The Princess goes to the ballet - again.

Last year we saw the South African Youth Ballet Theater's production of Sleeping Beauty. This year it was the turn of Cinderella and we once again joined the school and some friends for the special dress-up and party Saturday morning show. It is a wonderful way to introduce kids to the wonders of ballet and the theater with a more relaxed atmosphere, snacks served in interval and a chance to dress up like your favorite character. They also have the option to meet the main cast after the show and have their programs signed. The Princess went as the Fairy Godmother this year, after being Sleeping Beauty last year. Look out for The Nutcracker next year - always fun before Christmas.


  1. Oh Cat...have said it before and I will say it again, she is SUCH a beautiful Little Miss. She seems lit from the inside. :)

    That last image of the two of you together is priceless. :)

  2. Wow, my toddler would also have enjoyed it!
    Beautiful photos of the Princess!

  3. That sounds like such fun for a little girl!
    She makes a beautiful Fairy Godmother :)

  4. I can't wait to take my girls to a production / show. Beautiful pics

  5. That just reminded me that I want to take Sarah to The Nutcracker this year. She's never been to a ballet. After her decision to drop out of ballet this fall, she just told me the other day that she wants to do it again next year. For now, we're going back to our old friend, gymnastics. :-)

    Such a fun and special treat for lil girls!

  6. Ag moeder jong, what a special time for you both.


So what's on your mind?
