Just prior to the winter recess, kindergarten classes at Oakwood Primary Center participated in The Nutcracker Ballet.  They were taught their parts by dancers from Sondra Forsyth's Ballet Ambassadors.  The Oakwood PTA was responsible for bringing this wonderful company to our Kindergarten children. Founded in New York City in 2001, the company has touched the lives of youngsters in the metro NY area with an active repertoire that includes "The Nutcracker," "Swan Lake," "The Unicorn's Secret," "Romeo & Juliet," "Don Quixote," "Othello," "The Great Gatsby," "Firebird, junior version." "Firebird, senior version", and “Around the World in Dance.”

This year, Mrs. Borland's students were in the big party scene in which Clara, Fritz, and friends wait anxiously to participate in the Christmas festivities.  Godfather Drosselmier brings Clara a Nutcracker and the excitement begins.  They children enjoyed being part of this wonderful production and were so proud to perform for the first and second grade classes.  They are still wondering if it was a dream or a bit of Christmas Magic!
