a Christmas classic

The Nutcracker.

We pretty much live and breathe the Nutcracker from September to December thanks to my little aspiring ballerinas. The music is played repeatedly, the dances are practiced until perfection and the story is told and retold many times during this season and it never gets old. Saratoga City Ballet's Nutcracker will be performed this weekend at Skidmore College. Friday night at 7:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00p.m. and 7:00 p.m., Sunday at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m {box office 448-5049}. I took my oldest daughter to this performance when she was 4 years old and that is when she (and I) fell in love with ballet. She enrolled at Saratoga City Ballet 6 years ago. The school is professionally run by the very dedicated Julie Gedalecia and Eve Whelchel. Their passion for dance and excellence is seen in the show. The costumes are gorgeous, the set is magical and the dances are brilliant.

Take a child for the first time or see it again for the first time!
