The cold weather may have you in the mood for a little holiday entertainment - and this weekend, The Urban Ballet Theater has brought back their twist on Tchaikovsky's classic ballet, The Nutcracker. This year their performace is called "Nutcracker in the Lower Continues..." (we're guessing a continuation of last years performance, some of which you can watch above).

The setting is the Lower East Side and the performance is filled with a variety of dance, including flamenco, hip-hop, and martial arts. The cast is comprised of students from the Abrons Arts Center's dance program and the Urban Ballet Theater's professionals.

Saturday and Sunday // 7:30pm // Abrons Arts Center [466 Grand St] // $15 (tickets available here)
