Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

NASHVILLE, TN - - Since 1989 the Nashville Nutcracker has taken audiences on a magical adventure and for  a 6th year the Nashville Ballet is back, bringing music city a twist on  a classic christmas tale. "What makes this different is that it's specific to Nashville. It takes place at the Belle Meade Plantation. Our set is designed to look exactly like does in the house" says Kayla Rowser, who has been part of each and every Nashville Nutcracker performance for the past 7 years, but she has actually danced in a Nutcracker production since she was eight! "I first saw it when I was 7 and the next year I auditioned and I have been in a Nutcracker ever since" she says.

If seeing the Nashville Nutcracker is a tradition for your family, this year you may notice there are more cast members leaping and twirling than ever before. "We have over 170 youth cast, 22 company dancers as well as 24 second company dancers" says Roswser.

While their moves may look effortless, Rowser says preparing for the show is a full time job. "We work 40 hour weeks."

In these final days leading to opening night, the dancers are making sure everything is on point, so they can once again bring  this beloved tale to life. "We hope people leave with their spirit lifted" for ticket information
