Oprah Winfrey continued her "Ultimate Favorite Things" show Monday and included Chicago's Joffrey Ballet as part of the show featuring things she can't live without.

Dancers from the ballet company that makes its home in the Loop took center stage dressed as the prince and Sugar Plum Fairy from "The Nutcracker."

"We're beyond thrilled," Christopher Clinton Conway, the ballet company's executive director, said after the show aired.

The Joffrey's presentation of "The Nutcracker" runs Dec. 10-26 at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University.
