Ballet Légere danced The Nutcracker ballet, Dec. 7 through 11, in seven individual performances, four for school groups and seniors and three for the public. The show, held at Dominican University's Lund Auditorium, was seen by an audience of approximately 10,000 people over the five days, according to Ballet Légere.

This was the 33rd annual production. The cast of 120 included local students of Légere Dance Center of River Forest. They were joined this year by professional dancers from the Cincinnati Ballet, Marcus Romeo and Bella Ureta, who played the Cavalier and Sugar Plum Fairy.

Overseeing it all is Artistic Director Donna Vittoria, who is doing the two things she loves most, teaching and ballet. When The Nutcracker wraps for the season, Vittoria choreographs and mentors dance students at her Légere Dance Centre.
