I feel like we cheated on Hudson Conservatory of Ballet today because Grace and I attended the other local Nutcracker performance. But it has been our tradition for the last five years, so we really couldn't miss it.
This performance by the Ballet Theatre of Ohio has been going on for over 20 years. There are many local dancers of all ages and they always have professional guest dancers. After going for 5 years, we recognize some of the regulars!
We love going to the Civic Theater, which is old, beautiful, and makes the whole experience a little magical.
Thanks, Nana and Ba, for adding another nutcracker to Grace's collection. She has four now since the first year - when she was 3 years old - she was afraid of them!
