracker’ opened,” Stafford said, “to bring it back to the stage, whatever we had to do. We’ve gotten to a place where the production is really going to look very similar to the one that everybody knows and loves.”
In the end only six roles were cut: four soldiers and two teenagers in the party scene. But the number of children participating has decreased, too, both for safety — to reduce the amount of people involved — and because there weren’t as many eligible young dancers. Normally, the production features 126 children, split into two casts; this year, it’s down to 74, with two casts of 37 students, most performing two roles. “That’s a big chunk,” Abergel said, “but even so we didn’t have enough at the casting day to fulfill all those roles.”
Her biggest challenge was to find boys — and boys who still look like boys — for the party scene. Stafford opened auditions, for the first time, to academies beyond the School of American Ballet, including Ballet Academy East, Ballet Tech, Alvin Ailey, Ballet Hispánico, Dance Theater of Harlem and American Ballet Theater. Seven girls from Ballet Academy East will appear in the production, as well as six boys from the Ailey school and Ballet Tech, including the two boys alternating as Fritz, Marie’s adorable, incorrigible younger brother.
And after so much uncertainty and time off, opening up “The Nutcracker” to dancers from different schools brings the ballet world a little closer together. Stafford, for one, can’t wait to see the kids together onstage. “Everyone’s just had to do what it takes to get by to survive,” Stafford said. “And so much of it has been coming together.”
And with “The Nutcracker,” they all get to experience what Abergel called “the greatest training ground that Balanchine created for his students,” going from the Angels, which are all about counting and formations, to the Polichinelles and Candy Canes, which bring classroom technique to the stage.
“Within the realm of roles,” Abergel said, “Balanchine has given his students everything they need to become professionals: learning how to act and behave onstage appropriately in the party scene, learning how to count music and then learning to be able to do real steps.”
The other important change will be to the children’s costumes, which are being rebuilt for the occasion — 128 in all — to accommodate bigger sizes. They aren’t one-offs; the costumes are being made so that they can be modified in the future when the cast’s ages and sizes return to normal. But this time, there is something of a surprise, at least for a “Nutcracker” veterans: A return to Karinska’s original designs for the children in the party scene.
Marc Happel, City Ballet’s director of costumes, credits his new assistant and shopper, Joseph Shrope, for researching the designs as they changed throughout Karinska’s life.
“Over the years of being rebuilt and reinterpreted, things had fallen away, and they really didn’t look a whole lot like her original design,” Happel said. “The colors changed a lot. Her color palette was much dustier, and had a very ’50s, ’60s kind of color palette, which is so beautiful. Things got maybe a little more birthday cakelike, or the colors got a little more vibrant.”
They’ve restored the colors — mauves and browns, along with dusty pinks, blues, purples and greens — and brought back some capelets, as well as scalloped edges on skirts.
“Soon enough they’ll be wanting to wear sweatpants and sweatshirts,” Happel said of the girls, “but they come in, and they put on these Victorian party scene dresses, and their eyes go big.”
Of course, freshening up the costumes in such a big way meant spending more money. “It really became, what’s the priority here?” Stafford said. “Is the priority making sure the kids get on, or is the priority trying to make sure we don’t spend too much money?”
But while this year’s “Nutcracker” is giving opportunities to older dancers to perform, the pandemic has prohibited a younger generation from this annual rite of passage — for two long years now. Sophia Thomopoulos, 14, who played Marie in 2019 and starred in the six-part Disney + documentary “On Pointe,” feels for them.
“I would definitely be disappointed,” she said. “At that age, too, it would be harder to understand what was going on — I think I would understand that this has to happen because of Covid, but I would be like, but why? The whole two past years has been really confusing.”
For her, the chance to perform in the “Nutcracker” again was a huge surprise — and a good one — but it also meant having a serious conversation with her parents. It is, as her family well knows, a time commitment. She dances six days a week; two of those days she has two ballet classes. But she decided to grab her last chance.
This year, she will play a Mouse and a Polichinelle, the part she coveted back when she was cast as the lead, Marie. But while she’s excited to be onstage — and backstage, too, where much real fun is had — she sees this year’s “Nutcracker” as being not just for the dancers. It’s for everyone.
“It’s always a really magical experience, but this year it’s going to be very uplifting,” she said. “It was really hard dancing in our rooms for a year and a half. It’s going to say, we did it. We got past the hardest point of Covid. The dancers are back. And you guys can come see the show again.”

