The Gelsey Kirkland production escaped my radar. She's said repeatedly she wants her students--and dancers in general--to understand the narrative power of ballet. Given that there are so many interpretations of the Nutcracker, it'll be interesting to see which story she's chosen.

The Times also did a small piece on her school earlier this year and how a few students destined for more "name" schools have chosen to study with her instead.

Who says ballet is dead!

Hi Marie. I am definitely looking forward to it.

I have fond memories of the Yorkville Nutcracker - my daughter was a student dancer in several years' versions. It does a nice job of injecting a lot of New York into the story.

Hi myo. Francis is pretty good at telling a story through dance. I always look forward to his productions.
