It was amazing!! Great costumes, talented dancers, nice venue, beautiful performance....I loved the Arabian dancer the most! Everything was awesome! More than I expected. I only wish they had coffee! I highly recommend it.

This Nutcracker is done by a dance school with dancers of varying experience levels. This makes it a different experience from the Nutcrackers done by professional groups. It was great fun to watch kids of all ages and adults dancing together...continued

We saw it last year so knew what to expect. As long as you understand it's children and mostly just their families watching you can have fun. The first half is a bit boring, but it's fun to watch the kids. It's like going to a school play to...continued

I enjoyed the show. You should have some kind of arrangement so people with small children can aslo watch from lobby. There was TV but it was not clear picture. It is difficult to stay2 hours with small children fro morethan 1 houres.

The beginning of the ballet was slow and confusing, but the second half was wonderful!

The first half was the one of the single worst performances I have ever seen. About a quarter of the audience left at the intermission. Second half was much better. I had expected a better quality performance.

This was a very nice rendition of The Nutcracker. The costumes and sets were beautiful and the dancers were skilled and entertaining. There were a few surprises mixed in - like acrobats and break dancers - so it made it more fun for the younger...continued
