Featuring the students of Gustafson Dance

Celebrate the magic of the holidays with this family favorite based on the classic story by E.T.A. Hoffman! Set to the unforgettable music of Tchaikovsky, the ballet tells the story of young Clara, who receives a beautiful toy Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. In her dreams, the Nutcracker comes to life, saving her from a band of hilariously evil rats and escorting her on a magical journey. They travel through the Land of the Snowflakes to the Kingdom of Sweets, where Clara dances and plays with beautiful and wondrous characters that can only exist in her dreams.
