For the last two months, dancers with Ballet Nebraska have been rehearsing their annual production of a holiday favorite-The Nutcracker.

"I couldn't make numerous rehearsals this year, so I showed up and Tracy (Bennett) said she wasn't anxious because I've done it so much", said Myers, who plays Grandfather Drosselmeyer in the Siouxland Civic Dance Association's production of "The Nutcracker Ballet". "Now, I don't need any aging makeup".

That's meant 29 years with Dance Arts Studio, being a founding faculty member of the Middle Georgia Youth Ballet plus 20 years as assistant director with Nutcracker of Middle Georgia Inc. "I was just 18 and very nervous when I arrived here".

Unable to sleep, Clara returns downstairs to find the nutcracker and toys alive and battling an army of mice. Catch them before the Mouse King catches you. In gratitude, the Nutcracker Prince leads Clara on a journey through the Enchanted Snow Forest to the Kingdom of candies. "I knew that if I was given the opportunity I would take it". And you were grandpa!

"I love the music for that part and I love dancing in a group".

Like the people who star in it, the show itself is reshaped a bit from year to year - but not too much.

Principal Artists for the 2017 Nutcracker Ballet include Kristiana Bell, Abigail Kiernan, Mary Ellis Ollinger and Zachariah Woods.

Like Myers, Noda has been involved in "The Nutcracker" quite a few times. Ridgefield High School seniors and Company members Madison Rucolas and Mackenzie Whitelaw will dance the roles of Dew Drop and Arabian respectively, and Ms. Whitelaw will reprise her role as Queen Rat for the fourth time. She started with ballet but added jazz, lyrical and tap, said her mom Erin.

"My first Nutcracker performance was when I was twelve, which was about twenty years ago", Alarcón said.

Jennika plays a tall angel and will perform in the second act. The aspiring ballerinas and danseurs, ages 7 to 17, perform in ancillary roles developed for their age and skill level by dancer, choreographer and Julliard graduate Mary Giannone Talmi, also co-producer of Moscow Ballet's North American tours.

"I don't think there's a community our size that does anything like it".
