Davenport Third Graders Enjoy The Nutcracker

3rd graders at Nutracker performance

On Friday, December 9th, 26 school buses dropped off approximately 1,200 Davenport third graders at the Adler Theatre to enjoy a performance of the Quad City Ballet’s The Nutcracker. This is the second year that Davenport’s third graders attended the performance at no charge to their families through the Great Minds Program of the Davenport Schools Foundation. Prior to the show, dancers from Ballet Quad Cities visited all third-grade classrooms to prepare students for the performance with the story line, a close-up look at some of the hand-made costumes, and rehearsal of some of the performance’s movements.
