For the December holidays, Cal Performances is teaming up with the Mark Morris Dance Group for a Family Fun Day centered around The Hard Nut, choreographer Mark Morris’s witty, lavish, gender-varied homage to Tchaikovsky’s original score, The Nutcracker.
The festive event includes a Dance with the Mark Morris Dance Group class for all ages to learn excerpts of the Snow and Flowers dances from The Hard Nut to a holiday sing-along with Mark Morris Dance Group Music Director Colin Fowler and a hot chocolate and cookie recipe swap.
Family Fun Day is part of a larger week of programing from the Mark Morris Dance Group called MMDG Holiday Special: Home for the Holidays, which will also include Dance for PD (Parkinson’s Disease) classes and outdoor caroling. The full schedule will be announced on November 27.
