Moscow Ballet makes Christmas gift giving easy with the holiday performance that delights all ages…from the life-sized Kissy Doll to the fierce, red-eyed Rat King; and the Russian Troika Sleigh bringing Masha through the Snow Forest to the Land of Peace and Harmony which is populated with 10 foot tall dancing puppets, exotic flying birds and dancing couples from the world’s five great heritages.

Host Studio: Dancers Corner School of Dance

Dancers' Corner was established in July of 2010 by Mrs. Sandy Hunter Miller when her teacher, Lorene McAfee Patterson, retired and closed McAfee Ballet. Mrs. Sandy wanted to continue a ballet-based program in her mentor's footsteps. The other teachers from McAfee joined Mrs. Sandy in creating the new studio, giving the staff many years of experience working together as students, classmates and teachers. Their recreational classes focus on the classical art of ballet with tap and jazz to enhance the learning experience. They also offer ballet only & dance company classes for students who are interested in a more focused curriculum, including extra community performances.
