The Land of Sweets
Decatur City Dance is proud to present our inaugural production of “The Land of Sweets”. With the holiday season fast approaching, what better way to get in the spirit than joining us and our talented dancers on a fun and fanciful journey.
“The Land of Sweets” will transport you to a magical realm where you will be greeted and guided by the Sugar Plum Fairy. The Sugar Plum Fairy presents a celebration of magical dancing treats from around the world. Starting with the sparkling snowflakes that summon the Sugar Plum Fairy. Then the sweet treats are called to dance starting with Hot Chocolate (Spain), Coffee (Arabian), Tea (China), Candy canes (Russia), Marzipan (Germany), Scottish Shortbread (Scotland) and then the magical Hummingbird Fairy flits and flys through the garden of enchanted flowers.
The Sugar Plum Fairy is a highlight as the elegant and charming ruler of the Land of Sweets. Join us and enjoy our show, as it is sure to be a treat for the eyes and ears and will leave you dreaming your own sweet dreams.
