All ages are invited to celebrate Christmas with the Moscow Ballet company of almost 40 ballerinas and danseurs on their 25th Anniversary Tour of North America in 2017. Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker is known for its award-winning Principal Dancers, lavish costumes in the style of the Victorian era, many backdrops created by “La La Land’ Set Concept designer Carl Sprague, and its Russian focus including life-sized Matryoshka Dolls, Russian folk legends Ded Moroz (Father Christmas) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) and Troika Sleigh. Adults and children enjoy the special effects of the flapping winged owl on the Grandfather clock, the growing 50 ft tall Christmas Tree, the Dove of Peace with a 20ft wingspan, and of course, the leaps, spins, and extraordinary moves of the company all performed to Tchaikovsky’s complete and incomparable score.

Debra Hendricks's passion for dance began when she took her first dance class at the age of three and she hasn't stopped dancing since.  Debra went to Texas State University to continue training in dance and acting.  She trained in modern, ballet, jazz, improvisation, and choreography.  She became a member of Orchesis Dance Company for 3 yrs where she trained and performed in many styles of dance. Her performance credits include the Julliard Concert at Texas State, as well as performances in the Dancer's in Flight concerts, Open Door Dance Theatre, Choreographer’s Showcase.  Her choreography credits include the modern dance pieces Make a Difference, which was performed at the 2008 Choreographer's Showcase at Texas State, and Dance With You and Chrysalis Perspective.  Debra has always given 100% in everything that she does and her goal as a dance teacher is to accommodate to each student’s needs, to challenge every student, to demonstrate correct dance technique, and to be caring and positive.
