We didn't see any specific ballet, it was a gala thingy, or something like that. (As you notice, I'm not so good with the details. I do have a lot of pictures, though.) We saw parts from The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, (I think) Giselle, and a few others that I don't know.

After the performance, when we were walking out, I saw two little girls in the lobby. They were about 7 years old, and as I watched, one started running, with an almost comically intent expression on her face. I distinctly remember thinking to myself, "I bet she's gonna jump." And lo and behold, she did her version of a grand jeté. It was quite funny, in they way she executed it, and in the fact that it was completely predictable. I mean, really, after a ballet, you see a kid running intently through the lobby while another kid watches, obviously they are trying what they just saw. Still very amusing.
