Ballet for Christmas – Happy Christmas!

Happy Ballet Christmas everyone!

Here are some of my favourite treats for the holidays.  Enjoy – and don’t forget to share !!!

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was a big hit for The Royal Ballet and is now available on DVD starring Lauren Cuthbertson, Steven McRae and Sergei Polunin.

One of the best recordings of The Nutcracker, again from The Royal Ballet, stars retired dancer Miyako Yoshida and Steven McRae, with Ricardo Cervera (the best ever Nutcracker Prince) and Gary Avis (the best ever Drosselmeyer).

Snuggle up with Ballet News’ Christmas Cupcakes & Conversation.

My 5 top ballet reads of all time should keep you amused if it’s snowing outside!

If you have an iPad or iPhone (that’s what Santa has on his list, right ?) how about the wonderully interctively adorable Nutcracker Musical Storybook ?

Ballet Chocolat

A flight of Twinkle Toed Ballerinas awaits you at Hotel Chocolat. The chocolate is creamy without being too rich and it’s the perfect nibble when you are peckish between turkey treats!

Ballet Shoes

There’s only one pair of shoes that you need to see you through the Christmas and New Year festivities – if you can find them !

Miu Miu stores nationwide (if you are lucky). Yes, they are expensive.  But just look at them!

If Santa isn’t bring you these, sack him !
