What is the spirit of Christmas? Well, I think I found it – “The Nutcracker” performance by the Kansas City Ballet.

Recently I had the opportunity to attend “The Nutcracker” performed by the Kansas City Ballet. I have seen “The Nutcracker” performed, but nothing like this. It blew me away. For me, it brought fond memories from childhood.

This year’s “Nutcracker” performance by the Kansas City Ballet is sheer magic. What makes it even better is a lot of students from the Turner School District helped this magic happen, through the community engagement program of the Kansas City Ballet.

According to educators, those who study ballet are better students because they are more relaxed and in tune with the body.

If you want to see something worthwhile this season, I would encourage you to go see “The Nutcracker” performed by the Kansas City Ballet. It will bring out the Christmas spirit in you.

They still have many performances left. You can get tickets online at
