In 2016, Rawson’s production of The San Jose Nutcracker premiered to sold out houses and critical acclaim. About the work, Tad Malone of  The San Jose Metro said, “Ultimately, this show’s captivating success comes down to the meticulous and inspired vision of The New Ballet School’s executive director and choreographer, Dalia Rawson. The routines were intricate, graceful – oftentimes unfurling into each other in remarkably fluid transition.”
