The ballet was lovely. Pictures with the ballerinas were sweet. Very helpful, knowledgeable staff. Very organized. My only suggestion would be to not advertise a "Sugar Plum After Party", which really wasn't a party and did not have cookies as advertised. The "Sugar Plum Party" turned out to be exactly the same thing as the before-the-ballet-red carpet pictures with ballerinas. So, in the future just advertise that pictures with the ballerinas on the red carpet will be available before and after the ballet, so we know what to expect.
