Director’s Musings and Thank You’s


Welcome to our 5th annual production of A CULTURE SHOCK NUTCRACKER!

“For our 5th season, we’ve moved from a Hip Hop show to a broader focus. We will continue to use Hip Hop and street styles to tell much of the dance portion of the story, but our motivation is Pop Culture driven and we’ve added more dance forms.” This makes sense as Bunch was first inspired to create the holiday spectacular after seeing Janet Jackson’s powerful “Rhythm Nation” video one holiday season.

Artistic Director Bunch has infused this annual holiday theatrical with more  references than you can count on two hands. Starting with an homage to the beloved musical theatre hit Beauty and the Beast, the show takes audiences on a creative ride featuring Tap, Hip Hop, Krump, Contemporary and Popping while referencing everything from Star Wars to Bowie’s Labyrinth.

See you in January for another exciting show for all ages, everyone to enjoy!!
