If you haven’t had your fill of “The Nutcracker” ballet yet, and don’t want the trek (or high prices) of Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle, you’ve still got one more choice. This Friday night Charisma School of Dance in Lakewood offers its version of the traditional ballet that’s “sweet and sassy.”

From the press release: “Because Charisma offers styles of dance other than ballet, it was decided to embellish the usual Nutcracker offerings with some appropriate tap, jazz, and hip-hop numbers. Charisma also embellished the plot a bit. Because ballet is so important to the dancer, regardless of style of dance chosen to pursue, we hoped wanting to be in “The Nutcracker” would encourage our students to study more ballet.”

The show starts at 6 p.m. Dec. 21 at the Mt. Tahoma High School Auditorium, 4634 S. 74th St., Tacoma. Tickets $15. 253-581-8711, charismaschoolofdance.net
