Allan Hancock College puts on 19th annual The Nutcracker

In holiday tradition, Allan Hancock College's Youth Dance will once again perform The Nutcracker on Dec. 12, 13, 19 and 20. This year's performances will mark the 19th year the college has put on the ballet.

The performance showcases over 70 performers and dancers from Allan Hancock College and the local community.

"Youth Dance really continues to benefit from, and appreciates the support of, the dance department dancers and staff," Director Cynthia Valenzuela said. "Many youth dancers graduate from our program and transition directly into the credit dance department classes at the college, and they love to come back to our Nutcracker productions.
