Rockville Centre Nutcracker performance excites
Leggz Ltd. and the Rockville Centre Guild for the Arts performed the traditional holiday play, The Nutcracker.
The performances, Dec. 7-9, were sold out and the audience gave standing ovations at all three. Professional guest artists and local young dancers put on the performance.
The Leggz Ltd. Nutcracker is an annual holiday treat for ballet enthusiasts.
Under the Artistic Direction of Joan
MacNaughton, this classic not only featured professional dancers, but also is the only full length Nutcracker Ballet on Long Island with a live orchestra, the South Shore Symphony, under the baton of Scott Jackson Wiley.
The 70-piece orchestra accompanied a ballet cast of over 100 dancers.
