“The Nuttycracker,” is the traditional holiday story of “The Nutcracker,” told from the perspective of the now-aged Nutcracker himself. POST PHOTO: KYLIE WRAY - Jazz students rock out to Run Run Rudolph during a performance at Cascadia Village on Saturday, Dec. 12.

The show is made up of a collection of dances including tap, ballet, jazz, hip hop, lyrical jazz, theater dance and musical comedy.

“The show includes an unexpected assortment of dances including the ‘Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy’ done hip hop style,” said Anna Frankus in a news release. “Of course, there will be several traditional ballet dances from ‘The Nutcracker.’”

The school of dance will also collect canned food donations at the event for the Action Center and 100 percent of proceeds from any sales of Frankus’ vintage-style aprons will be donated to the center.
