Mellow Yellow Monday-ChiILin' At The Dance Along Nutcracker

We've been coming to The Dance Along Nutcracker in Chicago annually, since the kids were toddlers.   In past years, they've had a fun, over the top conductor who was a middle aged man in a tutu.   A couple of years ago, they made it a Nutcracker Circus with 2 little Asian girls who did an amazing contortionist act.   

By comparison, this year was pretty vanilla.   Still, it was a lot of fun for a free event.   A zillion little girls in ballerina costumes got to watch and dance with real ballerinas.   And it's always a treat to see events in the gorgeous Preston Bradley Hall in The Cultural Center, with it's domed stained glass ceiling and ornate walls.

We've pulled out the shots with a little or a lot of yellow, to feature for Mellow Yellow Monday.   Click below for more fun yellow shots from around the world.



  1. Looks like a lot of fun to watch them dance.

    Yellow Leaves are so much fun for kids!

  2. What a wonderful opportunity for children to dance with professional ballerinas. I love the little girls in tutus and heavy footwear - very funny!
    Superb slide show - well done :-)

  3. Wow I love dancing and to see people dance it amazes me. Happy Monday!
