I've been teaching my senior ballet students the Nutcracker variations this year - I miss the Nutcracker performance days, though! When I was in Jr. High a company from Moscow did The Nutcracker in Dallas every Christmas and cast the small roles from the local studios. MOST FUN EVER. You didn't have to worry about keeping your job or making a grade! Those things tend to take the joy out of being a "bunhead".Good luck to your girls!
This is my girls' 4th Nutcracker- they do it the weekend before Thanksgiving so they can hire 6 professionals to flesh out the performance from the bigger city close to us.This year, both girls are party boys, soldiers and garland girls (in waltz- second act)After Thanksgiving, we can relax and choose a different Nutcracker to see and enjoy- ours is the best, of course :)
How fun. I'll bet they are getting a bit nervous. I know I would be.Have a terrific WW. :)
I'll bet they will perform stunningly! beautiful photo.
I would be nervous, too! They look well prepared, though. Love the pose there! I take ballet classes, but fortunately I get it easy as an adult: no performances. ;)
Dance moment, greaaaaaaaaaaaaat
They're so beautiful. You are a great mom, putting up with the adults, I'm sure. They won't forget this and have beautiful memories. Break a leg.
just looked at your page DSGM- nice new design! I see that St John the Baptist is your patron- I started this blog on his death day (may his memory be eternal)....looking more and more eastern, DSGM :)
Cute girls! I'm sewing Ladies' gowns for a local production! Nutty! (haha!) Many Blessings!
