California-based choreographer-dancer Tandy Beal describes some recent projects, among them a children's dance performance involving the participation of 200 children; her version of The nutcracker, which includes jugglers, roller skaters, and Mexican folk dancing; and her piece Mer people, presented on the beach at Santa Cruz.
