Dance Dreams: Hot Chocolate Nutcracker follows a Black dance troupe that is putting on a revised version of The Nutcracker. However, this isn’t just any troupe and their leader is kinda legendary.
Here’s the trailer:
Executive produced by Shonda Rhimes, the Netflix documentary film Dance Dreams: Hot Chocolate Nutcracker shines a light on the work of trailblazing icon Debbie Allen and her reimagining of the classic ballet performed annually by the gifted students of the Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA).
To celebrate the season and the legend leaving these dancers in their quest to reinterpret a well-known piece, artist Tara James has created these images for your enjoyment. The film inspired her, and it shows in these images. Take a look at the gallery. You can find Allen and James on social media at Debbie Allen (@therealdebbieallen and Tara James (@bymsjames).
