Dance Kids Presents The Nutcracker
Dance Kids of Monterey County’s twenty-second annual holiday ballet has a fresh look with all new choreography and costumes! Award winning choreographer Andrea Paris-Gutierrez, Los Angeles Ballet Academy, directs the Peninsula’s pre professional company in the timeless story of Clara and her beloved Nutcracker. Two performances of the Cavalier and his Sugar Plum Fairy this year will feature guest artists Dylan Gutierrez and Jeraldine Mendoza, appearing courtesy of the The Joffrey Ballet.
With over 100 Peninsula dancers and gymnasts in the all new production, we continue to honor tradition and introduce brand new scenes to delight our devoted patrons as well as first time Nutcracker audience members.
Dance Kids Nutcracker has it all, sword fights, humor, beauty, grace and enough youngsters on stage to assure our audiences walk out of the theatre with a smile!
