Dancing confections, soldiers marching into battle and dastardly rodents combine in a dazzling display culminating in classic fashion with a beautiful princess finding her handsome prince. For the 16th consecutive season, the internationally acclaimed Donetsk ballet company Dance, totaling 195 lavishly costumed performers, present this favorite holiday tradition. Four performances are scheduled Dec 12 thru Dec 14 at Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus NJ.
