SF Symphony’s Deck the Hall


With just a few days until opening night of Nutcracker, it’s truly starting to feel like the holiday season.  It’s a tradition for the Trainees to dance in the Deck The Hall performance at the SF Symphony. Last year, the Trainees danced the doll and bear dance, which was a definite favorite of all the children who attend these shows.  This year, the boys are performing the Russian variation, which is a high-energy dance full of spunk. The girls, on the other hand, are dancing Mirlitons, which is a delicate and playful piece.

There were three shows this weekend, two on Sunday, which were open to the public, and one today (Monday December 4) which is for school children only. It’s a great experience for us to dance with live music, by a world-renowned orchestra. It’s also a pleasure to perform in the Symphony Hall, to kick start the holiday season!

Here we are getting our costumes on in the School library

    I am merely an occasional aficionado to ballet. But today I saw the performance of Nutcracker and was absolutely fascinated. It is the best of anything I have seen on tv – ever. Dancers were perfect, marvelous stage, lights incredible and the dresses, the colours, the choreography, out of this world. I started wondering if this performance was French, English or German and I admit my surprise on discovering it was the San Francisco Ballet. The whole balance was “divine” and I enjoyed it to tears.
    Thank you ever so much!!
