The Dance-Along Nutcracker is a one-of-a-kind, only in San Francisco kind of show!
Each year, the SFLGFB selects a theme to blend with Tchaikovsky’s classic Nutcracker Suite. The result: a fun-filled musical production brimming with wit, artistry, and ingenuity. Throughout the show, a large flashing “Dance-Along” sign signals the audience to tug their tutus on and pour onto the dance floor to pirouette beneath the spotlights with the cast. Even landlubbers who don’t want to dance have a blast!
Saturday, December 9th at 3pm and 7pm
Sunday, December 10th at 11am and 3pm
Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
