4SDA's The Nutcracker

4S Dance Academy proudly presents its 5th annual performance of The Nutcracker. Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score, 4SDA’s professionally choreographed dancers, guest artists and performers bring to life the beautiful and beloved tale. All ages are welcome and encouraged to let their imagination run wild as they join Clara on a magical journey with her Nutcracker through epic battles, dances with snowflakes, to the Land of the Sweets and back again.
