The Central Pennsylvania Nebula Performing Company (Nebula)

Our award-winning performance troupe, Nebula, consists of students from ages of 3 and up. Nebula is a non-profit performing company located within The School of Music and Dance. Nebula provides advance training opportunities for young performers to develop their skills in music and dance.  There are extra classes through the week and year for Nebula members; during those classes the dancer’s learn dances for our annual Nutcracker performance, local performances throughout the community, and a production number for our annual spring recital.  We also try to find one local competition a year for our Nebula dancers to compete in. This is not mandatory, but it allows the dancers an opportunity to participate and experience a dance competition. You do not need to audition for Nebula; it is open to all SMD students who are seeking additional training and performance opportunities.  Dancers are placed in groups based on ability and focus on technique, style, stage-presence, team-building and having FUN!!!!  If you aren’t sure that you can make a yearly commitment to Nebula but still want to perform in our famous yearly Nutcracker performance, please let us know, we would be happy to have you. Auditions are required to participate in Nutcracker.
