About this production

This production of the Nutcracker is anything but ordinary. We are adding a Latin twist to this year’s production while keeping the classical integrity at the core of the performance. With this production we strive to show that classical ballets are more than just an outdated art form, and they can be reimagined with an ethnically diverse background and new and interesting choreographic elements. 

We are extending an invitation to several groups in Las Vegas who provide services to children with special needs. They will come in to our, otherwise closed, Dress Rehearsal and be able to watch in a relaxed environment.

We will also be having two very special guest dancers: Flavia Morante & Jonathan Riveros joining us for this production, in the roles of Sugarplum Fairy and Cavalier respectively. Flavia Morante is a Las Vegas local, who is currently an Apprentice with The Pennsylvania Ballet Company, and Jonathan is joining us from The Fort Wayne Ballet in Indiana. In addition student, Mady Rae Certeza, will be the Sugarplum Fairy with Jonathan during the Sunday show.

The director and main choreographer of this production of the Nutcracker is Luz Morante. She has been teacher and mentor for over 20 years now and was the first person in Las Vegas to create a Nutcracker Production with an all kids cast, where the students are the focal point of the show. 

Paula and Jimi Jordan are the owners of Jordance Studios, which is new to the scene of dance studios in Las Vegas, only having opened its doors in March of 2018, but we are dedicated to providing quality dance education to children and adults alike. Our main focus is on Ballet and Salsa, so we have full programs for those two styles, but we also offer an array of other classes as well, such as Afro-Cuban, Jazz, Danzen, and many more. Our mission is to connect people through the art of dance by providing professional training with integrity, respect, and passion.
