MEDINA – Addison Carr, 9, of Medina has been selected to perform in Moscow Ballet’s “The Nutcracker” next month at the Historic Palace Theatre in Lockport.

Addison is a fourth grader at Clifford H. Wise Middle School. She has been dancing since she was 3 at the Dancenter in Medina. She was chosen to perform in “The Nutcracker” after auditioning this past spring.

Bright-eyed and full of smiles, Addison was so excited to be selected. Rehearsals started on Sept. 30 with the performance on Nov. 17. She will be playing the part of a snowflake.

“Addison has beautiful stage presence for such a young dancer,” says Stephanie Szklany, owner of the Dancenter. “Her natural ability to perform no doubt caught the eye of the judges.”

Addison is currently taking Pre-Pointe and Jazz classes from Miss Stephanie at the Dancenter.

Addison is the daughter of Jeremy and Kristy Carr.

Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker includes world-class Russian artists, hand-painted sets, Russian Snow Maidens, and jubilant Nesting Dolls. The “Dove of Peace Tour” will be in more than 100 cities across North America.

Tickets for the Lockport performance are available at the Palace Theatre Box Office or online at
