Visit with Santa and Albert the Elf at Bachman's on Lyndale! The holiday season begins with a play, sing-along, live music and more!
Albert the Elf has been invited to the hottest dance at the North Pole, but there’s just one problem: He’s worried he can’t dance. Santa is ready and willing to dish out helpful tips on how to boogie, but Albert’s not sure he can trust his old friend for advice on the dance floor. Will Albert gather the courage he needs to bust a move with his best elves, or will his wavering confidence keep him from enjoying the most exciting event of the season?
