Shirley Tang will be performing as the Sugar Plum Fairy for the Huntington Beach Academy of Dance's Ballet Etudes production of the "Nutcracker".

Evan Strand, 29, of Huntington Beach, has taken on the main male role as the principal dance partner with Clara and the Sugar Plum Fairy, in the timeless Tchaikovsy-scored holiday ballet classic. She's a third-generation participant; her grandmother sews costumes and her mother, Jennifer, is on the administrative team behind the scenes. "I dance as a form of expression", she said. "Last year, 2016, my dream of playing the role of Clara came true".

"The role is very challenging", Adams said.
