With live performances and gatherings too risky, many arts organizations have had to make artistic lemonade out of pandemic lemons. Normally, around this time, the Madison Ballet would be gearing up for one of their most popular annual events, the Ballet’s seasonal production of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet, the Nutcracker Suite. With a full production impossible, the Ballet company got creative and is offering a series of virtual Nutcracker Master Classes through Sunday December 20th. Madison Ballet School Director Rachelle Fochs, will teach a December 13th class on the Snowflake dance. Madison native and professional dancer and choreographer Zachary Guthier will conduct a master class on the Waltz of the Flowers on December 20th. Rachelle and Zachary joined Monday Buzz host Brian Standing on December 7, 2020.
