I just happened to see a FB post for auditions for children's cast parts in the Ballet San Antonio's Nutcracker. So, my ballerinas gave it a shot. They both got parts!

What an experience we all had. Tons of mandatory rehearsals, lots of driving, hard work... but - what an amazing experience for them.
They performed in 7 PROFESSIONAL productions of The Nutcracker, side-by-side with professional dancers. They made new friends, and they loved every minute. I had fun too - getting to be backstage, and even in the wings of the beautiful Tobin Center as they performed.
Not to mention, the whole family got to see them perform, and attend a real ballet. A must see!!
