As a regular patron of the ballet and its annual gala I had the profound enjoyment of again attending a private rehearsal with 20 other people. It was an enthralling experience. The dancers are in the midst of a rehearsal and work within feet of...More

A lot of rolling around on the floor with very little dancing. Awful. Principal dancer did nothing except prance around. Why call it a ballet? It was like kids rolling around on the ground pretenting. Too much acting and NO dancing. $100+ each what a...More

Our first Nutcracker show. Such high caliber dancing, costumes and sets. The shows were sold out, which says something in itself!

the dancing was not that great. First half not so good, second half better. The best part of the show was the Ron Paily band - which should not be the case. Too long a ballet - should be max 90 minutes.

The music by the Ron Paley Jazz band was absolutely fantastic. The dancers did an awesome job and I'm sure they enjoyed dancing to the live jazz music. The evening flew by, and before we know it, it was over.

We just returned from a performance of A Cinderella Story. This is a fun ballet for the whole family, with excellent dancing, sets and music. The use of Ron Paley's Big Band adds an enjoyable touch. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it for the third time...More
