"As always, I enjoyed the show so much. Excellent choreography adapted to our student capabilities and age, beautiful special effects, and costumes. I particularly liked the duo that performed the Arabian dance. I believe that the girl has beautiful legs, back, and feet. With a little of more confidence she could be superb. The students made so much progress. Isabella is absolutely stunning especially considering her age!!! Catherine seems engaged and I appreciated her acting skills too. Great job and thank you for being the great teachers to Catherine!"
"Every season my daughter and I go to see The Nutcracker, somewhere, Palm Beach, Treasure Coast,etc. This year my daughter was so booked up, the only date available was the 14th and I started with the Sunrise Theatre, which I love. I was disappointed that your show was the only show she would be able to attend, so I said it's not the type of show we usually attend but she said she would still like to go. We invited her best friend, who was her maid of honor this year. The Nutcracker is special to us because my daughter being born on Dec. 18th and me Dec. 25th when she was born she got her first Nutcracker show. She is now 26 and has over 50 Nutcrackers in her collection! We love the music, and we love the ballet. We have to say, last night's show was one of THE MOST AMAZING shows we have been to so far! BRAVO!!! The stage and backgrounds were amazing, the performers were so good, the children were adoreable, the props were great. We will definitely make this a yearly event! Thank you so much for a truly amazing evening. Both girls had the best time and we were able to continue on with our tradition thanks to your studio. 5 stars."
We love seeing new faces, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
