‘Horrendous’ Tap Performance of Nutcracker Suite in White House Video Roasted Online, Compared to ‘Hunger Games’

A White House Christmas video showcasing a bizarro tap dance performance of the Nutcracker Suite is being roasted online and compared to the Hunger Games. The video features a woke, “antiracist” New York City tap company tapping their way down a White House hallway adorned in Nutcracker-themed décor. Jill Biden posted the performance on X, Wednesday.

“A bit of magic, wonder, and joy brought to you by the talented tappers of Dorrance Dance, performing their playful interpretation of The Nutcracker Suite,” Biden wrote.

American musician Duke Ellington recorded the album Nutcracker Suite in 1960 featuring jazz interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s 1892 ballet “The Nutcracker.”

The full title of Dorrance Dance’s production currently being performed at the Kennedy Center is: “The Nutcracker Suite or, a Rhythmaturgical Evocation of the SuperLeviathonic Enchantments of Duke and Billy’s Supreme Adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Masterpiece That Tells a Tale of a Misunderstood Girl Who Kills a King and Meets a Queen and Don’t Forget OOOO-Gong-Chi-Gong-Sh’-Gon-Make-It-Daddy, and That It Ain’t So Bad After All.”

The White House performance included several androgynous dancers clad in garish sequined costumes with huge and elaborate headdresses. Their unconventional interpretation of the Christmas classic prompted comparisons online to the Hunger Games.

“What’s with the Hunger Games aesthetic?” wrote influencer Ian Miles Cheong on X. “Weren’t these the bad guys in The Hunger Games?” another commenter asked.

Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway also slammed the White House’s “Hunger Games Capital District Christmas approach.”

Others found the display offensively tacky and inappropriate but par-for-the course for the Biden regime.

“This should’ve come with a sensitivity label,” quipped Libs of TikTok. “This is horrendous.”

“This is a crime against Christmas,” wrote Trump advisor and “America First Legal” founder Stephen Miller.

“The corrupt clown show that is the Biden Administration. In a nutcracker. So to speak,” said Investigative journalist Jeff Carlson.

One commenter linked the wacky performance to the bag of cocaine found in the West Wing over the summer.

“Looks like the WH switched from cocaine to acid,” the person joked.

Another user simply commented: “There is something very wrong here.”

Dorrance Dance proclaims on its website that tap is a “subversive” dance form that is “rooted in protest and transcendence, improvisation and innovation.”

Their website includes a page on “How to Educate Yourself” about “white privilege, systemic racism, white fragility, and anti-racism” and  links to antiracismforbeginners.com, as well as books, videos, articles, speeches and podcasts to help white people “acknowledge” their racism.

The group also directs white people to an article on Medium written by the group Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), titled: “5 WAYS WHITE PEOPLE CAN TAKE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO WHITE AND STATE-SANCTIONED VIOLENCE.”

The group also calls for defunding the police, abolishing prisons, and quotes militant Marxist Angela Davis on its website.

Texas-based Republican activist Sarah Fields accused the Biden regime of trying to divide Americans by choosing a race-obsessed dance troop to perform at the White House.

“The Biden Administration is intent on driving a wedge between the American people,” she stated on X. “It is quite literally all they can think about.” Fields added that Dorrance Dance’s performances could be more aesthetically pleasing if they dropped the left-wing activism and focused more on the art of dance.

“Perhaps if these topics were not the number one priority and distraction for Dorrance Dance, their performance could have been less embarrassing and more artful,” she wrote.
