Pa. Ballet visits Chestnut Hill to kick off the holidays [photos]

Young ballerinas and ballet enthusiasts had the chance to visit famed Pennsylvania Ballet dancers in Chestnut Hill on Saturday. 

 

Dancers signed autographs as the Carol Schwartz Gallery and the Market at the Fareway while the Sugarplum Fair and the Mouse King from “The Nutcracker” visited with folks there for the event. 

The gallery also opened their lastest exhibit featuring the photography of author and artist Jordan Matter. The exhibit is open and free to the public at the Carol Schwartz Gallery on Bethlehem Pike through Dec. 30. 

Chestnut Hill’s Pennsylvania Ballet Day also included a scavenger hunt for children at shops and restaurants up and down Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike. Participants visited each shop for the chance to win free tickets to the Pennsylvania Ballet’s annual holiday production of “The Nutcracker.”
