Not Just Nutcracker...
Drosselmeier's Magic Toy Shop!
We invite our whole dance community, kindergarten and up, to participate in our annual holiday production of “Not Just Nutcracker.” This year’s performance will tell a story that mixes Rossini's ballet “La Boutique Fantasque” (The Magic Toy Shop) with Tchaikovsky's beloved Nutcracker ballet, and modern arrangements of the classic music to include our jazz, tap, Irish step, hip hop, contemporary, and acro dancers too! Ms. Catherine Rhodes, artistic director, creatively blends her many years of ballet training, her jazz, modern, tap, and musical theater experience, and her design expertise into our energetic and unique productions.
