YokoÕs Dance performs a Christmas classic
Submitted By Ohlone College
ItÕs Christmas EveÑa time of giving. Young Clara receives the gift of a nutcracker from her mysterious uncle, and is swept into a whole new world filled with sweets and magic. It seems all too good to be true! Is it all just a dream?
Performed by countless ballet companies since the 1940s, the Nutcracker continues to be a classic family holiday tradition. This dreamlike fairy tale, with TchaikovskyÕs beautiful ballet score, is the perfect way to celebrate the holidays. Experience the excitement of moving toys and treats, brought to life by YokoÕs Dance Academy.
Yoko's Dance and Performing Arts Academy is known for excellent choreography, staging, costuming, and talented performers. The group has performed at various events including the Indo-American Charity Ball, the Beach Blanket Babylon Scholarship Performance, and a variety of competitions. In addition, a group of Yoko's dancers performed at the London Invitational in 2012.
Yoko Young extended her nurturing quality to teach and mentor thousands of Bay Area children. She passed away in late October but her legacy lives on through the students she guided to great accomplishments. In her memory, a special performance with the Golden Gate Festival Orchestra, conducted by maestro David Sloss, takes place at the Sunday afternoon show.
Bring the family and celebrate the holidays with this classic Christmas tale.
