Carlton Senior Living of San Leandro received a very special visit from Oakland’s Diablo Ballet. The stars of the Nutcracker shared their history with the ballet, their daily routines, and what it takes to prepare for this iconic holiday tradition. They ended with three performances, including the unforgettable Flower Dance, the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz of the Snowflakes.  It was a nostalgic and enjoyable evening for all!
