About Sugar Plum Twist

Sugar Plum Twist is a Nutcracker-inspired Hallmark Movies Now exclusive movie that premiered on December 2, 2021. It can still be seen on the streaming sites.

The movie follows a former professional ballerina Natalia (Jamie Gray Hyder) after an injury ended her career as a dancer. She returns from New York City to her hometown in Richmond, Virginia to choreograph the local Nutcracker.

After a ballet student, Vivíana Serrano (Laura Rosguer) fails to get the coveted role of the Sugar Plum Fairy in the production of The Nutcracker, she and Natalia join forces to create a surprise reprise of the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy with a Latin twist.

In the end, both Natalia and Viviana accomplished what they set out to do. Viewers of the movie commented that Sugar Plum Twist is not a twist on The Nutcracker. The movie is so much more. There is a combination of ballet and salsa incorporated throughout the movie and is central to the storyline.
