Applauds Augusta Ballet for performance and casting



Each holiday season the Augusta Ballet Co. presents Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. The ballet is beautifully choreographed and staged and delights many in the Central Savannah River Area, as it has for many years.

I want to applaud ballet mistress Bon Ellis and artistic director Zanne Colton for including among their cast members this year an angel who is developmentally challenged.

This took courage. It reflects the strength of the Augusta Ballet School and its excellent teachers. And a special angel was able to sparkle alongside her peers.
