The Mutt-cracker Ballet

Tonight’s the night in Birmingham, Alabama for a holiday ballet with a new twist.  21 dogs will be performing alongside ballerinas in the Birmingham Ballet’s Mutt-cracker.

Proceeds from the performance go to the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.

Dogs had to audition for roles in the ballet with a dog trainer observing.  A few of the dogs are rescues.

Here’s a few photos of preparations for the big night, courtesy of Tamika Moore, photographer for Al.com:
