TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Ballet is making sure more than 2000 local families get to see the Nutcracker this year!

Dreams of Sugar Plum Fairies and Snow Queens are not only for people who can afford a ticket.

"Hope for the Holidays is our special community outreach program where for one magic night in December, we give away every single seat to clients of social service organizations who all come to see a performance of the Nutcracker," said Scott Black with Tulsa Ballet. 

The Tulsa Ballet is preparing to perform its rendition of the Nutcracker- complete with new choreography, new sets, and new costumes.

"We feel that the arts are an important part of any great city and any great community," said Black. 

As performances loom, dancers are perfecting their Acts for their audiences.

One of the nights, the crowd will be full of two thousand clients of local non-profits. 

"It is often their very first time to even be in the building," said Black, "To give people the opportunity to experience a live performance, is oftentimes something they don't have, and we feel it is our duty to make everything that we do at Tulsa Ballet accessible to everyone in the community."

This is the 20th year Tulsa Ballet has hosted Hope for the Holidays- a night to expose people to an art, that might just inspire a new generation of dancers. 

"We hope people will take away the magic of the holidays, the spirit of giving, and all the things that make this time of year so special," said Black.
