3rd Sunday Dance

Sunday, July 15, 2018, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Antoinette Segura and Christo McMaster, will dance the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier Pas De Deux from this unique version of the Nutcracker.

We're blending a little ballet with our ballroom this Sunday, July 15, when we feature two performers from Festival Ballet Albuquerque. They will dance a piece from The Nutcracker in the Land of Enchantment, which has been a staple of holiday entertainment in Albuquerque.

Our featured performers, Antoinette Segura and Christo McMaster, will dance the Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier Pas De Deux from this unique version of the Nutcracker, which is set in territorial New Mexico. As one description explained, this New Mexico Nutcracker features many surprises "including Spanish and flamenco dancers, dancing southwestern snakes, sheep and shepherdesses, hummingbirds, a lively fandango, and a storyteller doll with children."

The ballet is choreographed by Patricia Dickinson Wells. This year's performances will be 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, and 2 p.m and 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 15-16. All performances are at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
