The Nutcracker is a Christmas essential. You hear it when shopping for presents; it’s featured in more Christmas movies I can remember and makes for the perfect background sound when it comes to holyday parties.

The talented musician decided to give their performance a modern touch so they’ve invited three talented dancers whom you might recognize from shows like America’s Best Dance Crew and So You Think You Can Dance?