Clothes produced for children have an extraordinary resemblance to adults. Looking at children’s fashion shows, it can be noted that the outfits presented there are just small copies of adults. The only difference lies in the more simplified design.
Of course, every little girl wants to be like a princess or another favorite heroine of an animated film or book. Many psychologists recommend educating and correcting the behavior of the baby in every possible way from an early age, this includes instilling a sense of style.This confirms the importance of choosing a dress together with a young lady, since it will not only help to recreate the image of a beautiful princess from children’s fantasies, but also bring up a taste for clothes.
Of course, little girls have different personalities. Some from an early age behave as befits true fashionistas, while others, on the contrary, behave more like boys. But despite this, at least one elegant dress should hang in the closet of every girl in case of a solemn event, of which there are many in the life of every child. These are birthdays, matinees at school and in kindergarten, the new year and many other holidays and, of course, for such cases, the appearance should also be appropriate.
Beautiful styles and models
When choosing a children’s dress for a festive event, you should abandon narrow styles and give preference to more free ones.Now let’s look at the most successful options suitable specifically for children:
- Cylinder. A comfortable and elegant look at the same time. The free lower part does not restrict movement, allows the child to be comfortably at the holiday, and also gives pomp, festivity and airiness. At the same time, the strict top does not slip
- Wrap dress. Like a balloon dress, it is comfortable to wear, but due to its specific cut, it is not suitable for every young lady.
- Polo dress. It can be considered a good option for girls who prefer a “boyish” style of dress.
- Sun and half sun. It is a great solution for a festive outfit, since this style combines grace and tenderness without excessive pomp and pomp.Perfectly emphasizes the figure of a young fashionista.
- Trapeze dress. Combines simplicity and comfort when worn. Due to the fact that it is quite free, this thing is practically not felt on the body.
- Long sleeves. An outfit with long sleeves can vary in style and length: tulip dress, fish dress, trapeze dress and many others. When choosing such a dress for a girl, take into account the length of her arms so that the sleeves are not too long or, conversely, not short. The styles of the sleeves themselves are also different. The most common are straight sleeves, lantern sleeves, bell sleeves, bat sleeves, raglan sleeves, and deflated sleeves. Silk or chiffon sleeves look very delicate.
- Sundress.There is nothing better for a sultry summer day than a dress like this. Most often, for children, it is made from light, natural, breathable materials, which helps the child to feel comfortable. Good for outdoor celebrations on a hot day. With accessories and trimmings, you can create a great festive look.
Especially for the holiday, many options for outfits have been invented, which differ greatly in style, but they are always united by luxury and wealth.Often, the design of these dresses includes a chic layered skirt and festive decoration. Outfits with a corset are very popular. The upper part of the dress is richly decorated with exquisite ornaments, rhinestones, sequins, artificial flowers, and the bottom is distinguished by its splendor, complex cut and abundant decor. Such a thing is best suited for any occasion, making a real princess out of a young lady.
In general, all festive outfits for little girls are extremely diverse.Delicate lace models are always in fashion. Fashion designers use their rich imagination to create dresses, decorating them with complex decorative elements and coming up with new unusual style options.
For the autumn ball
An outfit for such an event as a ball should combine festivity, grace, sophistication and at the same time be comfortable for dancing and fun.You should not purchase models with a floor-length skirt, as a young princess in a dance may inadvertently get entangled in the fabric. It is best to give preference to an ankle-length dress, it looks magnificent and festive, but at the same time, the child will be comfortable and easy to move in it. As for the color, an outfit that matches the theme of the event, that is, in an “autumn” color scheme, would be a good option.
If you need to choose the best outfit for a children’s matinee, then you should not stop choosing an overly elegant and festive dress, as if you are gathering your daughter for a wedding. Of course, fluffy floor-length skirts and tight corsets will make a girl a princess, but you shouldn’t sacrifice her convenience for this. Just imagine what the child will be like, such an outfit will only turn the holiday into a nightmare, because usually children do not behave calmly throughout the entire event, they prefer to run, play and have fun.
Undoubtedly, a dress for a birthday girl should be bright, elegant and attract a lot of attention from guests.Give preference to festive dresses made in bright colors, but in no case should the dress be too long, in order to prevent possible injuries that the hostess of the holiday can get if she accidentally steps on the skirt. The choice of a costume for a birthday will depend on the place of its holding, if the holiday involves active rest, then it is worth giving up lush formal clothes and giving preference to comfortable, but moderately festive dresses.
