NJ Dance Center Presents 28th Nutcracker at the Burgdorff December 9

At the end of the New Jersey Transit parking lot across from Able Baker and the post office, is the home of the New Jersey Dance Center, run by the Anne Krohley.

Krohley, a local resident since the 1970s, has been producing a Nutcracker Ballet with her students every December at the Burgdorff Center in Maplewood Village since the 1980s. The NJ Dance Center Nutcracker is a “child friendly one-hour long performance using local children with guest artists.”

This year, the performances will benefit the Red Cross.

“This is our 28th anniversary of this iconic ballet and has become a Maplewood tradition,” Krohley told Village Green. “In 1996 we were honored by the White House for our production.”

Performances are on Sat. Dec. 9 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. 

Tickets are $18 and available at the New Jersey Dance Center, 202 Maplewood Ave., Monday 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 5 to 7 p.m. and  Sat. 9:30 a.m. to noon.
