Nutcracker Cast: Meet Moriah

Moriah Jones has been dancing for ten years. She will be dancing Dew Drop Fairy, Snow and Side Arabian in North Atlanta Dance Theatre’s 2018 presentation of The Nutcracker.

We asked Moriah to answer a few questions about her role in this year’s delightful staging of the holiday classic:

What are you most excited about in this year’s staging of The Nutcracker?
I am most excited for the first scene of second act.

Tell us what dancing these roles means to you?
This Nutcracker, I will be performing my first lead roll in a ballet performance, and this will probably be the last time I will perform in the Nutcracker as I will be transitioning to college next year.

Why do you think this ballet has become such a holiday tradition?
I believe the music in this ballet is why it is so well known and liked today. The ballet starts with a Christmas scene and is colorful and bright making it perfect to bring an audience into the holiday spirit.

Why should people choose our show over others in the Atlanta area?
Families should choose NADT Nutcracker over other Nutcracker shows because it is a high quality ballet and more affordable than most professional performances.
