Dances Patrelle presents Francis Patrelle's The Yorkville Nutcracker

This year will be the 26th anniversary of The Yorkville Nutcracker, set in 1895, which includes lavish sets and costumes and takes the audience on a tour through Olde New York's most beloved landmarks, including a holiday party at Gracie Mansion, dancing at the Crystal Palace in the New York Botanical Garden, and skating in Central Park. The Yorkville Nutcracker provides an opportunity for young dancers to dance alongside professional artists. Courtesy of New York City Ballet, Miriam Miller of New York City Ballet will be Sugarplum for the first time with Dances Patrelle, and Jared Angle will return as Cavalier. Also joining the company are Maximilien Baud (Billy Elliot national tour, Joffrey Ballet School) as the Snow King, Grace Pierce (A Chorus Line national tour) as the Snow Queen, and Reed Tankersley (Twyla Tharp Dance Company) as the Snow Prince.
