Does your daughter live in her tutu? Does your son love to own the stage? Here's a chance for your budding dancer to enjoy a special day all about ballet at the Boston Children's Museum, featuring the talents of the Boston Ballet. Visitors can listen to the music of the Boston Ballet Orchestra quintet, or try a dance class with Boston Ballet School teachers.Throughout the day, kids -- and their caregivers -- can participate in a number of activities in all areas of the museum, including hearing "The Nutcracker" story and creating a crown, designing their own creations, visiting the Pointe Shoe Petting Zoo, and seeing sketches and samples of fabric used in the new version of "The Nutcracker." Kids can also meet Nutcracker characters and pose for photos in front of a replica backdrop, discover how high they can jump, and try out a real nutcracker. Mon., Nov 11, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. All ages. $14; under one and members free. Boston Children's Museum, 308 Congress St., Boston. www.bostonchildrensmuseumorg
