S8E3: Niya & Soni’s first Nutcracker

The Nutcracker holds a special place in many dance hearts. It can be the first professional show for aspiring ballet students to appear on the big stage — usually as mice. And it’s also often the most available ballet production for families during the holidays. This year, Fawnda was joined by Soni Dasmohapatra and seven-year-old Niya for their first experience with Shumka’s Nutcracker. It was pretty magical, especially after 700+ days since the company had performed for public audiences.

Stay tuned to the end for a special preview of the next podcast project Fawnda and Soni are working on in 2022: Kathak, Hopak, Hip-hop.
