Tchaikovsky's magical score is mashed up with explosive hip hop dance, and an adaptation of the classic story transplanted to Washington Heights.
The dancers, electric violinist, and DJ Boo create holiday magic for the entire family.
This performance is a benefit for UPCA’s Performing Arts Academy and will feature a pre-show performance by our young musicians, dancers, drummers, and circus artists.
The New York Times described it as: "magical" with "touches of poetry" and "a gift to Upper Manhattan." Time Out New York called it “a classic rebooted.” CBS News said it “turns Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way.” And Elle magazine summed it up as “A truly one-of-a-kind experience, filled with high-powered choreography and a very modern storyline.”
