We've been fans of CONNetic Dance ever since we ran into their fashionable asses one night at Tisane (we totally live there). We quickly dubbed the dance company "ballet hipsters," which they loved, and we're glad to see it stuck, even if our name didn't - unattributed quote much? We recently enjoyed the group's 80s dance party - they had killer moves and an enviable wardrobe. So we're sure they'll be bringing their characteristic sexy charm and creativity to this Nutcracker production.
We were gonna say something about "putting a contemporary twist on the Nutcracker," but it sounded kinda filthy, so we left that out. We've heard that ballet is like so hot right now, thanks to "psychosexual thriller" Black Swan and that whole "fat ballerina" controversy that's been blowing up the lady blogs. Stay relevant by attending the show Saturday at 2 or 8 p.m.
