Each year, thousands of novice, seasoned ballet audiences leap at the chance to see Nutcracker


Robert Taylor

No one could be more thrilled than a child enjoying "The Nutcracker" for the first time, except the dance companies that count on the ballet for more than sparkling fantasy.

This very San Francisco event places the beloved holiday story before the footlights of Broadway, and director Jadine Louie has mixed well-known show tunes with the traditional Tchaikovsky music. "You'd be surprised how well Nutcracker-style flourishes work in the music from 'Guys and Dolls' and 'West Side Story,'" she says.

'Nutcracker' keeps ballet companies afloat

Even if you've never stumbled through a single ballet class, the ``Dance-Along Nutcracker'' can make you feel as graceful as a Snowflake or a Sugar Plum Fairy.
