Ready for some classic holiday cheer? Don’t miss Artistry in Motion’s  9th annual Winter Spectacular, “The Nutcracker...With a Twist,” on Dec. 14 and 15 at the Prairie Lakes Theatre. The two-act dance concert is a joyous interpretation of Tchaikovsky’’s traditional score from everyone’s favorite holiday ballet, The Nutcracker and The Mouse King.

The first act features classical ballet pieces set to the original music. The second act is the twist. The music selected includes remixes and covers of the traditional music with jazz, tap, and hip-hop numbers. Joining the Spectacular for the second year will be dancers from the Tots in Motion program performing Little Snowflakes, on Saturday at 2 p.m.
