Every year, students at the Summit School of Dance and the CO.motion Dancers dazzle audiences with “The Nutcracker” suite at the Warren Station Center for the Arts in River Run at Keystone. Under the direction of owner and instructor Melanie Frey, the troupes perform a whimsical interpretation of the classic tale and the most timeless sounds of Tchaikovsky.
Join Clara during her enchanting Christmas Eve dream alongside the Mouse King and the Prince. The ballet’s most popular pieces — the famous “Waltz of the Flowers” and the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” — bring a fairy tale to life. Complete with little mice and gingerbread soldiers, it’s a delight for the whole family. Guests can catch two community performances, a matinee at 3:30 p.m. and an evening show at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6.
This production of “The Nutcracker” suite stars not only local students dancers, but also residents of all ages who have been rehearsing since September. The performers are adding an entertaining twist to the shows. Each production entails an interactive Holiday Showcase, featuring a jingle-bell parade and community singers. Performances will be approximately one hour with general admission seating and will include a brief intermission. Advanced tickets are recommended.
As with any successful arts organization, continued growth depends on the generosity of others. A large portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the CO.motion Dancers. The teams will also host a “Land of the Sweets” bake sale in the Warren Station lobby to raise additional funds.
