NUTCRACKER EXPERIENCE WITH ALEKSANDRA
Nutcracker Experience with Aleksandra was all that we had hoped it would be – a day filled with excitement, romance and luxury!
After traveling from as far away as Vermont and Kansas, the ten winners of the Nutcracker Experience essay and artwork contest arrived at Russian Pointe Dance Boutique at 11 AM, where I greeted them personally.
The day included a tour of Russian Pointe, decorating pointe shoes, a catered luncheon, and a limousine ride through Chicago to Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, for a matinee of The Joffrey Ballet's famous Nutcracker.
Winners also received gift bags that included an issue of Pointe magazine as well as a free subscription for the upcoming year, generously provided as a gift from Pointe.
Each Nutcracker Experience entrant had submitted an original response to the question, "How does dance influence my life?" The contest was open to girls and boys ages 6-15.
