A Date To The BalletSeptember 26, 2017 | Chateau Brickyard
Just this past December, we were able to plan a very special WOW! Moment for two very special residents: a date to see the Nutcracker!
Vern and Dorine are one of our newest couples at Chateau Brickyard Senior Living. They had only been living with us for 2 months, and we wanted to do something special for them over the holidays, making sure they felt right at home in their new community!
Vern and Dorine share a love of dancing. In fact, they met square dancing! Here at Chateau Brickyard, they are always participating in our ballroom dance classes, and attend our music performances. Given their love of dance and music, we thought a holiday trip to the Nutcracker Ballet would be a perfect date for this sweet duo.
They hadn't been able to attend the Nutcracker in over 6 years, and their family wasn't able to take them this year. So, the day after Christmas we decided to take them! Vern and Dorine loved the costumes and the gracefulness of the dancers. They were in awe of the kids' talents too! One highlight of the ballet was when the main ballerina first came out; Vern and Dorine commented on how she looked like a beautiful swan! They were truly blown away by the performance. Watching them have so much fun was truly a WOW! Moment for everyone involved!
