How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
What a wonderful little theater, what a delightful production. Others may have higher-tech stage effects, but this troupe brought the ballet to life with their passion, their choreography, and their precision. "Never work with children" is not a rule in this case. All of the youngsters in the company stayed both professional and adorable, both on and off-stage. I doubt that there is a bad, or even less than wonderful, production of Nutcracker within a hundred miles of the Southland. Westside Ballet stands proudly with them all.
