Presenting 'The Nutcracker'

Presenting 'The Nutcracker': "Students at Central Elementary School in Albany were treated to an excerpt of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” on Dec. 3 at the school.
Dancers with Legacy Ballet of Albany, directed by Heather Hill, performed several of the Russian ballet’s best-known numbers, including the Spanish, Chinese, Russian and Arabian dances, and the “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.”
The performance linked with Central’s ongoing theme, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go,” meant to introduce the children to international cultures.
The ballet company also will present scenes from “The Nutcracker” at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Albany Public Library, 2450 14th Ave. S.E.
The performance is free, although seating is limited. For more information, contact Doris Hicks at or (541) 791-0015."
