Willam, Harold, & Lew Christensen learned to dance in Brigham City at the Box Elder Academy of Music and Dance, built in 1903. They transformed dance in the American West and helped develop three renowned ballet companies - Ballet West, The Portland Ballet, and The San Francisco Ballet. On Christmas Eve, 1944, Willam Christensen directed the the first full-length production of the Nutcracker in America, at San Francisco’s War Memorial Opera House. It was an instant sensation and launched the Nutcracker Ballet as a national tradition! Visit us as we celebrate the 78th anniversary of the first Nutcracker Ballet, which had its founding in Historic Downtown Brigham City. Come see the Nutcrackers on display in our unique retail stores on Main Street. The Nutcracker Celebration begins on November 16th, 2022 during our monthly 3rd Friday LIVE! event. We're planning for live music, food trucks (weather permitting), and real-life ballerinas in the window displays. The annual Nutcracker Ballet display window contest between our Main Street merchants will also take place that evening. Returning this year is the Nutcracker Christmas Market, hosted by Hive on Main and managed by the Brigham City Farmers Market. This two-day market, held December 2-3, will feature unique artisan vendors offering high quality handcrafted goods. It's the perfect place to find a one-of-a kind gift for Christmas.
