Moscow Ballet's Russian Nutcracker
December 2, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- For 66 young dancers from the Chicago area, a dream came true on Sunday, December 2, 2012.
They get to perform with the Moscow Ballet in the 20th Anniversary Production of the "Nutcracker"! Four of the young dancers got up early to come into our ABC7 studio. Gracie Scott, Cassie St. Clair, Maggie McGrail and Mary Wielgos, all from Plainfield, gave us a live preview performance of their big gig. Altin Naska, Choreographer/ director and co-founder of Chicago's SPACE (Southport Performing Arts Conservatory), also came into our studio and told us about training with the young dancers and this big opportunity.
