Happy Anniversary Navy Officer Aaron and wife Jenny from Rochester!
He bought her tickets to the Great Russian Nutcracker for their 7th Anniversary!
How sweet is this couple? Navy Officer Aaron Thompson called Moscow Ballet from an undisclosed part of Southeast Asia (!), to ask about VIP tickets to the Great Russian Nutcracker in Rochester as a gift for their 7th anniversary for wife Jenny.
Jenny has always wanted to see the Great Russian Nutcracker and somehow missed it each year, so Aaron made arrangements to make Jenny’s dream come true – from half way around the world! Aaron, a 14 year career service man, is a reservist who was called up for this tour of duty. He works in advertising when not serving his country and Jenny is a graphic design artist. What a thoughtful gift and easy to give her from a distance too!
On the phone Aaron told us he “wanted to make sure they have a great holiday experience.” Moscow Ballet is honored and happy to give the Thompson’s the Military discount, valid for military and their families.

Looking for a few GREAT Dance Studios…Apply to be the Host Dance Studio for auditions in your city!
Moscow Ballet’s Great Russsian Nutcracker and all new Romeo and Juliet are touring to cities across North America this November and December and we are looking for host dance studios in each city. Auditions for local children who will perform in the Moscow Ballet production in their city are held in each city.
A Moscow Ballet Audition Director attends each city’s audition and leads follow-up rehearsals. Children who perform in a Moscow Ballet production gain a once-in-a-lifetime experience of working alongside award-winning, professional Russian dancers in some of the most prestigious venues in North America. The dance schools that are selected to host Moscow Ballet auditions benefit their students by offering exposure to the professional and classically trained Russian dancers.
Moscow Ballet, in its 19th year of toruing, has supported a generation of young dancers as they progress from year to year on stage. We are proud of these young artists and their dance studios. Join Moscow Ballet’s ever growing dance community! Call 800-320-1733×10 for more information.
