Momentum Music and Dance Academy’s ‘Nutcracker’ will be Dec. 13–14

Nutcracker Dew Drop Black Edge  Web 1200[1] [1]Burien’s Momentum Music and Dance Academy will present three performances of The Nutcracker at the Highline Performing Arts Center on Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14.

Over the past seven years Momentum has been developing their rendition of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker into a full-length ballet that has quickly become a Christmas tradition for families throughout the Highline area. There is something for everyone, including sweet Clara, a splendid party scene with a majestic Christmas tree that magically grows, amusing antics from brother Fritz, and a riveting battle scene between the Nutcracker and the Rat Queen. Audiences will be mesmerized by the beauty of snow falling while dancers transform the stage into a winter wonderland, and amazed when colossal Mother Ginger glides upon stage. The opportunity to see such a beautifully done ballet, presented locally at an affordable price, while supporting the Highline arts community and hard work of local, school-aged students is unparalleled!

There will be three full-length performances of The Nutcracker: Friday, December 13 and Saturday, December 14 at 6:30 p.m. and a matinee on Saturday, December 14 at 1:30 p.m. All performances will be at the Highline Performing Arts Center at 401 South 152nd Street, Burien.
