Looking for a way to celebrate the Nutcracker that's fresh and contemporary? We've got your Nutcracker right here!

Jazz Hip Hop Nutcracker©, Momentum Dance Theatre's fabulous, original modern spin on the traditional holiday show, has been wowing and charming audiences since 2000. JHHN© tells the dancing story of transformation of two kids through the arts.  Music is Duke Ellington's excellent version of the Nutcracker plus contemporary and classic pop, funk, and salsa. Momentum's professional company shares the stage with our Jazz Hip Hop Academy students plus guest artists. Looking for a tree? Nope. Clara? uhuh. Mice and soldiers? How about Rats and Ninjas?! Our cast of over 35 includes some of the best professional dancers from New York and the DC area, and the talented kids in our Jazz Hip Hop Academy. All in all, not your mother's nutcracker!
