Just in time for the holidays, the Jupiter-based dance company will present two free family-friendly community performances starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 11 at Bicentennial Park at the Marina.

Set to Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s lasting and memorable score, the all-outdoor production will feature thrilling choreography by the school’s founder and director Jean-Hugues Feray (a former principal dancer with many international companies, including Ballet Florida and National Ballet de Marseille), and showcase the talents of dozens of young dancers, ranging in age from 3 to 18. The production is a condensed version of the full-length performances presented by the company last weekend at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens.

“We are ecstatic to give back to our community and brighten the holiday season with our outdoor dance performances of The Nutcracker,” Feray said. “It’s an honor to be chosen to perform at the Riviera Beach Marina’s fourth annual Winter Wonderland at the Marina.”

Presented by the City of Riviera Beach and the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, the Winter Wonderland festival will take place December 3 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., as well as December 4, 11, and 18 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Riviera Beach Marina Village. A fun-filled free holiday event for all ages, the festival will feature holiday lights, snow, free photos with Santa, train rides for kids and live nightly entertainment. A nine-hole miniature golf course and holiday ice skating rink are available for $5 per person.

Paris Ballet’s free outdoor performances of The Nutcracker at the Riviera Beach Marina Village’s Winter Wonderland will take place starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 11 at Bicentennial Park at the Marina. For free tickets and more information, visit HERE.
