SEE a live, 2020-inspired spin on The Nutcracker taking place on Zoom - from our living rooms, to yours! This virtual performance features over 30 community movers - children, teens, and adults - from across New York State, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Florida, Oklahoma, and beyond...though apart, we are together building community through dance. The show will begin with a vocal performance by Upper West Side Women's Chorus, Lux Mea.

And you can get involved in the action, too...

Join us for a free pre-show MOVE: Melodies in Motion workshop with Lux Mea from 12:30pm - 1:15pm EST on Sunday, December 20. First we'll learn Walking in a Winter Wonderland with conductor Kaitlin Simonson, and then a short dance (from your seat!) with choreographer Marisa f. Ballaro. You can even join us "on stage" to perform both of these during the show, if desired!

After the show stick around and SHARE with the performers and audience. Play "Fritz" (like Bingo!) and win prizes. Grown-ups will be sent suggested cocktail recipes to have on hand, and we'll finish the celebration with some holiday music, conversation, and a dance party!

We hope to SEE, MOVE, & SHARE with you on Sunday, December 20!


Ballaro Dance is a New York City based modern dance company performing the work of Marisa f. Ballaro.


The dances are about physical space, music, and time. Small gestures are brought to life while making meaning through storytelling.
