Art League Host Delaware Dance Alliance

The Mispillion Art League (MAL) welcomed the Delaware Dance Alliance on Thursday, November 17 during their Third Thursdays event downtown. Third Thursdays is an outreach program of MAL, with art presentations offered each month. The Delaware Dance Company performed excerpts from their performance of The Nutckracker Suite, as arranged by Duke Ellington, which was held later that weekend at the Milford Senior Center.

“Michele Xiques and I have talked, dreamed, about doing a Jazz Nutcracker for many years,” commented Assistant Director Michelle Parisi.

In their version, Clara is celebrating her birthday with friends. They run into some lads on their way for a night on the town. The merry group goes to a 1940’s cabaret, where they are entertained by some amazing performers including Chinoiserie, Arabesque Cookie, Toot Toot Tootie, and Sugar Rum Cherry.

Artistic Director, Michele Xiques, choreographed this new show drawing from classical ballet, traditional jazz, swing, and a few fun twists. She used her experiences as a professional performer to offer a wonderful blend of influences in dance styles.
