Giveaway: Tickets to see the Hip Hop Nutcracker!

Happy Monday, mamas!

We hope you had a happy Thanksgiving and a fun weekend. Let’s get this week started off right with a giveaway! We’ve got 4 tickets to give to one local mama and her family to see the Dec. 22nd performance of the Hip Hop Nutcracker! These people can DANCE and the music’s great, too. Such a fun show, so much energy.

Here’s a short video to give you a little taste of how much this shop will be hip-hoppin’:

ABOUT THE SHOW: Heat up your Christmas tradition with an unforgettable contemporary mash-up of a timeless holiday story. A supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers combines with hip hop beats mixed by a live DJ and an on-stage electric violinist, turning Tchaikovsky on his head in the coolest possible way.

A spell cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer takes Maria-Clara and her prince back in time to the moment when her parents first met. Digital scenery transforms a palace of sugarplums into a modern, romantic setting in 1980s Brooklyn. If your family is more into break-dancing than ballet, this Nutcracker is the perfect gift!

  1. I am a grandmother of the most precious grandson, aged 2. I am helping my daughter by sitting with him while she goes to school and work. I would like register for the free tickets to the show. He would love the bright colors and music. We introduce him to the piano and music on a daily basis. Now that he is two, he can really enjoy everything now. Thanking you in advance. The Village Grandmother.

  2. My 2 year old dances whenever he hears any music (even commercials on TV) and there is just something so cute and innocent about his little moves that makes me want to dance too!
