In Motion presents The Nutcracker!

In Motion School of Dance once again will bring The Nutcracker to the stage at the State Office Building Auditorium. This holiday ballet classic will be presented on Saturday, December 17 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.

The dance school is excited to be celebrating its 6th season. Each year the production has grown and evolved. This year the cast is made up of over 60 students along with their families. All dancers are enrolled students from In Motion.

The Nutcracker follows the basic story of Clara Stahlbaum receiving her exciting gift of a nutcracker. The ballet classic then proceeds to take the audience on a magical journey to the Land of Sweets where treats from around the world are featured.

Dancers range in age from 4 to adult. Featured performers will be Meagan Sloan en pointe as The Sugar Plum Fairy, Toy Soldier, Snow Queen and Lead Flower, Dew Drop. Senior dancers Savannah Grant and Breanna Lees will take the stage for their last year as the dancing dolls. Clara will be played by Ally Kilburn and Fritz is played by Emmett Young. This year the role of The Nutcracker will be portrayed by Charlie Mouaikel. For more information contact the dance school at 785-5513 or
