RACE Dance Company mentors 90 students from dance programs in seven Oklahoma City Public Schools for the sixth annual production of the Hip Hop Nutcracker (HHN). Show performances are set for 8:00 p.m. Friday and 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. Saturday.
“We've extended the invitation to elementary schools involved with Prairie Dance Youth Company. Attendees will be blown away by the talent these young kids possess,” said Hui Cha Poos, Executive Director of RACE Dance Company.
In addition, students enrolled at Southeast High School, Harding Fine Arts Academy John Marshall High School, Northwest Classen High School, Capitol Hill High School, Putnam City North High School, Oklahoma Centennial Mid-High School, and U.S. Grant High School will perform in the show.
Poos says HHN also advances RACE's mission to bring social awareness and change through dance performances and education.
“We bring kids together from different schools and different backgrounds in a non-competitive environment where it’s all about collaboration and inclusion. The result is truly magical – not just for the kids, the audience can see and feel it throughout the performance,” said Poos.
Set to high-energy music, and contemporary, hip hop and jazz moves, HHN tells the story of a young man, who searches for something missing from his life, only to discover that "it”, exists within himself. The take away for the audience is a message of perseverance, family and holiday spirit.
