This Thanksgiving weekend the Atlantic City Ballet will be bringing back It’s A Shore Holiday to help kick off the holiday season. It’s A Shore Holiday blends classical and contemporary dance set to beloved holiday tunes. This “Radio Cityesque” review will feature the AC Ballet Professional company along with live singers and a six piece band. Although The Nutcracker will always remain a holiday staple in the ballet’s repertoire, this production allows those who may never entertain the idea of going to the ballet a chance to see for themselves what it’s like. Phyllis Papa, AC Ballet’s Artistic
Director can attest to that. “It really showcases the company’s versatility because there is all forms of dance incorporated throughout the show. We love to be able to bring ballet to people in ways they may not have imagined”.
This production first premiered in 2013 and was such a hit, that the company thought it would be a great way to start the holidays every year. Appropriate for the entire family, there is something for everyone including dancing snowmen, chipmunks, aerialists and toy soldiers who perform their entire routine on pointe. It’s A Shore Holiday will be sure to capture audience’s imagination of every age. It’s a one of a kind celebration for the entire family and a holiday tradition you’ll want to see again and again.
