See the BAPA Academy Dance Company in the world premiere of the new ballet “The Nutcracker Swings!” At a swinging party on Christmas Eve in the 1940′s, dancers jump, jive and twist as they welcome home their local hero, a soldier who has been overseas fighting in World War 2. Mary receives a Nutcracker as a gift from the mysterious Madam Duvall, the war hero’s mother. When she falls asleep that night, Mary dreams that her Nutcracker soldier magically comes to life and tells her all about his worldly travels with dancers from China, France, Hawaii and more! Come experience this updated and fun version of an American holiday ballet tradition.
Nutcracker Swings! will be performed at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, 950 Forrest Street, Roswell, Georgia . Show times are Friday, December 20th at 7:00 p.m., Saturday December 21st at 2pm and 7pm. For more information and for tickets, please call 770-578-8272.
