In 1994, a group of Melrose residents interested in the arts decided to give North Shore dancers an opportunity to perform in a full-length production of The Nutcracker. After one year of fund-raising efforts in the community, a Board of Directors was formed and enough money was raised to pay for the stunning scenery and costumes that make ballet productions so special. Since 1995, MYB has made The Nutcracker an annual tradition in the city of Melrose. This classic ballet has been staged annually at the Melrose Memorial Hall. On average, our youth cast consists of hundreds of dancers from more than 19 surrounding communities, enrolled in as many as 33 different dance studios.   Over the years, many Artistic Directors have led MYB's production of The Nutcracker. Credits include, Denise Cecere-1995, Terry Fox-1996, Tamlyn Bernhausen-1997-1998, Jaclyn Cronsberg-1999, Alfonso Figuera-2000-2001, Katie Pesce-2002-2004, Jaclyn Cappozzi Demianiuk and Christina Leonard-Kristan as Associated Director 2005-2015, Matthew Parello and Travers King as Assistant Director 2016. Travers King and Andrea Fanikos have been co-Artistic Directing since 2017.... Show more
