Live ballet performance for a 3 year old?

Jan 2009

I'd like to take my Angelina Ballerina-obsessed daughter to see ballet. I figure this doesn't exactly need to be the San Francisco Ballet, as she's only three. I was wondering if anyone knew of local performances that would be appropriate? Maybe even recitals at ballet schools? Thanks! Sarah

Too bad you missed the Nutcracker! Berkeley City Ballet will have their Spring Concert sometime in May at their studio. Tickets are limited, but if you call them, they can probably make arrangements for you. They also offer Ballerina Birthday Parties, if your 3-year old is expecting a birthday soon. My 16-year old daughter has been dancing with BCB since she was 6 and she plans to study ballet in college. BCB has been absolutely wonderful for her. You can find Berkeley City Ballet at 1800 Dwight Way, Berkeley, CA 94703 (510) 841-8913 email: berkeleycityballet [at] Good luck! Yuko

East Bay Dance Center's recitals are fun. The next one is on May 23 at Holy Names College. Contact EBDC for details, 336-3262. Debbie
