New Orleans, LA - This holiday season, bring the whole family to experience NOBA's annual holiday presentation of The Nutcracker Suite. Performances will take place on Sunday, December 4, at 3PM and 6PM at Tulane University's Dixon Hall. The production features over 200 local participants of the nationally award-winning NORDC/NOBA Center for Dance programs for youth and senior citizens, along with students of NOBA's free after-school partnership programs with Broadmoor Arts and Wellness Program (Orleans Parish) and Kenner Discovery Health Sciences Academy (Jefferson Parish). Tickets for The Nutcracker Suite are $10 for children and $15 for adults and can be purchased online at www.nobadance.com, by phone at 504-522-0996 or in person at 935 Gravier Street, Suite 800, New Orleans, LA 70112.

"This very special intergenerational production gives our community dance program participants, both youth and senior citizens, the opportunity to showcase their talents on stage together in a timeless classic that the whole family can enjoy," says New Orleans Ballet Association Executive Director Jenny Hamilton. "We extend our deepest gratitude to the Newcomb Dance Program, Tulane University Department of Theatre and Dance, for making this holiday production possible."

Through partnerships with community organizations, New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA) offers year-round, tuition-free dance programming to ages 3-80+ at 12 sites in three parishes. For The Nutcracker Suite, each participating community center or school where classes are taught is assigned a part (angels, mice, soldiers, etc.), and students learn choreography from their respective instructors during the fall. All students come together for the first time the day before the performance for rehearsals at Tulane University. This unique, intergenerational production features Center for Dance's Pre-Professional Program students in soloist roles such as Sugarplum and Snow Queen and Senior Dance Fitness Program participants in a special Grandparents dance in the opening scene.

For more information about NOBA's community dance programs or upcoming performances, please visit www.nobadance.com or call
