It’s that time of year again, a time for dancing sugar plum fairies, a beautiful girl named Clara and her Nutcracker.
The students of Dance Maker Academy are returning to Pawhuska’s Constantine Theater to perform its sixth annual production of the Nutcracker Ballet. The performances will be Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 11 at 3 p.m.
The music of Tchaikovsky helps to create a living art form that is difficult to forget. From the crashing battle between the Nutcracker and his enemies to the beautiful waltz of the flowers to the parade of toys, young and old will experience the excitement as Dance Maker Academy performs this holiday classic choreographed and directed by Jenna Smith LaViolette after Pavel Rotaru.
“We are grateful for the continued support of our sponsors, the Osage Foundation, Oklahoma Arts Council, Osage Casinos, Jerry and Marlene Mosley, Will and Anne Baker, Artists of Indian America and many others for helping us continue the legacy of ballet in the Osage, and we look forward to others joining our efforts,” LaViolette said.
