Without dance, people could only hum along to "Macarena," and Jane Austen characters would be forced to say what was really on their minds. Watch as movements speak with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $34, you get two 300-level orchestra tickets to Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy's Christmas 2011 performance at Discovery Theatre on Saturday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m. (a $69 value, including all fees).
Recipient of the 2010 Outstanding Arts Organization Award, Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy aims to preserve the art of classical dance with professional instruction and dazzling performances. This December, the academy escorts audiences into the holiday season with a wondrous holiday ballet, including numbers from Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. Running approximately two hours, Christmas 2011 flickers across the stage rendered in the graceful pirouettes and favored polo formations of Anchorage Ballet's in-house choreography. International guest artists deliver stirring cameos as the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Cavalier as the cast brings to life adored characters and revered set pieces such as the Russian Dance and electric slide.
