Blue Ivy took to the stage in Debbie Allen's Christmas extravaganza "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker."
Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z's oldest child, Blue Ivy, proved that being an entertainer is in her blood, starring in Debbie Allen's "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker"
Blue Ivy had already claimed her stake as a singer/ songwriter with credit in mom's hit "Brown Skin Girl," now she's proved she can dance like a pro.
Debbie Allen was inspired by her son to create her own version of the world-wide Christmas favorite, "The Nutcracker"

BLUE IVY ATTENDS DEBBY ALLAN'S DANCE ACADEMY
"CHOCOLATE NUTCRACKER'S" VOYAGE THROUGH MUSIC AND MAGIC
The "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" in which Blue Ivy dances tells the story of a little girl called Cara who gets a hot chocolate nutcracker for Christmas and is taken on a Christmas adventure through Toyland, Candy Cane Land, the Rainforest, Bollywood, Egypt, the South Pole by three naughty rats.
The show which ran from December 6 to December 8 to full houses, donates the full proceeds of the box office to arts education for youth in the greater Los Angeles area.
Apart from the shows which welcomed patrons of all ages, the "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" also played exclusively for schools on December 4, 5 and 6.
We are sure that cheering Blue Ivy on in the audience were two very proud celebrity parents...
DEBBIE ALLEN'S "HOT CHOCOLATE NUTCRACKER"
Emmy Award winner and Tony nominee Debbie Allen was inspired by her son to create her own version of the world-wide Christmas favorite, "The Nutcracker," and "Hot Chocolate Nutcracker" was born.
Unlike Tchaikovsky's original classic, in Debbie's version, the rats take over the story completely, creating pandemonium - and fun.
The 2019 presentation marks the 10th anniversary of the show, which was written, directed, and choreographed by Debbie, and presented by the Debbie Allen Dance Academy.
This year's gala performance will feature as special guest stars Danny Glover, Phylicia Rashad, Jenifer Lewis, Nigel Lythgoe, Shemar Moore, and Taylour Paige - and of course, Blue Ivy Carter.
