Ballet West


This week the Utah Valley Moms blog is featuring things to do over Spring Break in Utah with kids. Today’s feature is Ballet West.

From March 30 through April 2, 2017, you will have the opportunity to see The Little Mermaid, an enchanted ballet perfect for the whole family. Although this is not quite over Spring Break here in Utah County, it would be a great way to kick off the break.

Join Ballet West II dancers and students from the Ballet West Academy for a family adventure under the sea. Take a trip into Hans Christian Andersen’s watery world, complete with a brave mermaid, a prince in search of true love, and a devious sea witch.

Performance schedule:

  • March 30 at 7 pm
  • March 31 at 7 pm
  • April 1 at 2 pm and 7 pm
  • April 2 at 12 pm

Buy tickets to The Little Mermaid. Family event, recommended for ages 3 and older, no babes in arms.

The Salt Lake City Toyota Dealership Association is a main sponsor of Ballet West.

Over the past year or so, we have been looking for a good car for our family. We have been looking at Toyota Highlanders specifically. This week, Mark Miller Toyota has kindly offered to let us drive a brand new Toyota Highlander.

Things I love about the Highlander:

  • Space. The first 2 rows have ample space for leg room and with the 3rd row lying down, there’s plenty of space in the back of the car. If we need more seats, the 3rd row allows for 8 passengers total. We recently made a huge Costco trip, bringing bags of mulch home and some groceries. We had 1 seat lying down in the 3rd row to fit the bags of mulch and everything and everyone fit nicely.
  • Smooth. The car drives so smoothly. It has great suspension and the entire ride is so comfortable.
  • Dashboard and controls on the steering wheel. There really isn’t anything else I need from a car when it comes to technology. Maps, audio, Bluetooth for music and calling, and all sort of unnecessary capabilities that I’m realizing are completely necessary.
  • Other things:  keyless entry and a push start for the engine, heated seats, sunroof, and amazing turn radius.
