Ultimate Dance Center's Ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas

Dec 2, 2017 - Dec 3, 2017
All Day

A stark departure from traditional holiday dance performances, the Ultimate Dance Center presents this homage to Tim Burton's stop-motion animation film through jazz, hip hop, ballet and contemporary dance. This is a colorful, expressive, creative show that emphasizes the story of being true to yourself.


  • Saturday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. 
  • Sunday December 3 at 2:00 p.m.    

The Ultimate Nightmare Before Christmas uses costumes, makeup and dance to follow the misadventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town's beloved pumpkin king, who is bored with the same annual routine of scaring people. Jack discovers Christmas Town and plots to take over Santa’s Christmas duties.

The production includes a cast of more than 60 dancers, ranging in age from toddlers to young adults, that includes many of the movie’s most popular characters: Skellington, Sally, Sandy Claws, Lock Shock and Barrel, Doctor Finklestein, and the Mayor of Halloween Town.
