Word on the Street

You've done it again!! The Maryland Nutcracker was a superb performance. The professionalism shows as each show takes the level of entertainment up another notch. The cast polishes up brighter each year. Our family has a long, almost 30 year, history of attending and performing in Nutcrackers and it never gets old. It is refreshing to see the originality that the Maryland theme brings. This has always been a great way to herald in the Christmas spirit. Seeing the reactions of my young nieces and their excitement as they discover the magic keeps the dream alive. We always look forward to the next show.

I absolutely recommend Ballet Embody's performances. I brought friends who had not previously been exposed to ballet. I think it was a wonderful introduction.

The Maryland Nutcracker exceeded my expectations! For a local company, the quality of the dancers surprised and delighted me.
