The Nutcracker performed by body poppers is an absolute revelation

Dancers Glitch, Bdash and Konkrete provided a refreshing take on The Nutcracker at a California Philharmonic concert.

California Philharmonic Orchestra conductor Victor Vener approached three reality TV dance choreographers to liven up his Nutcracker concert – and the results are nothing short of delightful.

Cyrus ‘Glitch' Spencer, James ‘BDash' Derrick and Kevin ‘Konkrete’ Davis have all appeared on the US TV show So You Think You Can Dance? They were asked to reinterpret Tchaikovsky’s much-loved ballet in 'animation', a style of popping.

Watch the results in the videos below. The trio, dressed as soldiers, danced to March, Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy, Spanish Dance, Chinese Dance and Russian Dance.
