Show is only 45 minutes so try to get street parking rather than pay for a ramp.

Great concept and way to introduce yourng audiences to ballet. My daughters were on the older side in the audience, but I wanted them to see this first before sitting through a full length production. They enjoyed it and are up to more.

Great length for small children. Brought 3 2-year-olds and all were able to sit still and enjoy the production.
