Performers of all ages were encouraged to join in a dance-along production of the Nutcracker this weekend.

Participants could break out their "tutus" and release their inner 'sugar plum fairies' or toy soldiers at the Chicago Cultural Center.

First, the dancers were invited to a workshops so they could practice. Members of Art Reaching Children of Chicago taught basic ballet positions and movements.

Then, the dancers were invited to show their stuff during two performances.
