For Mairead Littleton, ballet is more than just a style of dance — it is a unique opportunity for self-expression.

The 17-year-old Frankfort dancer will take her talents to the stage this weekend in A&A Ballet’s rendition of “The Art Deco Nutcracker,” scheduled for Dec. 6-8 at Chicago’s Studebaker Theater. 

Littleton has several parts in the upcoming production — a colorful, energetic version of the classic “Nutcracker” ballet set in the 1920s.
