Everybody has that one movie or show they absolutely must watch in order for it to really feel like Christmastime — for many (like me), it’s “The Nutcracker.” Just hearing the music makes me want to do piqué turns through the mall. Thankfully, there are multiple productions of it in town every year so we can get our fix, and the University of Louisville Dance Academy’s production of it is a gem that may surprise you if you’ve never seen it. Their shortened version of Tchaikovsky’s holiday ballet begins with the gorgeous Snow Scene and goes right into Clara’s dream of the Land of Sweets. In its 17th year, the production is under the direction of Cynthia Bronner and Chuck Bronson, and will feature guest artist Robert Dunbar. —Jane Mattingly
