I would like to congratulate you and the girls [and boys] for a wonderful performance of the Nutcracker. Myself and my family really enjoyed the performance and thought the choreography and performance by the girls was presented in a a truly professional manner.
Once again congratulations.
What a great show – the girls [and boys] are amazing, a credit to you. Well done. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests.
Congratulations on a wonderful show last night. My family and friends all thought it was fantastic, the costumes, the sets, of course the girls and the boys did a wonderful job. How far have the Certificate III & IV girls come! All the hard work has been worth it. Once again CONGRATULATIONS!!!
La Fille Mal Gardee 2008
I wanted to tell you…that… from an artistic, creative and entertainment point of view you should be extremely proud of what you have achieved. From a parents point of view both Steven and I were not only very proud but also very impressed with the performance.
Cinderella was certainly the best that Essentially Ballet has ever produced with such gracious and talented cast members.Congratulations Linda McKay on your outstanding direction!
