Santa Barbara Festival Ballet's Nutcracker

nutcracker visit 2016

The Squire Foundation sponsored the Friends of Clara for 100 tickets to be distributed to The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara and Girls Inc. of Santa Barbara.  The performance was at the Arlington Theater on Dec. 10th.  Below are some quotes from children who were able to attend through this partnership.

"My favorite part of the performance was when the dancers went to a Christmas Eve Party and everyone got a present, and one of them in particular got a nutcracker." - Itzel
“My dream is to become an actress one day, so seeing all of the performers on stage was awesome.” –Briana
“My daughter had always wanted to go see the Nutcracker but we were unable to do so for financial reasons, but with these free tickets that we were given I was able to take her. Thank you!” –Veronica
“Last year in my Kinderfun class I learned some ballet moves, and I was able to see the dancers perform them on stage that day.” –Lia
“It was so much fun going as a family to see the show. We went last year as well, and hopefully we’ll be able to go again nextyear. Thank you for the tickets.” –Ana

Thank you so much for your continued support to our Organization. It truly is a blessing to be able to expose our kids to The Arts through your generous contribution. Each year I am able to take children who have never been to a ballet & the excitement in their eyes in indescribable so again I Thank You!!!
