SARATOGA SPRINGS — Nacre Dance Group presents two dance classics this holiday season that unites dancers from various Capital Region dance studios with visiting artists. 

Dance festivities begin at the Universal Preservation Hall on Sunday, Dec. 11 - at 4 and 7 p.m. - with Christmas Oratorio. Nacre Dance Group’s production is based on modern dance pioneer Charles Weidman’s later version of “Christmas Oratorio,” which opened in 1961 to wide critical acclaim and has remained a much-loved classic work of modern dance. 

Weidman’s masterful choreography combined with Bach’s passionate music brings a moving portrayal of the Nativity this holiday season. 

The ensemble’s Nutcracker will also be performed at The Egg in Albany at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17.
