CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

A group of 20 tiny dancers got the opportunity to take a class with the star of the Charlottesville ballet’s "Nutcracker Suite."

Before Sunday evening's performance at Piedmont Virginia Community College, the budding ballerinas leapt into first position. It was part of a class with Clara, the star of the nutcracker.

Instructor Sara Jansen Clayborne stated, "They will learn some child-friendly choreography that they'll see the dancers perform on the stage once they come and watch the show.”

The class lasted 45 minutes. Afterward, the children and their families got a backstage tour.
