Little Mercedes was a winner of Pediatric Alliance’s contest for tickets to the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s sensory-friendly performance of The Nutcracker over the holidays and she took her older brother and her parents with her!  Her mom says the event was wonderful:

We had a great time. Anthony liked the first act — the Christmas party with showing all the gifts. Mercedes loved the solo with the ballerina in the second act. She loved the music and stood up and started dancing.  It was very cute see her having fun and enjoying the music!



We went for dinner afterwards. It was a magical night and a really good family time. The ballet and the sponsor did a very good job. Giving the kids sensorial toys was very helpful for Mercedes.



And of course, to Pediatric Alliance — Thanks!



We thank Mercedes and her family for sharing their experience with all of us!

Next month the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre will be presenting a sensory-friendly performance of Beauty and the Beast.  You can find ticket information here.
