The Nutcracker, Nimbus dance works

 Dec 17 - 19, Grace Van Vorst church 7.30 or 6 pm
39 Erie Street
Nimbus Dance Works presents the inaugural year production of The Nutcracker! Retaining many of the essential elements that have made The Nutcracker a holiday classic for generations, Nimbus has reconceived the storyline to take place in a city not so different from Jersey City. Join your favorite characters: Mother Ginger, the Arabian couple and, of course, the Sugar Plum Fairy – all with a Jersey City twist! The production features professional dancers and talented (and cute!) youth performers from Jersey City Dance Academy and Next Step Broadway. For the program, Nimbus Dance Works will also present a new duet choreographed by company member Jean Paul Jr. drawing on influences from his upbringing in Haiti, and Six Chansons, choreographed by Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott. Join us in the intimate and historic Grace Church Van Vorst for what is sure to become a Jersey City holiday tradition!

Handmade Holiday Market, Jersey City Craft mafia

GAIA public art

GAIA has graced this town with some public art appearances,
very probably on legal walls.
If they weren't it would be stupid to remove the art.
On a side street off JFK Boulevard approaching SIP Ave there is this amazing piece
for the JC public.
