More than 70 dancers from The Studio Inc. performed the Brentwood dance school’s annual holiday show on Dec. 20 in the Brentwood High School auditorium.

The students did dance routines to music from a children’s length version of “The Nutcracker.” One change this year was the incorporation of many styles of dance into the Nutcracker — not just ballet but jazz, tap, tumble and hip-hop.

The Studio Inc. is directed by Amanda Fedor and has operated in Brentwood for 15 years. It is located in the Hanley Industrial Court, 1332 Strassner Drive. To see its website, click here.
