“The Nutcracker” returns for its 47th Annual Holiday Season. This year three students from Beverly Hills Unified School District are part of the ballet ensemble that pays tribute to the original George Balanchine’s classic. Beverly Vista Middle School students Jenne Shim (7th Grade) and Isabella Sullivan (8th grade) along with Hawthorne Elementary student Elle Shim (5th Grade) are among the dancers for the Westside Ballet of Santa Monica. These pre-professional (students in training) dancers will share the Broad Stage with seven professional guest artists from Nov. 30 through Dec. 8.
