    The Nutcracker
    "a Contemporary Look"

    Join Peridance Capezio Center's Artistic Director and choreographer Igal Perry for an innovative contemporary Nutcracker experience, a new tradition that pushes the boundaries of the holiday favorite you know and love!

    By weaving hip hop, modern, and ballet together with an intriguing new perspective, this classic is sure to delight audiences of all ages and introduce every generation to The Nutcracker anew. Snowflakes, sugarplums, and a grand pas de duex will capture your heart as they have since childhood, while contemporary choreography makes Peridance's Nutcracker unlike any you've seen before!

    This dance extravaganza will be set to excerpts from Tchaikovsky's original score as well as new music for an exciting new take on the classic ballet. Presented in Peridance's state-of-the-art, in-house Salvatore Capezio Theater, this production brings dreams to life and is a holiday event to remember! The performance showcases a cast of over 60 dancers including young students from The School at Peridance, pre-professionals from the Certificate Program and the International Student Programs, and professional dancers from the Peridance Contemporary Dance Company.
