Celebrate the holiday season with The Nutcracker when Dance Alive National Ballet brings this quintessential classic to life at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. featuring dancers from the local community.
In September, Dance Alive’s artistic director came to the Dolly Hand to conduct an audition so that students from the area’s dance studios could vie for a part in the show. The following dancers were cast: Baleigh Padgett as Clara’s friend and a mouse, Dallas Alvarez as a party girl and mouse, Bailey Cochran as a party girl and soldier, Lily Edmonds as a party girl, Caitlyn Golphin as a party girl and soldier, Hayden Mosley as a party girl and soldier, Melasia Porter as a party girl and mouse, Amanda Prevatt as a party girl, Lailah Simon as a party girl and soldier, and Somora Williams as a party girl and soldier.
In addition to local dancers, Dance Alive National Ballet’s distinctive artistry is featured in this visually stunning production of an all-time holiday family favorite that includes beautiful dancing, sets and costumes.
The Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center is located on the Belle Glade Campus of Palm Beach State College at 1977 College Drive. For tickets, call the box office at (561) 993-1160 or visit www.dollyhand.org.
