NYC Ballet Dancers Join Hickory Ballet for The Nutcracker

NYC Ballet Dancers Join Hickory Ballet for The Nutcracker

Classical Dance
Even though it’s summer, it’s not too early to be thinking ahead to December and performances of the perennial holiday favorite, The Nutcracker. Hickory Ballet & Performing Arts (HBPA) students will present several performances of the beloved ballet at the Old Post Office Playhouse, Green Room Theatre, in Newton.
Thanks to a grant from the United Arts Council of Catawba County, two outstanding guest artists will join the production. Uma Deming will be dancing the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy and LaJeromeny Brown will appear as her Cavalier.
“Among their prestigious credits, Uma and LaJeromeny both danced for the New York City Ballet,” says HBPA Executive Director Leanna Bodnar. “We are excited that they are going to join us and that our students will have the experience of dancing alongside professionals. It’s a rare opportunity, and we are extremely grateful to the United Arts Council of Catawba County for their support that makes this possible.”
Uma Deming was named an apprentice with NYCB in November 2018, and a Corp De Ballet member in November 2019. Deming is currently in the Corp De Ballet at Carolina Ballet, as of this year.
In November 2018, LeJeromeny Brown was named an apprentice with NYCB and in May 2019 he joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet.
The Nutcracker performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on December 10, 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on December 11, and 3 p.m. on December 12. HBPA will also host a gala event on December 10, with details TBA.
HBPA enrollment is currently open to all ages. In order to perform in The Nutcracker, dancers must be enrolled by September 17.
HBPA offers a full schedule of classes. Visit or call (828) 328-3794 for additional information. The studios are located inside Foothills Gymnastics, 920 29th Ave NE, Hickory.
