For your little one who dreams of appearing on stage in pointe shoes, leotards, and tutus, spend an evening reveling in the glory of the National Ballet of Canada at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. This classical ballet company fills its iconic productions, including The Nutcracker, Cinderella, Swan Lake, and Alice in Wonderland, with perfect pirouettes and astounding arabesques, inspiring awe in audiences of any age. On show nights, the entire theatre is decked out to theme, so be sure to snap a photo of your kids’ beaming faces in the beautifully decorated foyer before heading inside. Concession stands and rest rooms are conveniently located on each of the theatre’s five levels, and a special program allows guests to order their intermission snacks ahead of time so you can skip the lines and make the most of the show’s 25-minute break. Once you return home and spot your kids practicing their plies before dinner every night for a week, look into the National Ballet’s YOU program, designed to introduce students to dance through free workshops and exclusive performances. You may be seeing your own prima ballerina onstage at the Four Seasons Centre before too long.
