The Royal Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA) produced their Winter Wonderland 2015 performances in late November at the Mandeville Auditorium in La Jolla. The show consisted of two main sequences: The Nutcracker ballet followed by RAPA’s official Dance Company Showcase. The combined performances added up to a two hour experience, featuring high quality and professional choreography, scenery, costumes, and backdrops.

The Nutcracker performance included the famous “snow scene” as well as excerpts from Act 1. The production also featured the entire Act 2. Following intermission, the Dance Company Showcase offered the audience a performance consisting of various dance styles including ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip hop, and more. A portion of the evening’s proceeds benefited The Monarch School for Homeless Children and Rady Children’s Hospital.
