On December 4 and 5, the Dance Foundation of Maryland and Morton Street Dance Center will present a truly special Nutcracker at Chesapeake Arts Center. Born out of the pandemic and presented at a time when representation in the arts seems so critical, this fast-paced, original Nutcracker featuring dancers aged 7-64 is packed with spirit, spectacle, and the enchanting beauty of ballet.

In this world of many Nutcrackers, few performances provide a broad opportunity for young dancers of color to shine in these roles and appreciate the richness of such magnificent music and artistry. I am thrilled that we can produce such a significant show at a time when our young people have been through the traumas, isolation, and chaos that the pandemic has laid bare for them. It is a delight to see them caught up in the magic of the art and in the beauty of the fantasy." - Donna L. Jacobs, Director
