russian nutcrackerMoscow Ballet will present its Great Russian Nutcracker performance at the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg on December 27th 2009 at 3PM

Set against Valentin Fedorov's spectacular hand-painted backdrops and life-sized dancing puppets, the Great Russian Nutcracker delights audiences with a visual tapestry rich in detail and whimsy.  It is especially distinctive for its unique setting of Act II in the “Land of Peace and Harmony” and for the introduction of a new character, a Christmas Dove.  New this year is a fantasy clock with wings of an owl that cast a shadow over the battle between the Soldiers and the Mice.

Can a county commissioner rumba?  Can a fire chief tango?  See Pinellas County officials strut their stuff on the dance floor as part of Palm Harbor’s first Citrus Festival.

Palm Harbor, FL (April 14, 2009) -  As Dancing with the Stars returned to ABC last month, the celebrities of Palm Harbor hit the dance floor at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in the Fountains Plaza to start preparing for their very own Dancing with the Palm Harbor Stars! County Commissioner Susan Latvala, Fire Chief Jim Angle and Head of the Pinellas County School board Peggy O’Shea will be competing in the Rumba, Tango, and Foxtrot at Palm Harbor’s first annual Citrus Festival, an exciting new event celebrating the heritage of Palm Harbor through music, activities, and, of course, citrus.

Each local celebrity learns the art of ballroom dancing on Arthur Murray’s 2,000+ square foot floating dance floor with their Arthur Murray professional partner. “I’m glad she has plenty of patience,” said Fire Chief Angle of his professional partner, Lania Berger, “Because learning the steps to the rhythm of the music is challenging for a guy who has no rhythm.”

O'Shea and Latvala are also excited to have the opportunity to work with their professional Arthur Murray partner, David Schmidt. “It is fun, and you get a great feeling of accomplishment,” said Latvala.

“This is going to be quite a competition,” said Lania Berger, owner of the Arthur Murray Dance Studio, located on HWY 19 in Palm Harbor.  “All three of our stars are doing a fantastic job with their choreography, as well as becoming lovely social dancers. I’m glad it’s the audience voting, because I think all three are deserving of a mirror ball trophy!”
