Momentum Dance Company. The Company has annually presented a full-length adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," set to Tchaikovsky's inimitable score, nearly every year since 2005. Several hundred dancers, young and old, have performed in the show over the years, and a select few can even claim to have participated in MDC's "The Nutcracker" every year to date.
"The Nutcracker" is a beloved tradition for Momentum Dance Company production staff and performers. The ballet's intriguing storyline, majestic melodies and fondly familiar choreography call to mind performances past, childhood dreams come true, and memories made with friends and family both on the stage and behind the scenes.
Under its new directorship, Momentum Dance Company is very excited to embrace its heritage and again present the ballet to the Irving community with all-new choreography, new costumes and a fresh take on the classic tale.
