Nutcracker in the Lower Celebrates 9th Year at Abrons

Urban Ballet Theater‘s hip-hop/African dance/flamenco-infused/krumping version of The Nutcracker returns to Abrons Arts Center on Saturday for it’s ninth year. The production keeps Tchaikovsky’s original score largely intact but enhances it with contemporary, inner city beats from the Lower East Side, creating a unique take on the classic. A creative jolt of holiday fun for the whole family.  Featuring students from Abrons’ Dance Ensembles as well. $20 // November 27, 28; December 4, 5 at 3 pm, November 27; December 1-4 at 7:30 pm // 466 Grand Street.
