It presents the familiar charming tale of a young girl named Clara who dreams of having adventures with her nutcracker that she receives for a Christmas present, but with a modern, contemporary twist.
Suitable for all ages, Urban Nutcracker features ballet, urban tap, hip hop, swing, flamenco, step, jazz, and traditional Chinese dancing to provide a diverse dance experience that everyone will love!
The Tony Williams Dance Center aims to provide dance instruction to a diverse urban community.

Fielder, the Wondertwins, as well as several other special guest performers to provide a unique version of the classic ballet.
Especially appealing to all of you music lovers, The Urban Nutcracker combines Tchaikovsky’s original Nutcracker score with Duke Ellington’s jazz interpretation for a truly unique experience. The diversity of this music combined with the diversity of the dance as well as the people provide an inspiring beautiful performance, perfect for the most wonderful time of the year.
