Where’s Amy attends IBC’s ‘The Nutcracker’


Where’s Amy gives a 10-star salute to the Indiana Ballet Conservatory for its spectacular four-day, sold-out performances of “The Nutcracker” at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. From start to finish, these young dancers shined and dazzled the audience. One fun fact about the IBC’s “Nutcracker” is it brought in Boston Ballet’s own Lasha Khozashvili for his seventh time dancing with the students. It also was exciting to see students of all ages dance gracefully alongside faculty members Sergey Sergiev and Hailey Agran. Trust me, IBC is full of rising young professional students who are the stars of tomorrow. The dancing, colorful costumes, traditional Russian set designs and lighting created a magical feeling that soared throughout the theater in every dance and song. Kudos to IBC lead dancers and Carmel residents Alexandra Manuel, Quinn Starner and Rickao Suzuki who traded off nights to perform as the Sugar Plum Fairy. The entire cast and crew played an important role making IBC’s “Nutcracker” a true crowd favorite this holiday season. For more, vist indianaballetconservatory.org
