After two long years, the sugarplum dreams for Beverly Hills ballerinas Jenne and Elle Shim are alive again. Sisters Jenne (14) and Elle (12) will share the stage with a total of 67 pre-professional dancers plus guest artists in Westside Ballet of Santa Monica’s production of “The Nutcracker,” which returns to The Broad Stage in Santa Monica Thanksgiving Weekend.
A 9th grader at Marlborough School, Jenne will debut as the center Candy solo. She will also dance as a Snowflake and Flower in the corps de ballet. Elle performs the roles of Side Chinese and Victorian Party Girl and is in 7th grade at Beverly Vista Middle School.
Principal Guest Artist Chasen Greenwood (State Street Ballet) accompanies the Sugar Plum Fairy (Santa Monica native Daniella Zhou in her professional debut) as her Cavalier.
Westside Ballet will be implementing a mandatory vaccination and mask policy.
