During this year’s performance of The Nutcracker, 240 dancers will take the stage.
The cast has worked for months perfecting their choreography and presentation of the world-famous Russian ballet.
Even with all that hard work, several cast members took time to visit with and perform for some community members who may not be able to make it to the shows.
“We took several dancers to visit with the elderly in some of our community nursing homes, and we also went to Central State Hospital for two performances at their annual M Day Christmas celebration,” said Amelia Pelton, director of dance at Georgia College. “For us the performances are very important, but equally as important is the chance to reach out to people with special needs in our community.”
At the Georgia War Veterans Home, a group of Spanish dancers from the show performed and visited with residents.
