The Nutcracker Ballet
Dance! To Your Heart's Delight (DTYHD)
also held its 19th annual performances of The
Nutcracker Ballet, on December 1 - 3, 2023 at the beautiful Downey
Theatre in Downey.
DTYHD donated all seats to the December 1, 2023
performance to underserved organizations in Orange and LA counties to bring
the joy of the arts to individuals and families who might not otherwise be
exposed to the arts. They were so appreciative of this opportunity to see a
professional ballet and hear Tchaikovsky's great score to a live orchestra.
