Fifty-five members of Cascade Dance Company, the student performers at Snoqualmie’s Cascade Dance Academy, are readying themselves for their annual holiday variety show

“Nutcracker Sweets,” act 2 of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker suite, is an introduction to ballet for the little ones or anybody who wants to experience a shorter version of the holiday classic.

The audience can expect all levels and ages, from the 4-year-old Gingerbread dancers up to the 13-year-old Sugar Plum Fairy performing dances to the beloved Nutcracker music.  Clara and her Nutcracker are taken to the Land of Sweets where they are entertained by the royal court with dances from around the world.

“Holidays on Broadway” is an upbeat musical theatre performance by the Cascade Dance Company that’ll get the audience into the holiday spirit.  The show in its entirety is about an hour and 15 minutes, including intermission.

The performance is 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9, at Cascade View Elementary School. Tickets are $6 and are available in advance at Cascade Dance Academy’s main office, 7722 Center Blvd. S.E., or at the door. To learn more about Cascade Dance Academy, visit http://cascadedance.com.
