We attended the Nutcracker ballet at the Paramount Theater. The ballet was beautiful and Tchaikovsky’s music is our favorite. Unfortunately this time the theater sold popcorn and caramel corn in crunchy sounding plastic bags that people are during the performance. Our seats were not far from the orchestra but the sound of crinkly plastic pervaded our ears. Bad choice on the theater’s behalf to detract from the lovely performance.

"fix your feet"

“Everyone, fix your feet!” That is what Ms. Bonnie tells the kids many, many times during ballet class. ^_^ Clover really likes taking ballet. She wants to try the tap & jazz class as well next semester. I am not sure she is ready for two hours of dance lessons, as one follows the other, but I appreciate her enthusiasm.

attending the Nutcracker soon!

We bought our tickets for the San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker already! Clover is so excited. She already knows the story and the music and is in pre-ballet this semester where she will dance to some of Tchaikovsky’s music. My little baby will be five in just over a month and is going to her first theater performance!
