New Heights Dance Theater, a resident dance company of Clemens Center, will perform its 15th production of The Nutcracker in Motion this year at Clemens Center on Saturday, December 20, 2014 with shows at 2:00pm and 7:00pm.

The Nutcracker in Motion has been billed as a fast-paced, jazzed up version of the classic holiday ballet Nutcracker.  New Heights Dance Theater's twist on this production will provide you with toe tapping music, elaborate costumes, and props. Talented dancers will bring with them dance variations that will include: jazz, modern, lyrical, acro, as well as traditional elements such as classic ballet and pointe.

New Heights Dance Theater includes dancers of all ages from the Twin Tiers. They bring with them a wide variety of dance training and experiences. Each dancer is chosen for our production through auditions open to dancers ages 6 years old and up.    For more information about auditions, membership and productions, please contact us today.
