Marching toy soldiers, waltzing snowflakes, mischievous mice and Tchaikovsky's unforgettable score are quintessential hallmarks of the holidays. Celebrate the season with Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's student production of The Nutcracker, a holiday ballet for the whole family. Featuring dancers of all ages, The Nutcracker tells the story of young Clara, who receives a gift of a wooden nutcracker doll at her parents' Christmas party. That night, she dreams her nutcracker comes to life and together they battle the wicked Mouse King and journey through an enchanted forest of snow to reach the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy and all her sweet subjects await them.

What a wonderful folkloric group: great dancers; simple yet effective staging (the better to show off the dancing); varied & colorful costumes; excellent musicians and singers. I have never hear of this group before but you can bet that I will see them every chance I get! I was particularly struck by the sense of "family" that the group exhibited. "Viva la Danza Floricanto/USA"!
Strongly influenced by the Afro Caribbean rhythms from Veracruz, Mexico, Un Zapateado Chicano explores Gema Sandoval's Chicano voice in dance. In direct opposition to the very symmetrical sounds of traditional Mexican folk music, the syncopated sounds of Veracruz provide the inspiration for the rhythms that Floricanto explores in this two hour production where dancers become part of the music by establishing percussive dialogues with musicians and, together, explore the connections that exist in the rhythms of our global cultures.
