Do you love Redskins football AND the ballet? The Loudoun Ballet Performing Arts Company will be welcoming guest performer Josh Norman for their December 14 evening show of The Nutcracker.
Fresh off his stint on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman will play the part of an Arabian prince in the classic Christmas ballet The Nutcracker.
For those of you unfamiliar with the ballet, this is a beautiful, sinuous dance in Act II after the big battle scene. Most versions of this piece are extremely intricate, with plenty of graceful lifts to accentuate the mysterious, lilting music. Keep an eye out for Norman’s appearance in this traditionally athletic role!
DATES: December 14-16, 2018 (Josh Norman will be dancing in the Dec. 14 evening show)
