I grew up, as many, watching The Nutcracker every Christmas season. But because my mom was a ballet teacher, we watched it not only with an ear for the amazing music Tchaikovsky composed, but an appreciative eye for the dances that accompanied the beautiful score. This dance here is no exception! Such a cool take on a classic, with some super talented performers. Its from a few years ago, and features the California Philharmonic with members of the  "So You Think You Can Dance" and "America's Best Dance Crew" dancers/choreographers, Cyrus "Glitch" Spencer, James "BDash" Derrick and Kevin "Konkrete" Davis.

There's a short clip and then the performance in its entirety. Enjoy!
