  • November 14, 2007 Great music!

    The accompaniment CD has wonderful recordings that are true to the original Nutcracker Suite. However, I was disappointed when I received my kit and noticed that there were no staging or movements/dances written in the program. I had ordered the "Night Before Christmas" a few years ago, which is...

    also by Sally Albrecht and loved the music and the MOVEMENTS - it was a real pleaser to the students and the audience. However this one could really use some suggested movements. I've tried my best to come up with some movements to teach the students, but I'm not a professional dancer. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for showtime! I'm disappointed. I feel like I paid $85 for a $30 show kit.
