  • The Nutcracker
  • |


    Join world-renowned choreographer Igal Perry for an innovative contemporary Nutcracker experience! With over 60 performers, this professionally lit extravaganza is set to excerpts from Tchaikovsky's original score as well as new music selected by Igal Perry. This classical Nutcracker story is brilliantly blended with a fusion of hip hop and contemporary dance to guide you through the falling snowflakes and waltzing flowers. The performance is led by the stellar Peridance Contemporary Dance Company dancers, alongside young students from The School at Peridance, the talented Peridance Youth Ensemble, and pre-professional dancers from the Certificate Program.
