What’s the holiday season without “The Nutcracker”?  For some reason seeing the live performance truly invigorates the Christmas spirit, and this year’s rendition by Ballet Theatre Company at the Hoffman Auditorium at The University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford is no exception!

Jeff and Ryan had a chance to chat with Artistic Director and General Manager of the Ballet Theatre Company, Stephanie Dattellas, to find out what’s new for this year’s performance and how BTC adds some special nods to West Hartford to make this year’s performance special. In addition, we learn more about Stephanie and how BTC is doing local outreach to make the art of ballet accessible to more people.

Tickets for all performances of “The Nutcracker” from Dec. 12-15 are available at dancebtc.org and only a few remain so make sure to book your seat today!
