Wonder

Wonder is an original contemporary ballet choreographed by Stephanie Morales. This enchanting tale tells the story of two orphan children, Grace and Nick, who are searching for the wonder of the holiday season. Their journey takes them through a magical toy store, a snow storm and dancing icicles, Christmas lights that come to life, and a choir. All these adventures lead up to the discovery that the wonder of the holiday season stems from love.
