Today I indulged one of my guilty pleasures. Every year I get together with a girlfriend for lunch, followed by a performance of The Nutcracker at the Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton.
Named after Harry and Ida Leiberman, the Harid Conservatory is a renowned ballet training school for high-school students. It’s a tough school for gifted young dancers who succeed in top ranking ballet companies around the world. Each year the school presents two seasonal performances, my favorite being the winter performance which includes The Nutcracker, Act II. This performance also includes classical and neoclassical ballets, modern dance and has become a favorite guilty pleasure of my Christmas season.
