It wasn't stated on the description that this was a "Dance School" performance of the Nutcracker, so we were disappointed. However, for a Dance school they did a fine job of highlighting their dancers abilities as well as using good backdrops and...continued

It's a great theatrical ballet event, a mix of very young ballerinas (toddlers till early teens) who are just starting or learning, with some higher-level amateurs who can definitely dance their heart out. It seemed to be more like a year-end...continued

Absolutely delightful rendition of the Nutcracker - :); and the nicest one I have ever seen. The choreography was brilliant and the kids were marvelous. Thanks for a terrific evening out!

The overall production for its value made this a very lovely Nutcracker.

I found the dancing by the company to be terrific, even if there were some miscues. The Russian dancer did a magnificent job. I think the kid has a bright future if he...continued

This ballet was fantastic!! I cannot commend it enough! I actually did not know that there would be so many youngsters in the program, but they were all excellent! There was a very large cast of dancers, and a lot going on with the staging, but...continued

This version of the Nutcracker was the winter concert for the Daukayev School of Ballet. That being said, it was chuck full of children of all ages! The production quality was wonderful! The costumes, sets, and props were of a very high...continued

A very enjoyable, well put-together production. It's clear that this dance school is highly professional. The dancers are mostly school-age students, so don't go expecting the Bolshoi. That said, I expect that many of these students will some...

we loved the performance - we brought 5 kids ages 6 to 10 and they all loved it. Especially the costumes. For a student production it was really well done and professional! Even tho our seats were very far off to the side and up in the mezz - we...continued

It was not the best nutcracker I have seen but very good. We were disappointed that they did not do the scene with small children coming out from the man in drag's large dress.

I didn't enjoy this performance since it was done by a dance school and was basically a showcase that ALL of the students performed in. I admit that I am a purist, however some of the scenes were ridiculous. There were several scenes in which...continued

I have seen the Nutcracker many, many times, from different companies. This is easily the best I have ever seen!! I usually do not like a performance without a live orchestra, but this one was so fabulous and the sound system so good, I didn't...continued

It was a lovely performance, but not true to the Nutcracker story. It seemed to be more of a showcase with elements of the Nutcracker theme. Therefore, my daughter, niece and I were a biut lost during the performance.

The tickets/seats we were assigned were horrible! We could not see the stage because we had an obstructed view. When. I asked if we could be moved the usher was rude and said we could move all the way to the last row. It was dark and he did not...continued

This performance was truly heartwarming and splendid. Different from performances I had seen in the past but definitely in a good way. The children from the Maray Daukayev Ballet Theatre were precious and you could tell that a lot of hard work and...continued
