**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE**
The Kennedy Dancers Holiday Showcase features performances by The Kennedy Dancers Repertory Company (professionals) with choreography by Diane Dragone to Handel’s ‘Water Music’, Dr. Larry King’s ‘O’ Gracious Light’, and Pachelbel’s ‘Canon in D Major’.
The Kennedy Dancers Repertory Company will be performing along with The Kennedy Dancers Inner City Youth Pre-professional Dancers; as well as students from The Kennedy Dance School in Ms. Dragone’s Caribbean ‘Silent Night’, and ‘Akiwowo’, music by Babatunde Ala Tunji. An added feature this year are several variations from the Nutcracker, including Le Promenade of Mother Ginger, The Spanish Dance, Chinese Dance, The Russian Dance, The Tarantella, and The Sugar Plum Fairy choreographed by Co-rehearsal Director Kat Reese.
In this year’s show, you will also see and hear both traditional and non-traditional works in dance. The Kennedy Dancers Holiday Showcase is not just a variation of the ‘Nutcracker’, but a cultural celebration of music and dance celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, and others…clearly something for everyone!
