For the sixth year in a row, the Shepherdstown School of Dance performed to a sold-out crowd at Shepherd University last Sunday in their rendition of The Nutcracker. I personally wasn’t able to go, but the performance has received so many raving reviews that it’s become a popular event to look forward to every year in the community.
The school is famous for its ballet, tap, and jazz shows performed by dancers of all ages. Their rendition of The Nutcracker has become a must-see winter highlight in Shepherdstown over the years. Even if you are not a fan of ballet or classical music, it will be difficult not to appreciate the talent and hard work that these performers dedicate to their craft!
Writing this I regret not having been able to watch this year’s show, but I will strive to see it next year! It’s definitely an event that the entire family will enjoy!
Meanwhile in Maryland, The City Ballet School and the Western Maryland City Ballet Company also performed The Nutcracker on Sunday at The Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown.
It’s certainly a Christmastime classic that should not be missed!
