Summit County’s Summit School of Dance and the CO.motion Dancers Present a Community Holiday Classic: the Nutcracker

Every year, students of the Summit School of Dance and the CO.motion Dancers dazzle audiences with the Nutcracker Suite at the Warren Station Center for the Arts in River Run at Keystone. Under the direction of owner and instructor Melanie Frey, the troupes perform a fanciful interpretation of the classic tale and the most ageless sounds of Tchaikovsky. Join Clara during her enchanting Christmas Eve dream alongside the Mouse King and the Prince. The popular pieces of the ballet including the famous, “Waltz of the Flowers” and the “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy”, equate to a fairytale brought to life complete with little mice, gingerbread soldiers and delight for the whole family. Guests can catch two community performances, a matinee at 3:30pm and an evening show at 6:30pm on Saturday, December 3rd. Tickets are available in advance online at www.warrenstation.com for just $15.00 for adults, $7.00 for kids ages twelve and $2.00 for children five and under.

The Warren Station Nutcracker Suite is particularly special thanks to Summit County participants. The production stars not only local dancers, but residents of all ages who have been rehearsing since September in hopes to inspire local youth and create lifelong memories for attendees. As wintry and wonderful as the holiday season itself, the performers are also adding an entertaining twist to the shows. Each production entails an interactive Holiday Showcase featuring a jingle bell parade and community singers. Performances will be approximately one hour with general admission seating and will include a brief intermission. Advanced tickets are recommended. As with any successful arts organization, continued growth depends on the generosity of others. A large portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Summit School of Dance and the Co. Motion Dancers.
