The Nutcracker by Alba Ballet 2013

Today marks the third anniversary of The Nutcracker by Alba Ballet. The companies first ever production. A journey that started for Alba back in 2011. Alba believed they could give talented dancers the opportunity to perform in a full blown classical ballet production. Despite industry experts saying it could not be done. Alba Ballet under the leadership of Julie Gunn defied these predictions and after hundreds of hours work in studio The Nutcracker was ready. Julie was assisted initially by Tristan Borrer then by Shaun McLaughlin. The company was made up of 35 dancers from all over the West of Scotland, who supported the leading Male and Female Dancers, Tim Hill from and Birmingham and Erin OToole from London. Hannah McLaughlin from Inverkip played Clara. and  she was supported by other local dancers in the other lead roles
