Kittiwake Dance Theatre, the province’s oldest not-for-profit semi-professional dance company, is celebrating their 30th anniversary with an audible bang! Kittiwake Dance Theatre has commissioned the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra (NSO) to accompany a special Gala Performance of our holiday favourite, The Nutcracker, on the evening of Sunday, December 18. This marks the first time in the province’s history that this classic full-length ballet is performed with live music.

Along with a full cast of local dancers from across the Avalon and surrounding areas, Kittiwake also invites special guest artists from Atlantic Ballet Theatre to perform the iconic roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier.

I interviewed my dad on video in his final weeks. When I asked about his work and finding meaning through helping others, he responded, “I don’t think you can be focused on, ‘Oh gee, I want to make a difference.’ It has to be spontaneous. If it’s not…there’s some kind of egotistical thing going on. That’s a red flag. You hope you impact people on the deepest level you are capable of at the time. Sometimes you hit it, sometimes you don’t. You’re trying. Lisa Shannon, A Thousand Sisters: My Journey into the Worst Place on Earth to Be a Woman
