HagueAlways in search of creative collaborations, Imagination Celebration’s Kaleidoscope Dance Project has partnered with Catamount Institute for a Nutcracker performance like none you have ever seen before—outdoors! See the classic Nutcracker story as viewed from the perspective of animals!

This unique performance will combine arts with parks for an active dance experience celebrating the beauty of nature. The audience will take a walk through Sonderman Park at 740 West Caramillo Street to encounter some of the park’s inhabitants performing selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, including ballet and unexpected genres. All ages will enjoy this exciting mixture of nature and dance!

After the walk of waltzing wonder, the audience can enjoy hot cocoa, cookies, and nature crafts with the Nutcracker characters and a holiday Fairy Godmother.

Catamount Institute and Imagination Celebration are both honored to be selected as non-profits for this year’s Indy Give campaign in the Inspired Learning category. There is no fee for admission to this novel natural Nutcracker event, but donations to both organizations will be gratefully accepted.

Nutcracker in the Park will occur December 6, 2014, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and the variety of experiences will keep all participants engaged throughout, no matter the weather.
