Tapestry Dance Company presents Of Mice and Music – A Jazz Tap Nutcracker! December 8 – 18 in Rollins Studio Theatre

“If you’re looking for something Christmas-y with a touch of modern this season, look no further than Tapestry’s production Of Mice and Music!” – The Austin American Statesman

Celebrate the holidays with the whole family and join Tapestry Dance Company with this Austin-tatious rhythm tap and jazz spin on the beloved yuletide story, The Nutcracker.

Of Mice and Music, which premiered to rave reviews and standing ovations last season, unites the company’s professional dancers with the rising stars of its pre-apprentice youth company Visions in Rhythm. This company and the children, youth and adults who study with its dance academy share a love for rhythm and movement that only Tapestry Dance Company can bring to the stage!

This contemporary twist on a classic favorite is performed to a jazzed up version of the original Tchaikovsky score and beloved jazz classics. This delightfully entertaining musical score is played live with some of Austin’s best jazz musicians, including Masumi Jones on drums, Austin Kimble on piano and Michael Stevens on bass.

Best of all, it’s only an hour long! That leaves you time to go shopping for those tap shoes…
