Join HGCBT for our seasonal production
"A Winter's Eve," celebrating the season's holidays with dance!

December 16, 2023 2pm and 6pm

Kreeger Auditorium, Bender JCC, Rockville, MD


The Nutcracker, Land of the Sweets, December 2022

TICKETS $27 (no fees or additional charges)


A Winter’s Eve will unite a Christmas classic with broader cultural representations, transporting the audience into a wondrous world of seasonal celebrations!


In act one HGCBT Artistic Director and Choreographer Claire Jones reinvisions Raymond Briggs' illustrated classic "The Snowman" for dance! Join the Snowman as he explores the world with his young friend to experience other cultures celebrating the season, featuring Kwanzaa, observed through African/modern dance, Diwali through traditional Indian dance, and Hanukkah through traditional Israeli dance.


Act two features excerpts from the timeless and traditional ballet, Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker.” Step into Clara's dream, and experience the Land of the Sweets with our Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier! We will journey to lands around the globe through exquisite and timeless classical ballet.


This beautiful and exhilarating production is the perfect holiday event for the entire family!


HGCBT feels it is essential to make our productions significant and familiar to our entire community. In order to provide accurate representations of a variety of holiday celebrations, we have partnered with four guest choreographers to work with our dancers to provide dances that are entertaining and authentic. We hope you enjoy their work!
