“My Daughter was Riveted!”

A huge thank you to Mommy Poppins for their lovely review of Ballerina Swan and the Nutcracker!

 As soon as the dancers took to the stage, my daughter was riveted.

A surprising twist midway through the show adds a level of drama that parents will appreciate, and yet another moment for a couple of age-old lessons, including not judging a book by its cover and remaining true to ourselves.

The show is also a great introduction to the Nutcracker story for little kids. You’ll see some of the most iconic parts of the holiday tale, including the epic battle between the Mouse King and the Nutcracker, the Christmas tree that grows taller and taller, and the classic Nutcracker scores

Ballerina Swan and the Nutcracker: Not Just for Girls!

“Our family loved the show. My niece could not make it so we were worried my son would not be engaged. According to him [Ballerina Swan and the Nutcracker] was for girls. But I must say the storyline and cast had us all engaged. We loved the twist. The black swan was the Nutcracker and a male. My son found this so fascinating.”

Gotham Love Reviews Ballerina Swan and the Nutcracker

Gotham Love came to see Ballerina Swan and the Nutcracker this weekend and gave it an amazing review! See what she had to say about Sophie’s newest adventure:

The story was very sweet and tied in the holiday classic Nutcracker theme. I loved watching her little face as the classic music by Tchaikovsky brought everything to life.

I could see my daughter following along with the story and I can only imagine what she may have been thinking.

My daughter has never sat through an entire play before, so I was a little nervous. However, the performance was so exciting she loved every minute of the ballet dancers on stage.
