Two of the giggly girls were selected to dance roles in The Nutcracker ballet when it was performed locally. Miss J performed an angel role and Miss L performed a soldier role. While it was a lot of work over several months, they enjoyed the opportunity immensely. The final performance was wonderful and the experience of working with a professional company made it invaluable. Miss L wants even more to grow up to be a ballerina now.
Since the local symphony only performs The Nutcracker Ballet every two years, it will be a while before the girls have a chance to audition once more. I am glad they can savor the experience for a while and be proud of the work they put in.
Here are a few of the dress rehearsal shots of the girls in costume.
We will watch a DVD of The Nutcracker tonight and enjoy all of the dancing and costumes.
Merry Christmas Eve!
