....Tonight and Dec. 21, Woetzel, a Boston Ballet School alum, returns to his roots by dancing the role of the Nutcracker Prince in Boston Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker.” Woetzel has also spent the fall at the Kennedy School. He’s studying for a master’s degree in public administration, one of the rare students accepted to the program without a bachelor’s degree.
