Halloween is out the way and we are safely in the run-up to the festive season. But before London gets overrun with sickly decorations and hordes of Christmas shoppers, why not hit the theatre when things are a tiny bit less busy? There's a tonne of brilliant dance on stage this month, from a new work by BalletBoyz, to a jazz rendition of the Nutcracker, these are the dance shows you need to see this November.

‘Nutcracker’ season starts earlier than ever this year, but this sounds like it’s going to be a very different production of the festive ballet staple. In director-choreographer Drew McOnie’s production, Tchaikovsky’s score has been reimagined for a jazz band by Mercury-nominated musician Cassie Kinoshi. Even more audaciously, it’s staged in a pop-up jazz venue – the Tuff Nutt Jazz Club – that occupies the space under the Royal Festival Hall formerly claimed by the Spiritland restaurant and performance space.
