  • The Mitten and other holiday programs

    The holiday season is upon us and I just wondered if any of you have gone to any shows yet?

    My son was in the Ballet Arts Center production of The Mitten last night. It was wonderful! Here are some of my favorite pictures:


    Before the curtain opened:



    The director's husband painted this gorgeous set. The dancer who played the boy in the story was fabulous.



    The Snow .



    The Dolls.



    The Bird.



    The Deer.



    The Fox.



    The Skunks. (this is my son : ) )



    More of the skunks.....


    ...tango dancing



    twirling the ballerinas





    My son's best friend and his dance partner.



    Two of the baby skunks peeking out of the mitten.



    The Bunnies.





    The Mice.



    Aaa-choo and the mitten bursts!



    Finale



    Ukranian dancing







    Make up and everything! : )



    One last dance from the bird



    The final bow:






    Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Would love to see any of yours from holiday shows! : )

    You sure had great seats!! Love the ballet! Haven't seen the Nutcracker since we lived up north and went to the Paramount (Oakland) every year then went to Jack London Square to see the decorations.

        What great pictures! The background sets are beautiful! The directors husband did a great job, and looks like all of the kids did a wonderful job and had a lot of fun too!

          Awesome sets! Great costumes! Looks like a "hit!" in my book! My mother was a dancer while grew up and so these shows bring back terrific memories.

          Thanks for sharing!

          My little school's Winter Program is this Thursday night. For years, I had to organize it, but this year--I said no. I can't wait to see it and ENJOY it without strings!

            Yes, my daughter did night of the living dead last month, and gearing up for the sound of music next month.

              Wow! I like the skunk costumes the boys wore - very James Bond! Your son is quite the handsome fellow (and looking more and more like Westley! ).

              The little ones are so precious! The baby skunks peeking out of the mitten - so cute!

              Is he going to do another production or is this "it" for him? I think he should do another round - it certainly sounds like he's enjoyed it!
              "But every night, when it gets dark
              and the stars come out,
              I'll look up on her behalf.
              I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                That looks like a lot of fun Anne! Makes me miss doing the Nutcracker every year (i danced for 10 years....). And like Trace said -you son is very good looking - and does look a lot like Ken! Did he enjoy it?

                    LOVE the pics!!!!
                    Good morning, son
                    In twenty years from now
                    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                    And I can tell you 'bout today
                    And how I picked you up and everything changed
                    It was pain
                    Sunny days and rain
                    I knew you'd feel the same things...

                          We were actually in Row J , 10 rows back, but my hubby has a good camera so he was able to get these shots!


                          I've never seen the Nutcracker in Oakland ...I bet that would be fun there and seeing the lights at Jack London Square afterward.

                          You're welcome. Hope this Thursday's show at your school is a hit. Be sure to post pictures if you take any!

                          It sounds like he is planning to continue which means he and I willl both be in the next show...it's Don Quixote and it's in June!

                          He and his friend both had a blast and they are both quite popular with the ladies now!


                          When you come back to the US, are you going to start dancing again? If you lived close by me, we could go to dance classes together and that would be a blast!
