Hip-Hop Nutcracker A Holiday Mashup:
Mix it up with this new holiday classic!
The Story: Clara receives a prized wooden nutcracker during a holiday party at her Victorian home. Once she falls asleep, her dream takes her into a world with wizards, toy soldiers, mice, and a sugar plum fairy. Instead of Candy Land, Clara finds herself in a modern hip-hop land dancing with characters who don’t look or dance the way they do back home! The Performers: A cast of 35 all-star hip-hop artists join The Tribe and Poise’n to present the score and story with a contemporary flavor. Sanders and Martinez, dance partners who met at the Academy of Villains, incorporate their dance and hip-hop backgrounds into the performance, fusing love, holiday spirit, community, and even a little magic.
Tchaikovsky music still reigns supreme with several new twists and reimaginings brought to life by choreographers Alee Martinez and Issac ‘Stuck’ Sanders. Co-Founders and directors of The Tribe and Poise’n, both Martinez and Sanders have a rich dance and hip-hop history. They mix the iconic pieces of the story and Tchaikovsky’s score (with some added twists) and create explosive hip-hop dance.
