“The Nutcracker” is a time-honored classic ballet that many people flock to see during the holiday season. But this year a local dance school is adding its own interpretation to the iconic dance.

The Northeast Georgia School of Music and Dance will present “The Nutcracker — All Jazzed Up,” featuring ballet, tap, hip hop, swing and other dance styles. Aaron James, who has been featured on America’s Best Dance Crew, will perform the part of the Nutcracker.

The single performance will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, in the Cervantes Theatre at Riverside Military Academy, 2001 Riverside Drive, in Gainesville.

Ticket are $20 for adults and $15 for children at the door.
