Barbara's Junior Group delight the crowd with the Candy Cane Dance
Ballerina's perform during the Nutcracker

The world renown Christmas ballet, The Nutcracker, made its debut in San Pedro last weekend. The show, part of the Millennium celebrations spearheaded by San Pedro Town Board and the Y2KCC, was presented by the talented dancers and friends of Barbara's Dance Group last Sunday evening.

    As the curtains opened revealing an elegantly decorated stage, the public knew they would be witness to a spectacular show and spectacular it was. As the narration of the classical Nutcracker commenced, the scenery intensified as the characters played their parts and displayed their intricately detailed costumes. It was very refreshing to see some parents of the dancers also join in the play. At the end of the first act, everyone expressed their admiration for the performance and anxiously awaited the second act. As the play continued it revealed much humor, many surprises and the finest performances by the dancers of Barbara's Dance Group.

    At the end, the crowd showed their appreciation with thunderous applause. For many this was their first time seeing The Nutcracker; for others who were familiar with the show, it was agreed that The Nutcracker in San Pedro was wonderfully portrayed.

     The remainder of the night's presentation continued with entertaining dances by members of Barbara's Dance Group who once again left the audience in awe.
