Dance Factory Performances

You're invited to dance! You're invited to watch!

The Nutcracker

The Dance Factory’s 32nd annual production of The Nutcracker will be presented on Sat., Dec. 9 at 7pm and Sun., Dec. 10 at 2pm at Springfield High School in Springfield, VT. Advance tickets are available at Tina's Hallmark and Woodbury Florist in Springfield, Sage Jewelry and Gifts in Chester, and online at

Our full-scale, professionally costumed production of The Nutcracker delights nearly 1000 community members every year, has raised upwards of $25,000 for local arts initiatives, and has provided an invaluable pre-professional performance experience to hundreds of rural dancers. Participation in The Nutcracker is open to all Dance Factory ballet students in 3rd grade and above (sometimes 2nd grade). Students start out as Mother Goose's children and work their up to soloist roles such as Sugar Plum Fairy and Snow Queen.

Spring Recital

The yearly showcase is a chance for students to demonstrate their dedication and personal progress in pieces choreographed by Dance Factory teaching staff. Dancers aged preschool to adult perform ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, hip hop, and tap. 

The Dance Factory’s 2024 Spring Recital will be held on Saturday, May 11th at 2pm and 6pm at Springfield High School. Tickets are available at online through Eventbrite, at Tina's Hallmark and Woodbury Florist in Springfield, VT, Sage Jewelry and Gifts in Chester, VT, and at the door.

Additional Performances

Vermont State Dance Festival: Dancers in 8th grade and up can participate in a Repertory class in which they prepare original choreography to perform at the annual Vermont State Dance Festival, held each November in Lyndon, VT. 

Community collaborations: Dance Factory students have the opportunity to perform at additional events throughout the year including Springfield on the Move’s Concerts at the Comtu series, Springfield Community Band’s children’s concert, showcases in district elementary schools, and more.
