Ballet Afrique, Austin’s first all-Black en pointe dance company, is excited to present Duke Ellington’s: The Nutcracker Suite in a 7 p.m. performance on Saturday, February 19 at The Paramount Theatre. The production, which is set in Harlem during the Harlem Renaissance period of the 1920s and 30s, promises to be a grand spectacle of opulence and a positively joyous treat for the entire family.
