The Nutcracker

Based on a novel by 19th-century romantic fabulist E.T.A. Hoffman, The Nutcracker weaves a magical tale of holiday adventure around one of the most recognizable scores in the ballet repertoire. It begins when young Clara receives a nutcracker from her godfather, a wizardly toymaker named Drosselmeyer. Sneaking downstairs to see the toy after everyone else has gone to bed, she suddenly finds herself caught in the middle of a pitched battle between the toys and an army of mice. After saving the nutcracker with a well-thrown shoe to the Mouse King’s head, Clara and her now-living prince venture into the Land of Snow and the Land of Sweets to celebrate.

Throughout their adventures, Tchaikovsky’s dazzling inventiveness propels the dances of nimble flowers and regal fairy queens. The “Waltz of the Snowflakes” floats weightlessly above the angelic voices of a youth choir, whereas the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy” tiptoes to the haunting, music-box chimes of a celesta. A medley of exotic national dances—including a Spanish bolero and jumping dance of Candy Canes—add to the phantasmagoric celebration before the whole dream ends, as all dreams must.

Stevan Grebel Center for Dance

Students at the Stevan Grebel Center for Dance become metaphorical cousins of such legends as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolf Nureyev. That's because Stevan Grebel, like those shining stars, was taught by none other Alexander Pushkin, the headmaster of the Leningrad Choreographic School from the 1940s through the 1960s. But Grebel goes beyond the ancient dance form—and even beyond the stage itself. Students ages 3 and older can sign up not only for jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip-hop dance classes, but also for supplementary programs that cover forms of creative motion such as ice skating, cheering, gymnastics, and yoga. Classes are grounded in the Vaganova ballet technique, a melding of the graceful French style and the more athletic Italian school.
