Presented by Caroline Calouche & Co.

10th Year Anniversary of Clara’s Trip: A Cirque & Dance Nutcracker Story

Caroline Calouche & Co. is celebrating 10 years of producing Clara’s Trip: A Cirque & Dance Nutcracker Story. Clara’s Trip has quickly become a new holiday tradition for many in Charlotte. The show run will be at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center’s Booth Playhouse on December 15 - 20.

Clara’s Trip is a contemporary twist on a holiday classic. Artistic Director Caroline Calouche performed the ballet many times in her childhood and dreamed of inventing her version. For the past nine years, her adaptation has brought joy to audiences of all ages. Filled with athletic and high-energy dancing on the ground and in the air, the unique take on the classic story is the perfect holiday treat for your friends and family.

Calouche’s story begins with Clara, a beautiful young and single woman, attending a holiday party hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Flowers. At the party, she meets Beau, who quickly sweeps her off her feet. Clara is a passionate dancer but not the most coordinated. She trips, falls and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken. Her friends cheer her up with some gifts that come to life in her dreams. High-flying feats and breathtaking performances follow in this memorable cirque & dance spin on the classic Nutcracker tale.
