WFMW: Taking Kids to The Ballet (and a GIVEAWAY!)

If you haven't tried taking your kids to the ballet, you are missing out!

To expose your children to the arts is one the greatest gifts you can give them.

My girls love going to the ballet, and while some may think that it's more of an adult activity, it is DEFINITELY for the whole family!

Seeing a story unfold through dance awakens magic in children.

It helps to develop their creativity and opens them up to seeing beauty in it's many forms.

We try to expose our girls to the ballet and theater as much as possible.  And now you have a chance to do the same!

The Dayton Ballet is one of the most respected dance companies in the country.  We are SOOOO lucky to have this amazing level of talent right here in our city.

And today I am doing a GIVEAWAY to a performance of Sleep Hollow.  The winner will receive 4 tickets to a performance at one of their shows October 20-23, (you can choose which performance!). 

If your children have never gone to the ballet, this is a great way to expose them for the first time. 

But maybe you have already been and are looking for a different experience.  This show is perfect for kids to celebrate the spookiness of Halloween and before the 3pm performance on the 23rd, they are hosting a costume party for children! 

Could this be more fun??!!

Disclaimer: I was provided with free tickets to The Dayton Ballet for this post.  All opinions are mine.   


  1. I am not entering because I can't go. (Which I am very bummed about.) Anywho, I wanted to say Carys' ballet teacher dances for Dayton Ballet and I can not wait to take her to see him perform in the Ramance Series.

  2. I went to the Dayton Ballet page and have to say the one that looks most interesting is the tried and true Nutcracker. Izzy hopes to go this year, but we'd also love to win these tickets!! Julie

  3. Dance is been a great source of inspiration for me. I get inspired by new and different formats of dancing.
