Mendocino Ballet's Nutcracker
I just have to give a good reference to this year's Nutcracker ballet performance given by our local Mendocino Ballet, a regional dance company emphasizing pre-professional training for serious students of ballet. This year's Nutcracker features my daughter in the role of Clara:
Mendocino Ballet also participates in a cultural exchange with a ballet company from Valence, France. Members of each company spend a week training and sharing the art together (each year visiting the other's country). So, I hope to be visiting France sometime over the next year or so... and, I while I am there, I want to spend time with many of the Rebolers living in France.
