Every holiday season, the Company of Dance Arts has brought the magic of The Nutcracker to life, and 2021 marks our 35th Anniversary!  Set to Tchaikovsky’s stirring score, soloists from NYC ballet companies join the accomplished local dancers in the most popular ballet of all time.  Youngsters as well as the young-at-heart will delight with Clara as she journeys with her Nutcracker through the Land of Snow and the Kingdom of Sweets to meet the Sugarplum Fairy.
