Promoting cultural awareness and understanding through dance, World Dance Fusion's annual production of The Jewish Nutcracker puts a Hanukkah twist on the beloved winter classic.

The production of The Jewish Nutcracker showcases Artistic Director, Katy Alaniz Rous' multi-genre choreography, blending dance forms such as Flamenco, Chinese, Persian, Kathak, Afro-Haitian and Capoeira to illustrate the world Jewish community. This production introduces a new holiday tradition, recognizes the diversity of Jewish culture, and re-tells the story of Hanukkah.

"In most Nutcrackers there is somebody's interpretation of Chinese dance or bellydance within a ballet theme, but in our Nutcracker it's actually culturally authentic. This production not only speaks to people of Jewish heritage, but to people of all cultural backgrounds who are looking for representation and diversity in the holiday season," said Katy Alaniz Rous, artistic director and choreographer, World Dance Fusion.
