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.

It seemed that everyone that was in attendence loved the performance. With the exception of my date and myself!
I must not be intune with that type of show, but it was very slow, and I'm not sure what type of abstract statement they were trying to make. But I hated it!!!!
Acclaimed around the world, the Limón Dance Company celebrates the 100th anniversary of José Limón’s birth with two premieres at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. The company’s clarity and expressiveness of movement embrace the humanistic approach to dance that was the vision of its legendary founder. The major revival premiere of Anna Sokolow’s groundbreaking jazz inspired "Rooms" (1955) set to an original jazz score by Kenyon Hopkins (performed live by Charles Owens and members of the Luckman Jazz Orchestra) and the world premiere of Clay Taliaferro’s newly commissioned work, "Into My Heart’s House," inspired by Limón’s love for the music of J.S. Bach is something that cannot be missed.
