The “Nutcracker” has been an RU tradition since 1982. Since 2006, this year marks Associate Professor Inessa Plekhanova’s fifth year of original choreography and direction, bringing together dancers, musicians, actors, artists and the local community.
Radford University student Kristen Jameson has had a very busy college career. She is the recent recipient of a dance scholarship and she has studied with the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, as well as the American Ballet Theater in Washington, D.C.
The RU Department of Dance is hosting three guest artists. Two are teaching a Contemporary African Dance Class and one is offering Modern Dance master classes.
