Branches of Dance to present ‘The Nutcracker’

The Southern Berks News - - ENTERTAINMENT - From Ali Perzel

Branches of Dance is proud to an­nounce its first pro­duc­tion of The Nutcracker on Dec. 15 at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. at Wy­omiss­ing Ju­nior/Se­nior High School. Branches of Dance have brought to­gether a cast of 40 dancers from ages 6 to adults from Berks, Schuylkill and Lan­caster coun­ties. Branches of Dance is a small stu­dio with big dreams. Our dancers wanted to put on the show and we needed more per­form­ers. So, in June we held au­di­tions and in­vited dancers to come be a part of our show. It has been beau­ti­ful to watch new friend­ships form and for the dancers to learn from one an­other. Fif­teen thou­sand rhine­stones, 75 cos­tumes, and 150 hours of re­hearsal brings you one amaz­ing show.

Branches Of Dance is a host­ing a Tea Party at the stu­dio as a fundraiser for the show. Spend a mag­i­cal day in the “Land of Sweets” with The Sugar Plum Fairy and her friends from Branches of Dance’s The Nutcracker on Sun­day, Dec. 9, at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Branches of Dance. For young ladies and gentle­men 3-years-old and older $10 per ticket (only the child needs a ticket par­ents are free). Ticket Pack­age In­cludes Tea Party with Re­fresh­ments, In­ter­ac­tive Story Time with the Cast, Nutcracker Keep­sake, Photo Op­por­tu­ni­ties, Crafts with Cast, and a Sneak Peak Mini Per­for­mance by The Cast.
