First Annual Do-It-Yourself Nutcracker

When: Sun., Dec. 9, 3 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 16, 3 p.m. 2012

It's December, which means performances of The Nutcracker are around every corner. If you're aching to satisfy your winter ballet fix but long for something a little different, come out to the East Bay Dance Center (1318 Glenfield Ave., Oakland) on Sunday, Dec. 9 and 16, for its first-annual "Do-It-Yourself Nutcracker." Taking cues from TheRocky Horror Picture Show , the show will feature scenes from The Nutcracker with the original music, danced by students and faculty from the Center. Many numbers will also involve audience participation -- from more low-level scene involvement to full-on dance sequences. The event is suitable for all ages and dance levels. 3 p.m.; $15, $8 for children 12 and under. 510-336-3262 or
