The Gentle Nutcracker
Creativity, Imagination & DanceThe Gentle Nutcracker, presented by Florida Arts & Dance Company students is a shortened version of the holiday classic. This performance features subdued lights and sounds for those who may be sensory sensitive or those who would like to introduce young children to the story of “The Nutcracker”. The magical tale follows a young girl’s journey with her prince to a delicious land filled with leaping candy canes and sweet sugar plums. This ballet is set to the music of Tchaikovsky and is based on the story, “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice” by E.T.A. Hoffman.
