Why Ballet Makes a Perfect Family Outing: A World Ballet Company Perspective

Hello, ballet lovers and aspiring enthusiasts! We, at the World Ballet Company, have seen countless magical moments unfold on our stage, but there is a particular kind of magic that tugs at our heartstrings: the sight of families coming together to experience the world of ballet.

Today, let’s explore why ballet, especially our Cinderella, Nutcracker, and Swan Lake shows, is becoming the perfect choice for family outings.

Our ballet performances provide a unique, engaging experience for people of all ages. With a combination of music, dance, storytelling, and visual arts, ballet is a feast for the senses. The universally understood language of movement transcends age and cultural barriers, making it accessible to everyone. So, whether you’re a grandparent, a teenager, or a toddler, you’re bound to find something that captivates you in a ballet performance.

Can Kids Enjoy These Ballet Performances?

The Cinderella, Nutcracker, and Swan Lake show, in particular, are family favorites. These classic fairy tales brought to life through the elegance of ballet, have a timeless charm that appeals to both children and adults. The stories are easy to follow, with expressive characters and plots filled with drama, romance, and humor. It’s a wonderful way for kids to experience well-loved stories in anew, exciting format.

Ballet is also a fantastic opportunity to introduce children to the arts. It’s never too early to cultivate an appreciation for music, dance, and storytelling. The Cinderella, Nutcracker, and Swan Lake show offer a gentle introduction to ballet, with familiar storylines and colorful characters. They can serve as a launchpad for conversations about art, creativity, and expression.

Moreover, going to the ballet can be an educational experience. It exposes children to different cultures and historical periods. The detailed costumes, the carefully selected music, and the intricate set designs all provide a glimpse into a different era. This can spark children’s curiosity and inspire them to learn more.

How Does Ballet Appeal to Adults?

But ballet is not just for the kids. Adults, too, can appreciate the athleticism and artistry of our dancers. The grace and strength required to perform ballet are truly impressive, and the emotion conveyed through dance can be deeply moving.

In a world where digital entertainment is increasingly becoming the norm, a live ballet performance is a breath of fresh air. It offers an opportunity to unplug, engage, and connect in a shared experience. There’s something incredibly special about sitting in a theatre, feeling the anticipation build as the lights dim, and immersing yourself in the spectacle unfolding before your eyes.

Furthermore, a trip to the ballet can be a memorable family tradition. Picture this: getting dressed up, driving to the theatre, and leafing through the program as you wait for the curtain to rise. It’s an experience that creates lasting memories and a special time to share with your loved ones.

The World Ballet Company is proud to provide these memorable moments for families. We’re delighted to see the joy and wonder on the faces of children watching Cinderella, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake, and the warm smiles of parents and grandparents who share this experience with them.


Ballet is more than just a performance; it’s an experience that can bring families closer together. Our Cinderella, Nutcracker, and Swan Lake shows are the perfect introduction to this world of enchantment and elegance. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our next performance!
