Ballet Etudes Presents The Nutcracker 2017 #GIVEAWAY

Disclosure: I was given tickets to attend and to giveaway. All opinions are my own.


Ballet Etudes returns in 2017 with the 21st year of its annual production of the beloved
holiday classic The Nutcracker. This enchanting, 90-minute child-friendly
production returns to Huntington Beach High School Auditorium for fourperformances
on December 2,3, 9, and 10th. This year special guest artist and Huntington Beach native, Even Strand, will dance the role of the Cavalier.


The Nutcracker is set to the timeless music of Tchaikovsky and tells the story of Clara
and the nutcracker gift she receives from her mysterious godfather. During the night
magical events unfold as Clara's nutcracker comes to life and battles the terrible Rat
King. When Clara's act of  bravery distracts the Rat King and saves the nutcracker,
he is transformed into a handsome Prince that takes Clara on a magical journey to the
Kingdom of Sweets. There she meets the Sugar Plum Fairy and is rewarded with a
celebration of dances.


Isabella started asking in June when it would be time to see Ballet Etudes's The Nutcracker again! It has become and annual mother-daughter tradition over the last three years and I hope we can continue it for many more! Isabella is a dancer and has been in ballet since she was two and a half years old and she was smitten with the beautiful costumes and story of Clara and her nutcracker. She 
especially loved the Sugar Plum Fairy and was so excited to get to take a picture with 
her after the performance. We can't wait to see it again this year!
