Ballet Wichita offers a quality Nutcracker production and Jill is able to infuse what goes on back stage with respect and kindness. Thank you for providing a safe place for our dancers to express their joy of the season and dancing.

To patronize the Friend's Nutcracker is to support Ballet Mistress Sharon Rogers and allow Stan Rogers to continue to enable her. I cannot recommend the Friend's production. The production is well funded and this wealth is reflected in the costumes and staging.

What is not fine is the treatment of the parents, dancers and fear driven perfection for young dancers that happen behind the scene at the hand of Ballet Mistress Sharon Rogers and her focals. What is equally sad is Stan's willingness to enable Sharon and Friend's University's Board's lack of insight and involvement in this annual drama.

My child is a part of the Friends University Nutcracker this year. And we have loved it! I have been backstage to see the goings on and the treatment of the children has been excellent! Kind, gentle, loving ... outstanding! The children shine with joy as they participate in this Nutcracker. I loved the interactions I saw between Miss Sharon and the children. And my child's focals were so kind and loving. I'm so pleased to have been a part of this and look forward to my child being a part of this in the future. By the way, how does someone in Minneapolis know what goes on backstage here in Kansas????=)

We have been a part of The Nutcracker at Friends University for several years. The quality of the performance is outstanding.

Ballet takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It is also very athletic. Dancers spend the majority of their time on their technique, and that hard work pays off during performances. To achieve the level of accomplishment that the dancers desire and the audience deserves requires good training and high expectations. Parents of the dancers volunteer their time sewing and altering costumes, assisting backstage, and helping coordinate the many tasks required to ensure a smoothly and professionally run production.

This last year’s production was particularly enjoyable, and the kindness and respect shown by all this year was evident
