Dallas Black Dance Academy will present the third annual Espresso Nutcracker, allowing viewers to celebrate the holiday in the comfort of their own home. The performance spins a new twist on a holiday tradition, as it is jazz-influenced by the music of Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite.

DBD Academy Director Katricia Eaglin, assisted by academy instructors of the Pre Pro Division, choreographed Espresso Nutcracker. Eaglin was inspired to use the traditional Tchaikovsky music and tracks from Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite, selecting Ellington tracks that were still recognizable to the original work. Narration has been added to the performance to unlock the mystery and magic for parts of the storyline. Eaglin also added an African dance to the Land of Sweets act that includes Spanish, Arabian, Chinese, and Russian dances.
