New production features modern twist on a classic Dance Arts Los Alamos kicked off the holiday season with three performances of the “Nutcracker,” — but why stop there? On Wednesday, DALA will again take to the stage at Duane Smith Auditorium in their production of “Nuts, Crackers and Sweets,” a funky version of the “Nutcracker” for all ages.
Not just for balletomanes, “Nuts, Crackers and Sweets” showcases dancers and genres that are not typically present in the “Nutcracker.” DALA students from age three to adult will perform to music by Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, traditional holiday music and even hip hop, to bring the production to life.
Faculty member Manny Romero has contributed a hip hop battle scene, and modern instructor Erica Gionfriddo choreographed the snow scene and “Arabian Coffee.” New faculty member Shannon Elliott teaches ballet, tap, jazz and advanced contemporary ballet. Elliott has choreographed the “Drosselmeyer’s Den” piece for the show.
