David Choate's Hot Chocolate

After a sold-out run last season, David Choate’s Hot Chocolate returns for its third and biggest year yet.

Hot Chocolate is Cincinnati’s largest African-American Nutcracker experience, brought to life by Revolution Dance Theatre – Cincinnati’s professional Black ballet company. The soul-stirring story set to original music, Choate’s choreography, and stellar production values have made Hot Chocolate one of Cincinnati’s favorite holiday traditions. This year’s new music, guest stars, and special surprises make this one show you do not want to miss.