What length to choose
It cannot be said about this dress that it is universal, but if your beloved daughter dreams of just such an outfit, then do not refuse her.It can be worn on a holiday, birthday or graduation party. Decor made of small details can give it a special festivity: beads, rhinestones, sequins, flowers from ribbons. Large decor also fits well if the dress is plain and simple. You should not buy a dress to the floor, since a baby may accidentally stumble over a long skirt while playing with children, the best option would be an ankle-length dress.
A young lady in a short dress will always look gentle and charming.Such a dress can be made in a classic style, with a fluffy skirt or low waistline. A new trend is dresses with a fluffy tutu skirt. Fashion designers try to implement this option, using the brightest and most cheerful shades, such as orange, lime, fuchsia, bright blue, yellow, green, turquoise, light green.
Before buying, you should decide on the color scheme of the future festive dress.The most popular for girls are light and delicate pastel shades. The print can be different, but most often you can find girly drawings: butterflies, flowers, soft toys, exquisite patterns.
Plain-colored clothes are in no less demand. In no case should you be guided by stereotypes, the most common of which is that girls must wear pink. It is better to pay attention to the appearance and color type of the child and focus your attention on a specific color based on this.
Very young children absolutely do not care about their appearance, but with age, the baby pays more and more attention to this. Children prefer bright colors. Strive to dress your girls brightly, stylishly, colorful and prominently. When buying, try to give the little fashionista the opportunity to make a choice herself in order to develop her own taste, independence and self-confidence. The most popular colors are:
- White.Very delicate, fresh and at the same time elegant and has its own special charm. Extremely popular for dress making. Will look best on a girl with dark skin and dark hair.
- Yellow. Bright and cheerful color, symbolizing sunshine, joy and gold. Your little fashionista in a dress of this color will definitely attract a lot of attention.
- Red. Since it is very bright, your child will certainly not go unnoticed. Red symbolizes beauty, fire. It cheers up and bewitches. This is a great option for a festive look.
- Pink. It gives its owner tenderness, sophistication and softness.In people, he creates associations with a friendly and kind attitude. Girls in pink kerchiefs will cause a lot of affection in adults. – Light green. This color combines cheerful yellow and peaceful green. Clothes made in light green shade will certainly attract the attention of others. You should opt for it if you want your little princess to stand out from the other guys at the children’s matinee. -Blue. This color is considered to be boyish, but it is even very appropriate in girls’ wardrobe.Deep blue dresses look great on blue-eyed ladies. It is a rather calm color, creates an atmosphere of mystery and seriousness around itself, but at the same time it is very elegant and chic, especially in combination with golden accessories.
How to choose: tips
When choosing a dress, it is imperative to take into account the opinion of the child, since it will be he who will wear it.Therefore, we do not recommend that mothers go in search of a dress alone, take their daughter with you. By what parameters do little women of fashion choose this or that outfit? The splendor of the skirt, lace, sequins and other details, making it look like a beautiful princess. And mothers try to give their preference in favor of high-quality tailoring, reliable fasteners and natural materials.
Fitting is another strong argument against shopping alone.Modern models of dresses cannot be broken down into any specific standards and they need to be selected individually for a number of characteristics, the key points are body structure, height and skin tone of the future owner of a fashionable outfit. One and the same dress will look absolutely different on girls with dark and fair skin, on one of them it will look great, and at the same time, the second will be better to look for something else. A high-waisted dress will successfully sit only on a thin one; for a donut, other options should be considered.
Moms must take into account such an important point that an elegant dress for their beautiful daughter is not an ordinary piece of clothing. Of great importance in the formation of the personality of the future girl are the sensations that the child will experience at the holiday in a new outfit. Therefore, the purchase should be treated with all responsibility and seriousness.
With what to wear
In addition to the dress, shoes, a bag and bijouterie will help to complement the image of a young fashionista. For young ladies, the best option would be small, graceful shoes with a small heel. And also a small neat bag in order to carry the necessary small things in it, it is not recommended to use a clutch, since children often forget about it and leave it in all sorts of places.
Whether it’s a cute cute handbag matching the color of the dress.
Jewelry for young ladies should be chosen not too large and weighty, so that their massiveness does not interfere with the child’s play with peers and spend time comfortably at the holiday.
Well-chosen shoes and accessories will help you create a beautiful and unique image. Here the matter remains only for your imagination.
