Description: Choreographer Igal Perry has created a very contemporary "Nutcracker," weaving together hip-hop, modern, and ballet for his intriguing new perspective on the classic. Perry uses excerpts from Tchaikovsky's beloved score and adds a few surprise pieces of new music. More than 60 dancers will participate, including young students from The School at Peridance, pre-professional students, and professional guest dancers.
