Nutcracker Ballet

Time for another Bentz Family Tradition - this one is not for the fait of heart...  The Nutcracker Ballet!

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!

  And a Soldier & Party Boy

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!!
