I highly recommend The Nutcracker, A Yultide Ballet! I have taken my children, both college-aged now, since they were very young to other versions of The Nutcracker and can remember them loving parts of it, but being a little bored through some of the longer, classic, ballet parts. Having shortened those parts in A Yuletide Ballet , it becomes a wonderful way to introduce children (and some squirmy adults) to a this wonderful art form. The costumes are amazing, the sets beautiful and the choreography and dancing masterful! It is truly a great experience for the entire family and has become a holiday tradition for us. I am passionate about the importance of art in our lives, especially our children and think The Nutcracker, A Yuletide Ballet is a must!
