I saw Winter's Tale at one of the cinema performances, and was utterly entranced. Beautiful music, stunning choreography and exquisite dancing combined to make it a truly great dance experience, and I am delighted that it will be available on DVD.

The word has gotten out about Winter. Visitors are traveling in droves to Clearwater to visit Winter who has become an inspiration to adults and children alike, especially to children who are amputees themselves.
