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.

I have seen better High school dance concerts.
A mumbling, rambling, nervous narrative to start then repetition, repetition, repetition.
Failed on all levels, technical, talent, entertainment value.
Very disappointing. The Luckman so often has great dance and music programs so I will consider this an anomaly.
<p>An explosive fusion of hip hop and dance theatre, this all-female ensemble will blow you away with a performance that is “intensely emotional and casually streetwise” (Jennifer Dunning, New York Times). </p> <p>Based in Brooklyn and comprised of young women from the United States, Colombia and Japan, this eight-member ensemble may not share the same spoken language, but they have all acquired the common universal languages of dance and urban hip-hop on the streets of the cities where they grew up. </p> <p>Decadance, led by artistic director Jennifer Weber, strives to take the female hip-hop artist out of the background of music videos and into the forefront of theatrical performance. Decadance vs. The Firebird is a high-energy urban ballet that mashes up Stravinsky’s Firebird with original hip-hop beats, fusing break dancing with ballet and remixing the classic tale from the ballet with a contemporary vision.</p>
