This dance production combined the classic and comtemporary with a holiday flair that was magical. If you want Christmas Ballet but are weary of the Nutcracker, this is a wonderful alternative. The classic and contemporary music was matched beautifully with each dance. It was mesmerising to watch these excellent dancers make such athletic and artistic movements look effortless. I kept thinking how hard each of them has to work to give us that illusion. I highly recommend experiencing this performance.

The first half was more traditional classical Christmas ballet.. Some acts were returns from previous years... Went a bit too long with the classical. After intermission, the fun jazz dancing is what I really enjoyed...
