I took the kids to the Aronoff to see the Ballet ToyBox! It was SO much fun! It was under an hour which was just the right amount of time for my 5 year old boy. He loved the fact that the Alligator from Peter Pan worked his way into every dance! I of course thought the baby flamingos from Alice stole the show again! The Emcee was such a delight. She is a BLAST of energy and tons of FUN!!

Frisch’s Presents The Nutcracker, one of Cincinnati’s greatest holiday traditions, runs December 18 through 27. The Nutcracker was re-envisioned in 2011 by Artistic Director & CEO, Victoria Morgan, a success Cincinnati CityBeat says “strikes a delightful balance between light family fare and serious technical ballet.” The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s magical score live at each performance.
Cinderella returns February 12 through 14, performed for the first time in over six years, with newly refurbished sets, updated costumes and a brand new beautiful carriage. Cinderella is the classic tale of a hapless young woman who undergoes a magical transformation, leading her to find love and the enchanted life she dreams of. Victoria Morgan’s choreography pairs delightfully with the captivating music of Sergei Prokofiev, performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, breathing new life into the treasured tale.
Ballet Toybox returns in its fifth season, offering the perfect opportunity to introduce young children to the joy of dance on Sunday, March 20. The program features the Cincinnati Ballet Second Company in a mix of ballet and storybook classics. At under an hour and only $20 a ticket, Ballet Toybox is an interactive adventure where the audience learns about the essential elements that make up the beauty, humor and inspiring discipline of dance.
