Wondering what to do on your Saturday night? Well, look no further. On Saturday December 10, the Legacies and Dancer’s Workshop will be presenting the Nutcracker. Cast members range in age from seven to eighteen. The show will be playing at 3:00pm and 6:00pm in the Vandegrift Auditorium. The performance at Vandegrift are two of only four performances, the others being at the Round Top Festival Institute.

 The show is an hour and a half in length, but hours and hours of the dancer’s time are being put into the show. With the show less than a month away, the dancer’s are doing as much preparing as they can.

“We practice every Saturday for four hours. The teacher’s throw choreography at us and we practice over and over. Now we are already practicing in full costume and with the correct lighting,” freshman Hannah Smith said.

Legacies instructor and dance teacher Mrs. Lyons and the Dancer’s workshop instructors got together to produce one amazing show. There are members from the Legacies and dancers from other schools participating in the Nutcracker.

“It wasn’t hard to mix Legacies and Dancer’s Workshop together because both Mrs. Lyons and Dancer’s Workshop staff are very flexible with letting me be where I need to be,” sophomore Delaney Bull said.
