Through the art of movement and dance, a variety of dance students performed a remixed version of The Nutcracker at Unchagah Hall on Saturday night. According to the program, the story begins with a little girl named Clara and her father Dr. Drosselmeyer hosting a party on Christmas Eve. Guests and their families arrive and Clara's father gives her a special gift: a wooden nutcracker. The party comes to an end, the guests leave and Clara goes to bed. In the middle of the night, she awakes and searches for her Nutcracker doll. She enters into a magical dreamworld where the Nutcracker is real and he leads life-size soldiers to fight of the giant mice. A battle takes place and the Nutcracker wins. Angels come and take Clara, the Nutcracker and Dr. Drosselmeyer to the land of snow where snowflakes dance. In the second act of the show, Clara and the Nutcracker arrive in Candycane Land, where they are greeted by the inhabitants and the kingdom, who perform Spanish, Arabian and Chinese dances for Clara. As the dancing and the party comes to an end, Clara and the Nutcracker dance together with the sugar plum fairy. Everyone does one final dance together as the show comes to an end, presenting the traditional nutcracker story with a modern twist. Photos by Allison Gibbard
