A Wynne Home Nutcracker

SHSU Professor of Dance, Dana Nicolay along with SHSU dance students and alumni, will ring-in the holiday season hosting the fourth annual immersive production of “A Wynne Home Nutcracker." The popular Christmas ballet tradition, presented by Nicolay Dance Works, will take place at the historic Wynne Home Arts Center. 

Different from a typical theatre setting, this production of the holiday ballet unfolds in the surroundings of a historical home and grounds and adds to the experience for guests, according to Nicolay who serves as company director and choreographer.
