The Nutcracker NYC 2015: A Contemporary Ballet by Giada Ferrone
The Nutcracker NYC
THE NUTCRACKER NYC, A Contemporary Ballet by Giada Ferrone featuring students from Connecticut Dance Center
This full-scale 90-minute production is distinctive for uniting students & professionals from several dance communities from all over the New York City Tri-State area, while promoting the positive and powerful impact of dance on our fractured communities and creating a cast which is as truly international and diverse as New York City's own "Melting Pot". During the season, artists of The Nutcracker NYC donate their time teaching dance at Groove with Me, a studio in East Harlem that offers free classes to girls in an enduring space for them to express themselves and discover their capacities in a stable environment.
At her uncle's holiday party, young Clara meets an astonishingly gorgeous couple, a mysterious gentleman and a tiny hungry spider. They become the inspiration for her dream where a dangerous King Spider kidnaps the Gingerbread Toy and the Marzipan Doll her uncle gave her as a gift.
