Nutcracker and Ugly Sweater Party This Weekend at the Wadsworth in Hartford
The holidays are hectic enough between parties you want to attend, parties you don’t want to attend, parties you don’t want to attend - but there’s an open bar so attendance is mandatory - shopping, relatives... the list goes on and on. Do yourself a favor this season and cover two classic holiday traditions – the ugly sweater party and the Nutcracker – in the same fabulous afternoon. CONNetic Dance’s edgy rendition of the Nutcracker will fill you with cheer without activating your cheesy alarm. In addition to the classical ballet moves and Tchaikovsky score, the audience will be treated to jazz, a sexy hip hop Sugar Rum and the dance troupe’s signature Florette – a high kicking waltz that is reminiscent of the Rockettes.
