"Nutcracker Supreme" Week


Dance Mission presents, “Nutcracker Supreme”--a reinvented, reimagined, remixed version of the The Nutcracker.

On the night of their regular classes, dancers will showcase their talents in hip hop, tap, lyrical, ballet, and dancenastics, set to music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as well as some modern remixes.

Our story unfolds as Clara’s beloved Nutcracker doll comes to life and defeats the evil Mouse King and his gang of mice. Then the lovely Snow Angels show Clara and the Nutcracker Prince through their snowy forest and into the Land of the Sweets. There they meet an assorted bunch of characters eager to treat them to a celebration beyond imagination!
