Nutcracker Tea

ABAA started a fun tradition in 2016 with our Nutcracker Tea, a family-oriented event where attendees had the opportunity to meet characters from the ballet, hear Clara's father read them the story of The Nutcracker, and have a ballet lesson from Director Miss Ashley to learn some of the steps they would see onstage!
