Hip Hop Nutcracker

  • New Jersey Performing Arts Center One Center Street Newark, NJ 07102 (map)

Celebrate the holiday season with NJPAC’s very own holiday smash – an urban dance retelling of the timeless fairy tale, featuring rap legend Kurtis Blow as special guest emcee. The Hip Hop Nutcracker resets Tchaikovsky’s classic score to explosive hip-hop choreography, courtesy of Jennifer Weber. A dozen all-star dancers – plus a DJ, a violinist, and awesome digital scenery – bring the traditional Nutcracker story to new life, but with a distinctly urban twist. This evening-length show celebrates love, community, and the magic of the holiday season.
