Twenty-two dancers from three local dance studios performed in the Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker” on Thursday at the State Theatre in Portland.

Twenty-two children ages 7 to 17 were chosen during auditions this fall. Local students are given opportunities to perform with the troupe as part of a program run by the Moscow Ballet.

The students filled such roles in the holiday classic as mice and snowflakes.
