Busy Saturday Part II: A Fairy Tale Gathering

Before Christmastime last year, we went to a local celebration where, amongst other things, there were some lovely ballerinas performing some Nutcracker dances. I received a flyer for upcoming performances. I anxiously awaited their Fairy Tale Gathering, an interactive show just for kids.

Before buying tickets, I asked what "interactive" meant; if it was going to be kids swarming the stage trying to do pirouettes all at the same time, that was not going to be a great situation for E. Lucky for us, it meant getting a little out of your seat, clapping, shouting, dancing by your seat, that sort of thing. We were PSYCHED. I invited Grandma down to make it a super special engagement.

We LOVED the show--everything about it! There were gorgeous dancers, pretty costumes, fun activities, and even a tea party afterwards where we could meet the dancers. Sure, there were some kids who didn't understand that it was rude to try to squeeze by Elena, or jostle her too hard--but that was fine, and E didn't fall. We saw some familiar faces, and some of the dancers even remembered E from Christmastime!

E and the Sugarplum Fairy

E and Prince Charming

E, Mommy, and Sleeping Beauty

E, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Big Bad Wolf

Can't wait for the next show!
