It was a perfect backdrop for a ballet performance. Several trees decorated with white lights glistened through the New Lenox Village Commons along with a gingerbread house, a large ornament and much more.

On Saturday, Dec. 7, five members of Ballet 5:8 performed “Beyond the Nutcracker” for residents who attended Christmas in the Commons. One dancer that performed was Sophia Snider, a New Lenox resident and Lincoln-Way Central student.
