Christmas cracker of a ballet for kids
Nutcracker Australian Storytime Ballet

Get your kids into their tutus and ballet pumps, it's time for the best ballet show to entertain your tiny ballet dancers with - the Australian Storytime Ballet, put on by the Australian Ballet. This year, the story is none other than the Nutcracker, possibly the most famous ballet story of them all.

Targeted at children ages 3 and up, this is a specially abbreviated version of the ballet, with a narrator and interactive elements to keep your children fully engaged. At 45 minutes in length, it is the perfect introduction to ballet for little ones.

I took my kids to see the show last year when they did Sleeping Beauty (see my review) and was blown away by how engaging and spellbinding the show was. With beautiful costumes and music like the sugar plum fairy, it's hard to see how this won't be a success with your kids, and is a perfect school holiday show that embraces the Christmas spirit.
