Studio West Dance Academy Presents Holiday Classic Nutcracker Ballet

first_imgSubmitted by Studio West Dance AcademyFalling snow.  Dancing flowers.  An enchanted dragon.  Extraordinary dreams.  What more could you want to help celebrate the season?  How about a magician for an uncle?  A grand holiday party?  Come enjoy all of these moments December 14-16 at Studio West Dance Theatre’s production of The Nutcracker.Wondering if there is something for every member of the family?  While it is a ballet, it also has a mighty dual between a prince and a king.  A Rat King.  The fight scene is replete with soldiers, mice, rats, and Clara.  There’s even a miniature model cannon.Coming for the first time?  The story of The Nutcracker is iconic, but the portrayal is unique to each production.  Here are some fabulous elements to watch for in Studio West’s depiction of the tale.  A wheel of cheese 6 feet across.  Clara’s Uncle Drosselmeyer way up in the theatre balcony and then just a blink later down on the stage.  A gaggle of Mini-Drosselmeyers (Mini-D’s as a nod to the mini-me character of Mike Meyer).  A dancing bear.  The flashing of fireflies in the night sky.  Life-sized dolls that pop out of enormous presents.  An Arabian genie who rises up out of a giant lamp, and dances suspended from the ceiling.  A working grandfather clock.  And a pair of white mice that appear throughout the story (have your little ones keep count of how often they are on stage).Is attending Studio West’s Nutcracker already a family tradition?  One of the hallmarks of the dance theatre’s production is the commitment to create change each year.  Says co-director Stephanie Wood, “We know that we are welcoming both first time audience members as well as those who come back year after year.  They return because of their memories, and we want to add to that- so there is always something new to surprise them.”A sleigh is being debuted this year, designed and built by studio crew chief Don Wood.  It is currently in the hands of trusted crewmember Leslie Brodie, and being decorated in her shop.  Not even the directors know what it will look like, “They are keeping it hidden away until the big reveal.  We can’t wait to see it!” says Wood’s partner Mary Cecelia Zechmann.Other details for the seasoned audience member to watch for?  Mother Ginger, played in drag and on sky-scraping stilts by Nat Boggs, has a brand new dress, all  25 feet of it.  And for the eagle-eyed among you, watch for the book Clara’s mother reads while seated on the couch.  Can you see the cover?  It is updated annually with the ballet’s production poster.All of this magic and so much more takes place at SPSCC’s Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts December 14-16.  Tickets are available under ‘Studio West Dance Theatre’s The Nutcracker’ at olytix.org. Facebook121Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Van Dijk scores winner on Liverpool debut

first_imgBut Van Dijk, who became the world’s most expensive defender when he joined the Reds from Southampton, headed home six minutes from time in the 230th meeting between the sides.“What a night,” said the Dutch defender. “It was thoroughly deserved, it felt amazing to be out there, the goal is very special for me and my family.“Playing at Anfield for Liverpool is a dream for every player. To score a goal is even more special.”Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp handed a debut to record £75 million ($102 million, 85 million euros)signing Van Dijk as he selected arguably his strongest available starting line-up, in contrast to the 1-1 draw in the Premier League played out by the sides in December.Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho was again ruled out with a thigh injury as speculation continues to mount over his future amid interest from Barcelona, while top-scorer Mohamed Salah was missing with a groin problem.Everton, who confirmed the sale of midfielder Ross Barkley to Chelsea in the hours leading up to the match, were also at full strength.The atmosphere in the stands crackled and on the pitch it was equally feisty. Wayne Rooney scythed down Joe Gomez early on and was shown a yellow card.Chances, though, were at premium in the first half as Liverpool dominated possession.– Liverpool penalty –The breakthrough came five minutes after the half-hour mark when Liverpool were awarded a penalty by referee Bobby Madley.Everton defender Mason Holgate used his arms on Adam Lallana, who had his back to goal inside the area, and the Liverpool midfielder went to ground.Milner made no mistake with the spot-kick as he dispatched the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with confidence.Klopp felt it was not a spot-kick.“It was a similar situation (to the penalty against Liverpool for Everton last month), the first one was no penalty in my opinion and this one wasn’t also,” he said. “It’s the same. There is contact and the referee used his whistle. Exactly the same situation.”Tempers flared when Roberto Firmino was pushed into the advertising hoardings by Holgate before referee Madley stepped in to prevent the incident escalating further following an angry exchange of words.Everton manager Sam Allardyce was more positive with his approach than the fixture last month, although the visitors found Liverpool’s defence, marshalled by Van Dijk, resilient and were unable to register a shot on target in the first half.Rooney wrestled with Emre Can shortly after the break and perhaps fearing a red card was in the offing, Allardyce withdrew the experienced forward.Liverpool continued to carve out chances but were unable to provide the decisive touch and Everton hit them with an equaliser on the counter attack.Yannick Bolasie won possession and found Rooney’s replacement Ademola Lookman, who showed superb awareness to break forward before he found Phil Jagielka on the edge of the box.Rather than shoot himself the defender laid the ball off for Sigurdsson, who calmly stroked the ball into the bottom corner of the net past the flat-footed Loris Karius.However, Liverpool sealed passage to the fourth round — and their first win in five attempts on home turf against the Toffees in the competition — with a dramatic goal in the dying minutes.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s curling delivery was met by Van Dijk, who towered above Jagielka and powerfully headed home in front of the Kop with Everton goalkeeper Pickford partially at fault as he failed to punch clear.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Virgil van Dijk (R) challenges Everton defender Mason Holgate during Liverpool’s FA Cup clash with their local rivals © AFP / Paul ELLISLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Jan 6 – Virgil van Dijk scored a dramatic late winner on his debut as Liverpool clinched a 2-1 victory over Everton in a heated Merseyside derby FA Cup tie at Anfield.Liverpool had led 1-0 at the break after James Milner converted from the penalty spot but Everton looked to have secured a replay when Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised midway through the second half.last_img read more
